Blog about Wine

I've started a little blog about Wine (, and post about the Applications and Games that I have got to run. With what I hope is clear and informative instructions for other to use. There are also allot of screen-shots of each step involved in the install and first run of the App or Game.

Diablo 2?... I'm impressed, last two times I tried wine I ended up frustrated, last time for example I was trying to run an application made in Visual Basic but I had many issues on the way. First I had some missing DLLs I had to search for, then there where the problems with the "registry". After I successfully opened the app It couldn't work well with sockets, it seems it lacked winsock compatibility at the time.

I hope wine evolves into a full win32 loader for Unix/Linux if it hasn't already, Gotta admit I haven't tried again for quite some time.

Great Project
I'm really impressed by this project. Being able to run a lot of different Windows programs from inside Linux has helped out quite a lot. Keep up the great work!

Not yet. There were a couple of people working on "integrating" qemu with wine so it could run. The problem is current Macs use a PowerPC architecture. wine only implements, essentially, the OS not the hardware. Next gen Macs using Intel will more than likely be able to use wine, in fact Codeweavers has already said that they intend to support OSx86 fully.

Great program worth the effort
Although it is 3am and I've been working steadily for the last 5 hours (half of which was jerking around with Cedega), I eventually got Diablo 2, it's expansion, the latest patch, and support, all running, all under the latest build of Wine (using the prebuilt Slackware package, an optimized compile comes later :) ).

Great to see the effort being put into Wine, it's a really useful piece of software and was fun to learn about (especially with the extensive documentation). If you dual boot, try migrating over some Windows apps, I know I'll be booting into my Windows install about 90% less now.

Keep up the good work!
