I'm trying to get wine to run an application under FreeBSD that I've been told works great using wine under Linux ... the more I'm trying to dig into this, the more stuck in mud I'm feeling ... the latest release of wine won't even run on FreeBSD without crashing ... According to the Wine folks, its a "problem in FreeBSD" ... the problem is that I don't know enough about it to know if that's just a cop-out, or is Wine really "too linux-y" to run under FreeBSD? One of the bug reports on their web site: <http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5732> talks about: "This problem is caused by FreeBSD itself: - - 2/2 GB memory split - - Use of lover addresses for system libraries. Neither of this is fixable in Wine. Wine tries to reserve most of the lover 2GB with wine-preloader. But that doesn't work if glibc & friends are already there." I've tried to run this application with wine on both 6-STABLE and 7-CURRENT, and both seem to have the same issue, so it doesn't appear to be something with just 6.x ... I'm just not sure how to attack this one, when the app developer themselves are saying its an OS issue ... - ---- Marc G. Fournier Hub.Org Networking Services (http://www.hub.org) Email .
