Post ZSNES crashes on 64 bit ubuntu when trying to go full screen
I am running ubuntu 15.04 amd64 and when I try to go full screen at a resolution higher than the default, ZSNES crashes.
I got ZSNES from the i386 repository.

I then tried to compile zsnes from its source but ran into problems.
I think I have all the packages I need installed, but mabey they are too new?
./configure --with-x --enable-libao --enable-release

./configure: line 3574: syntax error near unexpected token `1.2.0,,AC_MSG_ERROR'
./configure: line 3574: `AM_PATH_SDL(1.2.0,,AC_MSG_ERROR(SDL >= 1.2.0 is required))'

After some searching I found an explanation here:
"ZSNES contains 32-bit ASM code, which means it can only be compiled as a 32-bit binary. You can run 32-bit binaries on your 64-bit system, if you have the correct libraries installed.

If you MUST compile from source, you have several options:
(1). Compile from another 32-bit machine, making sure that it is optimized correctly for your 64-bit CPU instruction set. You can also use a generic instruction set like i686.
(2). Load up a 32-bit live CD on your machine and compile from there, it will be a bit slow but whatever. Than save the binary to a USB drive and bring it over.
(3). Set up a 32-bit chroot on your 64-bit machine and compile in that."

Pagefault says that the 64 bit compilation problem will be resolved in the next release. If you can wait, it should be out in a few days.

<pagefault> i'd break up with my wife if she said FF8 was awesome
