Hi Tyra, Thanks for keep psx alive on arch, I have a better solution for pulseaudio problem on psx, Install JACK2 and cadence then in cadence options (Jack bridges) Select: ALSA -> Pulseaudio ->JACK(plugin) or ALSA -> JACK (plugin) in the second one you cant hear anything but in the first one you can use psx at the same time as pulseaudio and you can use pavucontrol to ajust volumen on psx :), sorry for my english.

You can somehow forget what I said, because I found a very dirty workaround to make it work without killing Pulseaudio. You actually need the handle of your sound device and add it as "Device=[handle]" under the [Sound] section of ~/.pSX/psx.ini. One way to get it is to run pSX as root (without any other program using the sound card), go to Configuration->Sound and select the right plughw device. Close pSX and find the device handle in /root/.pSX/psx.ini. I don't know if there's another way to get that handle without going root.
Anyway, once the configuration is done, you can finally run pSX as normal user, with the big inconvenient that pSX needs total control over the sound card, like a good ol' OSS program, so no other program shall use the sound card at the same time.

I just finished installing gcc-multilib and this what I got when I tried to run pSX for the first time after the installation.

I'm having the same problem as EdgbarButan. Everytime I try to run pSX I get:


pad=0
/usr/bin/pSX: line 31: 23436 Segmentation fault ${psx_libdir}/pSX "$@"

Hm, I'm using the nouveau driver and I do have lib32-nouveau-dri installed.
As epsxe doesn't work either, the problem must be somewhere else. Thanks.

No problem for me. Maybe you didn't install the 32-bit library for your graphic card.

Does this work for anybody on 64bit? All dependencies are up to date, but I get a segmentation fault after selecting the bios file without any further error message.

Thanks ! And for the forced pulseaudio server on gnome 3? :)

trya commented on 2011-06-07 02:15

Another update: there's no more "psx.real" in /usr/bin. The real executable is now found in /usr/lib/pSX. This should improve usability with docks (especially Gnome-Shell one).

trya commented on 2011-06-06 21:53

Update: new desktop icon!

@action_owl: pSX is a 32-bit program, lib32 libraries are needed in order to launch 32-bit programs on 64-bit systems. lib32-alsa-lib, lib32-libglade and lib32-xcb-util are in [multilib] (add this repository in pacman.conf), lib32-gtkglext is in the AUR.

Where does one find bin32-psx?

I'm using a 64bit system.
