    WINE in linux

    Looks like Ziggurat was right, the questions wont stop!

    I downloaded this program called WINE in synaptic for my Fedora system. It appears that this allows you to run some windows applications under linux.

    Well its all downloaded and installed....so how do i use it? Theres no actual application i see or anything. And if i do a search for WINE all i get is a shell script. Can somebody assist me?
    I just want to run a few windows programs, i NEED to run a few windows programs. ANd if i cant get them to run under linux, im afraid i will have to make a dual boot.

    Besides WINE. Does anybody know if ANY possible way i can run some windows programs under linux?
    AutoCAD and photoshop are the primary ones.
    Although my motherboard came with a program that helps monitor system temperatures and overclock that would be nice to install, but its not necessary

    You can't overclock in the bios?

    Have you found this yet. A google specific linux search engine.

    http://www.google.ca/linux

    Not much help beyond that, its been a long time since I have touched wine, and I remember consistently being disapointed by its performance.

    overclock in BIOS? Whats that have to do with anything?
    WINE was dissapointing ? It sounds then like i might be better off getting a dual boot with windows just for those two applications

    I will search that google though, thanks.

    You said, you had software to overclock the pc correct? Shouldn't you also be able to do this in the bios as well? I am not up to date on newer mother boards outside the server realm anymore but traditionally you would do your overclocking on the motherboard it self OR in the bios. Software wasn't "required"...

    You can run VMWare Workstation for Linux which is a virtual PC application from which you can install and run Windows. Using VMWare you can fairly easily run Windows within Linux, and vice-versa.

    From what I see, WINE won't run Windows apps consistently since it's based on Linux code that emulates the Windows OS. VMWare, on the other hand, emulates only your hardware so you're free to install and run any OS that's compatible with your hardware.

    Oh yea, overclocking. Well i can do this from the BIOS but i would rather be able to do it right from my current state instead of bios.

    Software overclocking programs are for massive noobs. The only thing they do is bump up the FSB. You have zero control over anything else that you would actually need to overclock properly.

    Learn to overclock.

    eh, its just not worth me paying anything for this ability. Because for the cost, i might as hell make time to do a configure a dual boot, using the windows CD i've already got.

    - don't use Software from Satan™!!! you will lose your soul and your first child!

    - wine has many command-line options... you can start apps directly from the command line, but the syntax (admittedly obtuse) can be challenging... see:

    http://www.winehq.com/

    - that said, the Xandros distro (and others) comes with a codeweavers-enhanced wine install (and works well)...

    - the point is to eventually fully wean oneself off of the Prince of Darkness™ software ...

    - good luck, God Bless, and a Happy New Year to you and all yours...
