Yeah, they both had a brief spell breeding tropical birds. Alice wanted to specialise in maccaws, while iggy dabbled with crossing humming birds and flamingo's...

it's probaly not possible. that's an awful lot of microsoft you're trying to cram in. check the wine compatability database for specific info. can't remember the address winehq.com ? if in doubt, just google it.

Ok, I can understand wanting to use MSN IM in linux, but why MSN Explorer???
Why not use something like Mozilla or it's variations which is coded for linux, and doesnt require an emulator/helper app like Wine which'll just make it slower. Plus it wont have crap like the windows registry and I dunno how IE'll cope without that precious thing

Is the problem that your ISP is MSN itself, and you need MSN Explorer to get online via your modem?

If so then I rather suspect you are shafted. MSN Explorer *might* run under Wine, but Microsoft aren't known for making their software easy to Wineify.

We cannot "recompile MSN using Wine", as nothing Microsoft produces for end users is open source. You'd be better off using a real ISP that uses open protocols, and allows access using free software.

i had guessed from his first post that he read the wine
page and it talks about wine being an emulator, and
a set or libraries to compile windows apps against to
run under linux, and he didn't realize that you need the
source code to the application plus a whole bunch of
work to do that.
internet explorer can run under one of the versions of
wine, but not well, but i bet that dialer would be tough.
if msn was selling internet access for $8 a month, you
can bet somebody would get a dialer app that would
work with it in linux, but as it is, it costs a lot more for
msn than normal internet access, so nobody's willing
to bother. Look on good and search for cheap internet
access.

mmm, something smells good. wind out of the south
east. post is baking some honey something ceral.
smells great. what else is great is when they bake
those cocoa pebbles. You wouldn't think you could
smell that stuff from 5 miles away, but you can.
