FS failed to start under WINE

Reported by: matjaz.valjavec@… Owned by: Øyvind Ellefsen
Priority: major Milestone: 2013
Component: FsComp Version: 1.2.5
Keywords: Unhandled Exception Cc:



bellow is a message of exception, when starting FsComp.exe on Linux, with WINE windows emulation. I assume that something is missing in the WINE installation - however I have allready installed Momo (.NET emulator) for windows. Thank you for your help.

Best regards...

Summary: FS failed to startFS failed to start under WINE


FS is a .NET application, and unfortunately .NET have some issues when running under WINE. There is really nothing we can do about this in FS.

Mono is a .NET compatible framework to run .NET applications on other platforms than Windows. As far as I know it does not need WINE, and WINE does not need Mono.

I think the easiest way out for you would be to install VMWare server in Linux, and run FS inside a Windows XP virtual machine.

Most scorers seems to stick with Windows, but a few of us like and use Linux and Mac, I have been using Linux for 12-13 years. It should be fairly easy to make FS compatible with the Mono framework, to make it multiplatform. The main challenge would be to interface with all the GPS devices under Linux. The developer of GPSDump made a Linux commandline version, but this have not been maintained or updated as he spends all his time on the Windows version.

FS will be open sourced in the future, if we are lucky someone with programming skills kan make a version that is Mono compatible (Or maybe Stein Tore will find the time to do it)

Tested FS with latest Mono, less errors than before, but still no dice. Close case for now, might look at it later when we reach 2.0 release.
