Gang-

I cannot seem to locate the ipk for Znester anymore, even at the ZSI site.
When I copy it to my 5500, it shows up in add/remove apps, but never shows up as an icon to be launched. I seem to have all the correct libraries (as well as a ton of games waiting to be played-Tecmo Super Bowl!!!) Any idea what I need to do to get the emulator running?

Thanks for everything! This forum rocks!

Znester is a command line tool. If you want a GUI, install zemufe found here:

Will I still need the zNester app with the gui nes emulator? (The link to the zNester ipk appears dead)

Thanks-

Dennis
CoreyC
yes.. you will still need znester to be installed.

I found it here:

http://cnaude.freeshell.org/zaurus/feed/zn...r_7.1-1_arm.ipk

Sorry for all the idiot questions, man. I cannot seem to find znester in add/remove now when I transfer the ipk. Do I have to install it from the command line?

A thousand apologies-

Dennis
CoreyC
That's strange... yeah, try installing from the command line and see if it gives you any error messages.

ipkg install znester_7.1-1_arm.ipk

Znester also depends on zlib and libsdl, make sure those are installed.
CoreyC
zlib: http://club.h14m.org/kenji/zaurus/zlib_1.1.4-2_arm.ipk

libsdl: http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/sukoshi/c700_s...0030704_arm.ipk

Znester runs in landscape mode, just so you know before going any further. Zfceu (another nes emulator with it's own GUI) will run in portrait mode, but compatibility is lower. It is hard to find too... I have the ipk I can email to you if you want to try it out.

Yikes! Here's what I got when I tried it from the command line:

zcat: znester_7.1-1arm.ipk: not in gzip format
zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz from znester_7.1-1arm.ipk

WTF?

Dennis
CoreyC
Unzip this and put the file into /usr/bin and you should be set.

You are using a qtopia rom, correct?
dshumate
Corey-

I am using Qtopia (3.10 Sharp ROM). I try to use the file manager to cut and paste-but it says "paste failed" (Same with copy and paste to directory.)

How can I do it from the command line?

Thanks again-

Dennis (owes Corey a six-pack)
CoreyC
cd /mnt/cf (or where ever your file is)
su
cp znester /usr/bin/znester
dshumate
Corey-

Well, that did copy it over to usr/bin. However, now when I try to launch the emulator, it just gives me an hourglass when I choose a nes rom from "Documents", then stops. I've rebooted the unit, but still no dice. What's the command line to run it?

Dennis
CoreyC
znester your-rom.nes
CoreyC
I've uploaded the other nes emulator I was talking about, zfceu, and it's depends to http://hostnic.us/zfceu/index.htm

If you keep having trouble with znester, try that one.
dshumate
Corey-

Thanks, I'll keep trying it.

Appreciate the assistance-

Dennis,

I had the same problem. I found out that coping the file did not give executable permissions. chmod +x znester fixes it.

i have the zfceu ipk if anyone needs it - let me know. works great except i have to use the keyboard instead of the hardware buttons.

You might want to check out your link Corey, it's reports a 404 when you click on it. BTW, will Frozen Bubble work with the cacko ROM? (BTW, thanks smile.gif )

FYI, you got the paste failed message because you didn't have the permissions to write to that directory (weren't root). If you are lazy like me (which I consider a Good Thing), you will get Midnight Commander and use it in a terminal (shell).

Start up mc like this:

su (if you want to be root)
export TERM=linux
mc -a

Then to get a function key (like F9), press "Cancel" and "9" at the same time. This should make life a wee bit easier for you.

"Cancel" by itself = escape.


Where I got this info (thanks Lars!), and where you can get the program:

Anybody know how to do a "Control-o" on the Z?
