A few people know that I've been looking and tring to get turbo lister to work under linux and wine - I guess a lot of people have been - I've made some progress, and wanted to document and let others know - What I've done, and what happends, now it might be upto someone smarter then me to figure out more!
When I frist started to install Turbo Lister I was given the error that Internet explorer was not installed -- So I stopped messing around, and went back to using TL on my Win 9x machine.... not really what I wanted to do...but -- late last night I was talking to a buddy of mine and he said have you tried to install IE5 under wine? Never thought about doing that, but hey it couldn't hurt right.
I went off and downloaded IE6 from the microsoft site - and it did install, It didn't work, but it installed... (I really don't care if it works or not) - BUT Turbo Lister did install. (Still did not run, but at least it installed!)
I checked the install log, and the TL run log, and found that not all of the DLL files had copied. Into the file system -- I did a search on my win machine and found all but one of the DLL files (Now the question is why does TL run on my win machine if I'm missing a DLL on it??? Oh well, I don't care)
The DLL files that were missing from the install:
msxml4.dll (Had to download this from a site on the net, do a google search it's all over the place)
All of the above needed to be copied to .wine/drive_c/windows/system32
2 files needed to copied to .wine/drive_c/program files/Common Files/System/OLE DB/
They are: Oledb32.dll and Oledb32r.dll
after I copied those files, TL did try and start - but exited just after the inital start (the loading box, that looks likes it's opening files)
So I did some check searching on google and found someone who meantioned something about coping all of the TL files from his Win machine, and getting TL to start, but exit -
I tried that - copied all of the file from program files/ebay/turbo lister2 -
If I use the TL icon that is on the desktop, TL still exits -- but loads, you get a quick splash of the TL window. -- IF I go into the WINE Program Files/ebay and double click on TL.exe - It usually doesn't exit, and lets me select a user -- but then hangs and locks up the TL window!
(This is the part where someone smarter then me can take over)
I'm wondering at this point if it might be a data-base or video error.
The TL log file isn't much help -- but now that it is in installed, I will keep playing around, someone might say something to me that I go -- ahhh....let's try that!
My Wine version 0.9.22, Ubuntu 6.10, Turbo Lister version 220.127.116.11
On my Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop (P4 2.6ghz, 256mb ram, 40gb hard drive) But I don't think that really maters.
Well - This is all I know - I'll let others think about it!
