I am no longer using Linux on my computer, and so I wanted to try at this emulator business again. You guys said that WINE was most likely the problem, so I assumed it would work this time. Thing is, I have the same problem that I did before. Anything else I could try?
The turn-only and no walking issue you were describing is either a hardware issue with whatever exotic controller you may be using (keyboard ftw), or maybe you just have N64 range turned down. In either case try turning it way up, and it may be a bit more playable.

The button auto-mashing is definitely unusual; I would have to say that must be a device/driver issue.

For example, in Goldeneye, if I hold R to use the aiming reticle, it flashes constantly instead of remaining solid. Also, if I try to turn, it might jerk a couple inches to the side, but then doesn't move any more. I am running this on a brand new Alienware M14x with Windows 7, so I know that's not the issue.
Mayflash sucks.

Sorry, but I read Mayflash problems like that a lot.
