Over the past few weeks, a group of have been plugging away in relative obscurity to fix the world .. or, at least, the world as revolves around WINE. We have a few kernel hackers involved, some members of the wine group, some members of PC-BSD, and at least one DragonflyBSD developer ... a truly rounded group. In order to avoid having this all mixed in, and lost, with other software discussions, the work is happening on a private list, but if anyone feels that they can contribute *programming knowledge* to the effort, email me and I'll add you to the list ... we aren't looking for testers on this list, see below about that ... To the real reason for this post, we have been slowly making headway ... If you go to: <http://wiki.freebsd.org/Wine> You will find several patches, both against FreeBSD and wine, that get the latest wine working under both 7.x and 6.x ... under 6.x, the only 'gotcha' is don't apply the signal patch yet, as it does break things ... For testing, Tijl is running 7.x and I am running 6.x ... in my case, with all patches applied, except the signal patch, I can get Freecell running ... in his case, with all patches applied, he can get MT4 running (MT4 is an online financial trading piece of software) ... For those that are interested in Wine, and are going to test the above patches, please subscribe to [EMAIL PROTECTED] by sending a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] ... it will also let us gauge how big/small the 'wine users' population happens to be ... - ---- Marc G.
