    Red face How did wine get this far?

    It official, wine rules. After a lot of media attention for the new web 2.0 browser flock a decided to take it for a spin. As a matter of fact I am creating this thread using Flock on SuSE 11 KDE 4.1.

    But not the linux download. I tried, but got discouraged by the following message after downloading, unpacking and trying it to start....
    Code:
    ./flock-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    So I boldly took the change and just clicked on this little flag representing the Redmond (windows) version. After downloading the slightly bigger windows version a popup followed, after that a installation wizard. It suggested to make desktop and menu entry's and it did.

    This is not the fist app that I found, installs better in wine than plain linux. Have you ever tried to install mplayer without the packman repositories? I did and it took me several hours whereas installing the windows binary takes about 5 minutes. True, cutting and pasting is a bit more difficult and some fonts are not as fancy as in the Linux versions but at least wine gives me the opportunity to test some software without hours of dependency checking.

    I use the OpenSuse repositories for almost all my software. I can't remember the last time I had trouble installing a program due to dependency issues, it has been a while

    Wine has come a long way though in the last few years

    zypper in compat-libstdc++

    And your Linux flock works fine. (Takes about 2 seconds to install on 11.0 - far cry from those 'hours')

    All you need is "compat-libstdc++" package from "OSS" repository.

    wow, this
    Code:
    sudo zypper in compat-libstdc++
    actually does work. The guy's at Flock need to know about this. Thanx.

    Now I'll try to find out and understand how I can figured out which compat I need to install next time an install fails.

    i also installed flock on a pure linux machine with no problems at all...i did
    it so i could figure out how to help a newer to linux user in one of these suse
    fora to get his/hers installed..

    i really didn't like it a lot better than firefox (flock is just a customized
    FF) so deleted it, but i think the other user got hers/his installed using my
    postings....perhaps you can search for that thread and get yours going without
    wine also..

    NOT, that using wine is a bad thing....just in the flock example it is not
    necessary since flock IS opensource..
