ok, i posted this to the "off the wall" subforum, because i'm running wine on a RH-based system at work (yes, I AM trying to get portage to work!) and the thing is that i NEED to get Lotus Notes running ASAP ...with wine of course ...the problem is that wine keeps failing

ANY help would be appreciated

What version of Lotus notes are you trying to use?

1) AFAIK, crossover* isn't free
2) the guy at the office challanged me to get it working in wine :/

lotus is extremly sencitive to color dept. you might want to try and make it run in 256 colors.

also, usualy, when it just dies that way, it's because either it cannot create or does not have full access to one of the following files

desktop.dsk
cache.dsk

make sure it as read/write/execute access to the folder where you are starting the application (it doesn't have to be where it is installed)

This is something we often get where I work when the client's home drive is full to quota and they loose write acess to it.

thanks for the ideas ...i'll try it out, madchaz.

and to contribute to the problem myself: there's a web-based, crossplatform version of Lotus Notes called Lotus iNotes ...it was made for the linux platform and thus made to work perfectly with netscape/mozilla ...i hope that'll be some help to anyone.

p.s. AFAIR iNotes are already in the Domino 6 package.

how do i do that? ...the screen dept. in .wine/config doesn't want to use neither "256" nor "8" as a number.

the access is ok ...but these files are nowhere to find 8O ...help
