Wine question?


Hi all,
B4 I try installing wine, I wanna know that when it converts a dll (i.e. from Windows) to a .so file(in Linux), does that mean that so long as my original application didn't require a GUI, I can run the converted application from a non-gui in Linux?, Also is it possible to make the conversion without using Wine?, Thanks in advance, sorry for posting a similar question earlier but I figured I better try to explain my question better.

Cheers

Simbo

1) It is difficult to run non-GUI apps in wine than GUI apps.

2) Wine doesnt convert any dll to .so files (it creates it own or uses dlls as it is)

Thanks for ur quick reply, I'm sorry if i'm not getting the concept entirely, so basically even if my Visual C++ application does work in Wine, I can only use Wine to start it up?what if I want to run this application from a unix server?

Thanks again

Sim
