Talking Run KaZaA on Slackware!


Hey all,
I have figured out how to run KaZaA Lite on Slack. You need the KaZaA Lite version 2.02 from www.kazaalite.tk. I followed a tutorial at:

http://www.jbisbee.com/files/kazaa_howto.txt

The part on installing wine is not at all exhaustive - download the source from winehp.org, and follow the directions in the documentation for installing wine. It's pretty good - good enough that I got through it.

But, in the howto, he doesn't tell you the right things to put in your ~/.wine/config file. He tells you all of the windows dll's you need, but you have to reference all of them in the config file. So, add this instead of

[AppDefaults\\Kazaa.exe\\DllOverrides]
"*" = "builtin, native, so"
"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "builtin"
"shdoclc" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"
"comdlg32" = "native"

add this:

[AppDefaults\\Kazaa.exe\\DllOverrides]
"*" = "builtin, native, so"
"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "native"
"shdoclc" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"
"comdlg32" = "native"
"msvcrt" = "native"
"rasapi" = "native"
"wininet" = "native"
"urlmon" = "native"

This fix will allow you to run kazaa pretty well. You will have to get some windows 98 dll's, but just reply to this in the forum, and I'll try (if I can) to help you get them.

Another shot in the foot for MS. Finally, we can run a decent file sharing program on Gnu/Linux.

Cheers, and good luck.
Gonzo

It does seem to crash a good bit, though... Try it out, see if you find some fixable issues.

Yeah, thanks... I didn't mean to take credit for it. Just trying to share some helpful advice.
