Wine activity - runs windows programs

Postby madewokherd » Fri Jan 23, 2009 3:15 pm

At http://ftp.winehq.org/pub/wine/Wine.xo is an activity that runs Windows software, based on the open source Wine project. It's easy enough to set up that, when it works, it requires no explanation, and it's not horribly broken anymore.

There are, of course, limitations on what an XO can run and on what Wine can run. Some Windows software needs tweaking before it will work.

The XO does not have opengl installed by default. This needs to be installed before Wine's directx or opengl can function.

I'd appreciate any feedback if you try it.

I tried it out and worked when I first tried it, but afterwards it wouldn't start up! I would love some help getting it to start up. :?:

Can you get a log of the failure?

Recent versions of sugar have a "Log activity" for this.

I used it in 802, but I just downgraded to 767 and it works now.
