Pretty atrocious. Athlon tbird/1333, Matrox G450, nesicide-emulator is somewhere around ⅓ real time. Worse when GL is enabled, maybe a factor of 2, but without an FPS meter anyway it's hard to tell how much. Without GL it's worse by an additional factor of four when inside the IDE? But really, this is all guesswork from the listening to the gaps between audio packets.

Thanks. I expected I'd have to be doing some optimizing...1333MHz single core seems like a respectable lower limit. But of course my headache is figuring out how to optimize but still present an as-close-to-accurate representation of the internal state of the CPU/APU/PPU as possible. I know I canget there with a catch-up approach, that catches up on any breakpoints...just need to find the time to rework my emu core library!

Here running x86_64 Ubuntu 11.10. apt-get -f install tries to remove nesicide. Cause: dependency to libqtwebkit4:386. Note that I already have libqtwebkit4.

Yeah something's not making Software Center happy...I think because libqtwebkit4 is 'untrusted'.

If I do:

sudo dpkg -i nesicide_1.014-1_i386.deb

that eventually concludes that I have an unmet dependency on libqtwebkit4. Then, doing:

sudo apt-get -f install

fixes it and finishes the install.

Could you do me a favor and try the sudo dpkg I did and post that [PM if you want]?

I already did this that way. I redid it (I removed nesicide before obviously) :

I do have libqtwebkit4 installed, as I stated in my last post. Maybe this debian package is screwed up with 64 bit OS? Ideally, this should be tested on another 64 bit Ubuntu machine --- native, not through a VM, like me.

Any advice on installing this on a x64 Ubuntu 11.04 Classic? Wouldn't install the 386 package.

Can you elaborate on "wouldn't install"?

I opened the .deb package and it wouldn't let me install on my x64 Ubuntu 11.04 computer.

Ok here's what I did...

1. Created a Ubuntu 11.04 VM from the ISO for X86 in VirtualBox on my Win7 64-bit laptop.
2. Performed the following commands:
a. wget ... 1_i386.deb
b. wget ... 1_i386.deb
c. wget ... 1_i386.deb
d. sudo dpkg -i libnesicide-emulator_1.004-1_i386.deb
e. sudo dpkg -i nesicide-emulator_1.004-1_i386.deb
f. sudo apt-get -f install
g. sudo dpkg -i nesicide_1.004-1_i386.deb
h. sudo apt-get -f install

The two sudo apt-get steps were required to resolve the dependencies on Qt libraries.

After that both apps are functional. I guess I need to go native Ubuntu 11.04 on this machine and try it there.

Finally got around to booting up ubuntu and this is what I get on the depackage commands:

dpkg: error processing libnesicide-emulator_1.004-1_i386.deb (--install):

Did you try using 32-bit Ubuntu instead of 64-bit Ubuntu?

Author:  3gengames [ Mon Mar 19, 2012 9:28 am ]
Post subject: 

I'm assuming that'd work, but I don't have a 32-bit PC with ubuntu at the moment.

Hey guys, I'm the "Linux Nerd" in the credits for Nesicide. I didn't realize there was an actual interest in Nesicide with 64-bit platforms. It should run just fine, deps considered as we do have working version with 64-bit OSX (at least at one point)... If you want to express some interest, you should hop onto #nesicide on as I literally never check these forums :) I can most likely get some packages together by the end of this weekend with someone helping me test -- assuming everyone is talking about x86-64 platforms.

I give up on other IRC's, so I'll just say it here. I run AMD x64.

Any news on this yet for a 64-bit deb? I know it should work, but what I can't install at all, I can't even run 32-bit.

Unfortunately, no. Unless Tepples is 64-bit. I don't know where to begin...and the help has disappeared!

Shot in the dark here...can you try the *any*.deb packages on my website?
As Tepples discovered, for now, you'll need to download libc64-emulator_1.000-1_any.deb even if you have absolutely no intention of ever using NESICIDE to debug Commodore 64 programs with VICE. I haven't set it up so it truly dynamically loads the libs for the supported targets yet.

So, there's four *any*.deb packages. All I did was change the Architecture: from i386 to any. That's why it's a shot in the dark... :shock:

When we finish getting multiarch deployed in Debian/Ubuntu, you should be able to continue to just release i386 builds and have it Just Work on x86-64 machines.

Releasing debs marked with the _any architecture with ELFs inside is kinda not cricket.

I have a laptop with a Core2Duo running amd64 debian sid, and could set it up to do builds if that's all that's needed.
