Hello, thanks for what you are offering the CentOS/RHEL community.

As near as I can determine, there's been no new builds of MAME http://www.mamedev.org/ for RHEL or CentOS since sdlmame 0.115 (for CentOS 5 and CentOS 6.), which is many years ago, and there's no CentOS 7 packages.

MAME is usually easy enough to build from source but for those who can't, it could use a new package.

Fedora more or less is generating monthly builds for the last many months. IDK if that will be of any help.

It's also in Debian, FreeBSD and OpenBSD (meaning its past license issues seem to have been resolved to their liking enough to land it in their main repos.)

http://www.mamedev.org/release.html for info on retrieving monthly release source (https://github.com/mamedev/mame/ )

I can add mame-0.163 from Fedora 22, newer versions require too new "lua" packages than available in CentOS I'm afraid.

If that builds, would it be acceptable?

Aaand it doesn't build, for reasons unknown to me yet... Sorry mate.
