I will give some hints for installing MAME on a Raspberry Pi 4.

Keep in mind that MAME requires a lot of performance from the CPU. As shown in the Requirements section, you will need at least a Raspberry Pi 4.

Running MAME

MAME is dynamically linked against some libraries which may not be installed on your machine.

The following commands have been tested on a fresh installation. After installing, you should be able to run MAME. (Please report if you find a different situation.)

Raspberry Pi OS

Debian version 11 (bullseye)

sudo apt install libsdl2-ttf-2.0-0
