Build Status Build status

This project is a fork of the original Nestopia source code, plus the Linux port. The purpose of the project is to enhance the original, and ensure it continues to work on modern operating systems.

The following platforms are supported:

  • Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, OS X, Windows
  • Anything supported by libretro

This project depends on the following libraries: libsdl2, libepoxy, libao, libarchive, zlib

Optionally, it depends on GTK+3 for the GUI, currently only available on Linux and BSD.

Installing Dependencies

Install dependencies required for building on Debian-based Linux distributions:

apt-get install build-essential autoconf autoconf-archive automake autotools-dev libsdl2-dev libepoxy-dev libarchive-dev zlib1g-dev

Optional dependencies:

apt-get install libao-dev libjack-dev libgtk-3-dev


To build using Autotools (optional arguments in square brackets):

autoreconf -vif
./configure [--enable-gui] [--enable-doc] [--with-ao] [--with-jack]


make install

Differences on OS X:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/opt/libarchive/lib/pkgconfig/
./configure --disable-gui

In order to bootstrap the Autotools you will need:

  1. Autoconf; latest 2.69 release (http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)

    GNU Autoconf produces the ./configure script from configure.ac.

  2. Automake; latest 1.15 release (http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/)

    GNU Automake produces the Makefile.in precursor, that is processed with ./configure to yield the final Makefile.

  3. Autoconf Archive; latest 2016.09.16 release (http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf-archive/)

    The configure.ac requires a number of m4 macros from the Autoconf archive.
