Need help installing pSX [solved]

Recommended Posts

Note: I own a Playstation 1 and I also own the games I want to play with the emulator.


I'm using Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring. I want to run the playstation 1 emulator pSX.


This emulator works perfectly on Windows.


I went to the official website http://psxemulator.gazaxian.com/, and downloaded the latest Linux version tar file.


I extracted the tar file, and put SCPH1001.bin ps1 bios image (this image worked perfectly on WIndows) in the bios folder of the emulator.


I followed the instructions in the readme.txt file which came with the pSX emulator, including installing al the required packages.


After doing this, I followed the instructions to open pSX, including making the binary executable.


I ran the pSX binary from the terminal.


A faint window frame appeared for a second, but nothing else happened.


This emulator works perfect on WIndows.


Please help me install this emulator.


Please don't tell me to use another emulator. I only want to install this emulator.

Do you have any error messages after you run it? This would be shown in the terminal window. Please copy and paste here.

Here is the error message:



*** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused
[src/linux/sound.cpp, line 582]: 'snd_pcm_open(&pcm_handle,dev->info->device_fname,SND_PCM_STREAM_PLAYBACK,0)' returned 'Connection refused'
pSX: pcm_params.c:2259: snd_pcm_hw_refine: Assertion `pcm && params' failed.


Please help me install pSX.

I followed the last posters advice and pSX worked.


I went to Mandriva Control Center>Sound configuration, and I unchecked every option related to PulseAudio.
