[nbos] FM8 under linux with wine Questions
al
Fri Jul 27th, 2007
I have been using FM7 under wine for some time and was excited to see it
move to 8 and incorporate the CUSAC... so I rushed in and upgraded.

FM7 worked well in wine. (except that fonts need registry file changes
to work and the pattern fill was a flop)

When FM8 is started (on a wine installation that FM7 is functioning on)
A few error messages pop up. (from wine)

"Access violation at address 0053A794 in module 'Mapper8.exe'. Read of
address 0000000C."

"Access violation at address 00601840 in module 'Mapper8.exe'. Write of
address 00000020."

It loads much of the interface but hangs on an external error message
while generating the second warning above. At the console wine gives
the following message:

fixme:gdiplus:GdiplusStartup Unimplemented for non-default
GdiplusStartupInput
wine: Call from 0x7b844210 to unimplemented function
gdiplus.dll.GdipSetPageUnit, aborting

Killed

So aside from a few minor dll calls it seems perilously close to working
in Linux under Wine as well. Has anyone figured out what kind of DLL
magic would be required to get this working under Linux (aside from
running it in virtualzation which costs more than FM8 is worth)
