    Play MAME on a virtual Raspberry Pi

    Drew Fustini

      I just came across this intriguing post on Hackaday:

      The first Raspberry Pi build is a MAME machine

      [Nick] figured he should hit the ground running, so he emulated a Raspberry Pi to get everything ready for the MAME machine he’ll build when his new toy arrives.

       

      The full details are in this blog post:

       

      Compiling xmame .106 on the Rasberry Pi

      I had played around with the Raspberry Pi Developer VM that Russell Davis created a couple weeks ago which made it easy to cross-compile for the Pi.  This looks like a step beyond as it appears to allow you to run Pi executables in an emulator (QEMU I think).

       

      I think I'll be giving this a try soon.  Anyone else?

       

       

      Cheers,
