Time for Wine
« on: March 04, 2004, 10:54:28 am »
I have successfully used FlashMagic 1.87 with linux (kernel 2.6.3)  and the
Wine application program. Wine executes a windows program in the Linux
environment. Probablly will work with Unix too. The only problem is that if
you try to read flash memory data, the bytes do not appear in the pop-up
window. I tired all kinds of different screen resolutions but still see nothing.
But if you just want to program a device then you can use Wine.

The issue I described is really a support issue for Wine, not FlashMagic.
FlashMagic operation in windows should be emulated exactly. And Wine
isn't 100%. But it's better than nothing. I appreciate the effort gone into
Wine development.
