Ok I know this is going to be a duh thing but damit I can't figure it out... I did:

Yum install snes9x, and it went great.... but where is it now? I searched and brought up nothing on snes9x... I am lost :confused:

Quake3 went straight to the games section, so that made me even more confused.

Try doing
updatedb
(and wait till this finishes)
then do
locate snes9x
(or were you searching this way already?).

"rpm -ql snes9x" will tell you what that package installed. You might want to pipe the output through less...

Look for stuff with "bin" in the pathname.

It might not put a menu entry in (I don't know - I've nver tried it), in which case you'll want to create a launcher somewhere on your panel.

How do I make the launcher. The updatedb worked and found it but how do i create a launcher for it?

These are the files I found:
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43/faqs.txt
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43/license.txt
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43/readme.txt
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43/readme.unix
/usr/share/doc/snes9x-1.43/snes9x_default_config.cfg

And one here which I am checking now. The ones above seem to be windows files detailing a .exe file
/usr/bin/snes9x


So again no file to run... I would pref ZSNES but I have no clue how to compile it to run. But it looks like I will not be using this either

In the other file was a program it seems but it does not launch..... so I give up how do u get ZSNES to compile anyway? I know it was always a better emu for me anyway and I would pref it.

Well I had to go into rot and chage it to myself as being the owner. Now I cn get it to open if I tell the rom to use SNES9x... it will not work like the normal SNES9x....

It also does nothing more then show the rom header info and thats it. Nothing displays on the screen.... so I am again lost.

I'm not familiar with the snes9x program. Is this a program for playing video from cds or dvds?
