Installing Attract-Mode on Fedora 23

Once you know the right packages to grab, it’s simple and quick!

#Get the package from the developer and ready it for compilation
wget https://github.com/mickelson/attract/archive/v2.0.0.tar.gz
mkdir attractMode && mv attract-2.0.0.tar.gz attractMode/
cd attractMode/

#Get the required prerequisites (aside from gcc - get that if you don't have it, as well)
sudo dnf install SFML SFML-devel openal-soft-devel ffmpeg-libs-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel

#Make the binary
make -j 3

#Install the files (the binary goes to /usr/local/bin and the config files go to /usr/local/share/attract)
make install

Done!

This is a beautiful front-end.  I’ll be posting some more information about getting one’s MAME library fully configured on Fedora 23 soon.
