KXMame, a port of gxmame to QT/KDE would be a great addition to portage. Along
with the port it has other enhancements such as
- Customizable toolbar where one can add, remove and change icons of
the toolbar buttons.
- Customized game icon size (8, 16, 24, 32 pixels or set to 0 pixel to
disable game icons.)
- Fast. Kxmame is noticably more responsive than gxmame due to various caching.

Version bump. Added ~amd64 keyword.
OK, this actually belongs to games guys. Reassign.
I just wanted to say that the second ebuild (kxmame-1.1.ebuild) worked fine for
me on AMD64 :)
It would be really great to see it in portage - there aren't many frontends and
most of them are not developed anymore...
Version 1.2 was just released.
Renaming the ebuild works fine.
I would really like to see it in the official portage tree as well.
Renaming to 1.91 works for the v2 'preview' release, which seems to work fine here. I haven't tried v1.2.
I'll echo the previous poster's remark - it would be really good to get this into portage. Previously I used gxmame which isn't modular X aware (mind you, neither is xmame, but I've modded the ebuild to install here).

Minor mod for kxmame-2.0_beta, if anyone's interested. Works here.
Should really have made this a patch, but there you go.

When I use "kxmame-2.0_beta.ebuild" I get an error while linking, that the XML_... functions cannot be referenced. This error occurs because there is no reference to the expat library. So I added a src_compile section in the ebuild and "patch" the src/Makefile.am file before the real compiling started.
Add expat to the libraries that are linked to the executable.
sed 's/kxmame_LDADD = $(GLIB_LDFLAGS) $(GLIB_LIBADD) $(LIB_KFILE) $(LIB_KDEPRINT)/kxmame_LDADD = $(GLIB_LDFLAGS) $(GLIB_LIBADD) $(LIB_KFILE) $(LIB_KDEPRINT) -lexpat/g' -i src/Makefile.am

Patch the Makefile.am so expat will be linked to the executable.
I am unable to get kxmame-2.0_beta.ebuild posted on 2008-04-09 to work with sdlmame. I don't think the ebuild references the version that includes the patch for sdlmame. Since xmame is pretty much dead, it would be nice to use the version that has the sdlmame patches.
How is this going? I've seen this program in many distro's repositories, and it seems to work good for almost everyone, so how is it going here in gentoo?

I changed the ebuild for the last version I found:
I use the name "kxmame-2.0_pre20070603.ebuild" for the ebuild.
It is also placed in my overlay.

It's ok for now, but when this bug was opened it was still being developed.

Sure. But I think there's very low probability of adding dead unsupported project in portage tree now.
yep, seems dead now. reopen if it revives.
