so there were no errors during the install?
what error do you get when you launch zsnes, does the gui even appear?
rpm.pbone.net is useful for oneoff quick searches but always try yum and the main repositories first, it can save major headaches with dependency issues.
you'll see at the bottom of the download page for the zsnes rpm a list of required libraries etc (dependencies) it is quite long. the rpm installer should warn about dependencies but yum is just easier to use.
you could try compiling the source, often it just requires 3 commands in the source directory
EDIT the link to the source rpm is on the rhs (at the top) of the download page
unfortunately I can't get that source package to compile on my FC6 installation
I did an rpm -Uhv zsnes-1.42-1.rhfc4.nr.src.rpm
you get a spec file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS, and a tar.gz file in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
so I tried to build an rpm:
rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/zsnes.spec
saild I need 'nasm' so:
yum install nasm (it's in the core repository)
then tried the rpm build again, and failed with errors
The tried to build the source directly
tar xvf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/zsnes142src.tar.gz
at this point it onimously says 'now type make and pray'
and unfortunately the build fails during make.
ah well, maybe you'll have more luck, I haven't got time to pursue this further
