Commodore 64 Emulators for Linux?
I know, I know… Vice.
The thing is, there is some things I am happy with Vice, some things not so much.
Frodo at one stage had a Linux build (very old), that does not work very well on modern graphics. The developer was at one stage working on a more modern SDL version…, but again ancient history.
CCS64 used to be my favourite emulator that has in fact had a recent release, but chances of them going open source or supporting Linux I would rank as nil.
Some other projects that were mentioned on C64 Wiki that sound like they had intentions of supporting Linux look dead in the water. If anyone has experience of running a Linux build of any of these in the last 10 years, they can tell me differently.
Most of the development work in emulators seems focused on latter systems. Just wondering if anyone has heard word of anything C64 related?

Hosx64 or MESS look possible alternatives to Vice? Might have to do some digging.
Think I tried getting into MESS on the C64 side years ago and gave up on it.
Hosx64 looks good, is that just a fork of Vice X64 code?
