Wine: This May Help



I have never had much luck with Wine and I have found Crossover Office
to be - well - ponderous and I found sidenet to be "iffy."

That said, I have had an outstanding result with winetools. IE6
installed and runs flawlessly along with all the necessary plugins
including java and WMP. There are a host of other applications supported
as well.

The TRICK is to use an older version of wine. Of course, YMMV. Also, I
think that the winetools scripts created an alsa problem (which I fixed
by reinstalling alsa-libs). 

I tried the older wine source but it would not compile (possibly a GCC4
problem).

Winetools is here:
http://ds80-237-203-29.dedicated.hosteurope.de/wt/winetools-2.1.2-jo.i386.rpm

The 20050111 rpm (works for me in FC4) is here:
http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/redhat/en/i386/fc3/RPMS.newrpms/wine-0.20050111-1.rhfc3.nr.i386.rpm

Once installed, it reminded me of exactly why I prefer FC. However,
there is the occasional web site that insists on IE with WMP and this
meets the challenge.
