    Well it appears to work on a basic level.

    I can create, edit and play back sequences with Adjustable Preview

    The main hang up is the plugins.
    Some work (Generic Serial, Grinch works fine)
    Some dont (Renard Modified, cannot select com port and a few other setup selctables.)

    I've not explored ALL the available Vixen commands or options, but so far it works.

    Its now time to plug in a Ren64 and see if this tranfers to the real world.

    If it does, perhaps a few sequences from various members from last year or earlier PM's to me to see what issues might arise.

    I'm especially interested in non-flattened sequences that will require additional profiles.

    Back to the shelf for this one for a few more days.. more drywalling to complete.
    Cheers!

    This is very exciting to me because when I upgraded my old 98SE system to Vix 2.1 from 2.0 the sound quit working. It still works with 2.0 and any other sound apps but not v2.1. I decided it might be time to try U9.04 (I am downloading 9.1 as I write this) and try a dual boot setup. Unfortunately during the install U9.04 had a disc read problem after the new partition was created. Also I had GoBack on this machine and it would not let me boot after that because the MBR had changed. I got instructions from Symantec and others on disabling GoBack but I still cannot boot. When I run U9.04 from CD I can see all my W98 files so they are at least intact. I am using U9.04 from CD to move what I need to a USB HD and then I will probably just make this a U9.1 machine. It is the machine I used last year for my light display and it was pretty intermittent with W98 so Ubuntu will be a nice change (I hope).

    Thanks for this great effort!

    I've been trying to convince my wife that Linux is better for years. I bought a netbook for her birthday (she wanted one) and told her Windows just wouldn't run on it. After a couple of distributions, I found a low-overhead version of Ubuntu that she likes and haven't looked back.

    To get the COM ports working under WINE you have to link the appropriate device under your dosdevices directory:

    Code:
    ln -s /dev/ttyS0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1
    The device may be different for your machine.

    Yep, I was missing the tilde symbol in my command line.

    Still a few issues with the various plugins not showing and/or allowing a selection of ports and protocols.

    I'll be able to test this tomorrow after my shift is over.

    I've begun a complete reformat of my test system with Ubuntu and will document a step by step How-To with all the addons needed.

    More to follow.

    Ok, here is what I got after doing a fresh install of wine, dotnetfx.exe, and Vixen 2.5.0.8.

    Code:
    $sh winetricks corefonts
    fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT"
    err:module:attach_process_dlls "MSVCR80.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v2.0.50727\\mscorsvw.exe" failed, status c0000142
    Cannot find cabextract.  Please install it (e.g. 'sudo apt-get install cabextract' or 'sudo yum install cabextract').
    Now, the MSVCR80.dll is already in my ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 folder. So, I installed cabextract as instructed and ran it again.

    This time, it downloaded fonts and appeared to run fine. Seemed to take forever (P3 900Mhz) but eventually finished.

    Running Vixen.exe came back with an error saying it was trying to "An application has made and attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly." Clicking OK gives "C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\msc orwks.dll could not be loaded"

    I'll rerun the winetricks with dotnet (even though I installed it manually) and report back, in case my install is bad for some reason.
