View Full Version : First crash under WINE.

I was doing something that I know better than doing. I was processing a CAD model from the file server (Ubuntu 32/GNOME + WINE) at work. A proven no-no with Windows. There is no such thing as a 100% stable CAD system that I've ever seen. They all crash, it's just a matter of how often.

5 people had one or more files open and BOOM! CADKEY crashed. WINE gave me a polite error message, and Ubuntu kept running. No files lost except what I was working on, nothing skipped a beat. I relaunched CADKEY, and it came up fine.

But... I won't do that again. It's just that it was running so well, that I forgot other people were using the computer. So up on the shelf it goes where I won't be tempted again.

Wine crashes and takes down my X quite often actually. However it is predictable, and I have a lot of faith in Wine. Though granted I only use it on request from friends to join in game matches or help them with a project on windows software.
