Unhappy Rosetta Stone 1.7.x crashes in Wine; mic doesn't work


Hi,

I installed TRS mostly successfully (sometimes the installer crashed, too), but sometimes it works for a while, and sometimes it keeps crashing. It does not crash on any particular lessons.

Also, the mic doesn't work, but that's of less importance right now. I just do *not* want an ISO of Win-doze taking up my hard disk...want to move everything to Linux. FYI, the audio works in Wine, but it's soft. (Playing the same sounds with "aplay" in Slackware and "Winamp" in Wine, which I also tested, the volume is different! I don't care about Winamp...just used it for testing.)

I know version 1.7 of The Rosetta Stone is really old, but I wonder if anyone has successfully used it under Wine?

I'm Running Slackware 13.0 and details of my test are in the App Database:

look like you will have to install an older version of wine

Anyway, what version of Wine do you think will work with Rosetta Stone 1.7.x?

I don't even care about the microphone so much as the crashing.

See the second link, it's the page for 1.7. It is why I posted two links, the first is for the mic and the second 1.7.

Thanks, Elv13. I will try TRS in Wine again and run it from the console. If I get similar error messages as that person, I'll try to look for a winepulse driver.
