The reason you cant find it is because you have to buy it... http://transgaming.com

cedega is winex and has been modified... you might get better results from wine instead of cedega if you are lookin to run applications aside from games. either that or use qemu and run a 98 or 2k partition.... but ^^^ is right.. it's not freely distributed... i'm sure you can find some pirated version somewhere, but that's not very nice...

You can download Cedega as CVS and compile it yourself.

I do believe transgaming offers the CVS version of Cedega for free to download, but ya you have to pay for the release versions. It's worth it for games, but for many regular applications, wine will probably be more compatible. I paid for Cedega, and it works great for games, but there are some applications I use which run in wine, but not cedega.

Cedega 4.2

Forget about buying it. One of the main resons for using Linux was to get away from all the purchasing I was doing before with Microshaft. When I first installed Mandrake I was shocked as to how much software was already on it.
I'm pretty much getting out of games and mostly concentrating on recording software so wine will probably do me just fine.
Thanks for all the input.

So you don't think programmers deserve to be paid? Cedega is a deal for what it does and what it costs. I saw where someone said that you can get it from CVS but that is not the complete code. There is some proprietary code that is left out of CVS also. It is well worth the money to buy it though.

Not sure which part of my statement translated to you that programmers didn't "deserve" to get paid.
One of the nice things about Linux has been the enormous amount of free software that is available. And when a donation is asked, I usually donate as long is it is software I continue to use. I went ahead and downloaded winex and configured it and it runs fine for what I was wanting it for. This in turn doing what I love to do...save money on software.

On 2 an actually technical aspect, I tried compiling the CVS, and whenever I try and run it I get
Code:
wine: exists lstat socket: No such file or directory
What does that mean and how do I fix it?
