I installed fceux a few weeks ago by following the "long" instuctions:downloading debian image, apt-getting programs, compiling. I can load ROMs just fine, but when I save a game it does not stick around. My .fceux directory has 777 privs but nothing is ever saved in the sav directory.

When I quit fceux by pressing the orange button it appears like the program crashes instead of gracefully quitting. The last statement fceux gives is "Aborting". Maybe this is part of the problem? I've so far had issues with Zelda and Deje Vu.
