  • Raze Z80 emulator by Richard Mitton.
  • Z80 Mame core from the Mame project.
  • YM2610 Mame core by Tatsuyuki Satoh.

Finding the rpm for SuSe 9.3 is quite easy if You know The GnGeo specific page is here.

You need to unzip the NeoGeo romset in /usr/share/gngeo in order to make it work. You will have to google a little bit, search for “neogeo bios rom” or download them at Spooman homepage or use emule (P2P).
Copy NEO-GEO.ROM, ng-lo.rom, ng-sfix.rom and ng-sm1.rom to /usr/share/gngeo as root.

GnGeo now has an experimental gui. You will find a menu entry in KDE/System/GnGeo.
