WineX downloading trouble


Hey everyone

I know this has probably been answered before but i want to know how i can download WineX from a windows XP machine and then copy it to my linux machine.

I saw a post awhile ago about useing CVS something or other but it looked like i could only do it with Linux but only my XP machine is hooked up to the internet.

Could you please help me out? I really wanna move to linux but i must be able to play my games still.

Again sorry if this is a repeated question.

Thanks

why u cant connect to the internet on the gnu/linux system?

well if u are subscribed to transgaming, u can easily download the tar.gz file to your windows partition; u can access from linux to that partition and copy it over to ya linux partition

if u arent subscribed, u are right, u need to download the source tree over cvs. cvs for windows ->

FYI, it's now called Cedega, not WineX

I can't use my linux box coz it's at my place and the internet connection is at my parents on a win xp machine.

I'm not registered nope. The $/ZAR conversion makes it way too expensive. So i'm trying to get it for free.

Ok i've downloaded WinCVS now how do i access/ find the file i'm looking for?

So if these questions are a bit dumb, i'm very new!

first u have to login

cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login

password is cvs

then u can download the latest cvs snapshot, but i only know loading the winex tree

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

this command downloads the latest winex version; i dont know how to load the latest cedega version *confused*

if wincvs dont manage these commands, look here what to do to get the same results

The commercial version is named Cedega, the free one is still WineX.
