Hi Barry

I have installed Ubuntu 12 on Windows and GCC 6.

When I type at the prompt # make

then message appear:

root@L0610029558:/usr/src/wolfmame/wolfmamesrc/wolfmame# make
GCC 6.2.0 detected

Nothing happens? The script dp not run at all? What input is needed here except "make"
I also did try make=SUBTARGET=arcade

same response:
GCC 6.2.0 detected

It should work with 'make SUBTARGET=arcade' or just 'make'

I would recommend not being logged in as root, this is not needed to build or run MAME, although that shouldn't stop it building.

Try adding VERBOSE=1 to the make commandline, this will display each build command. Perhaps something is failing silently, although I'd expect make to at least display an error.
Usually, nothing being displayed after GCC x.x.x detected suggests that the build is complete and nothing more needs to be done.
