I gave it a go, although it's been quite a while - more than a year I believe.

The driver interface emulation in Wine isn't on par with the native OSX/Windows drivers (of course) so that's probably the hardest thing. I might give it another go though. I have the 2.0 release since a couple of years and when I originally tried it on Linux I couldn't even install the 2.5 update through Wine (installation went OK though).

Ajjdå... Men om man skulle få det att funka, tror du att det skulle bli bra prestandamessigt då?

Tryin' Reason 2.5 On Ubuntu

First of all, I installed CodeWeavers CrossOver Office and Ubuntu Wine package. So, the first thing I done was trying to run Reason Install (Install Reason.exe, autorun.exe) and I got a lot of errors and warnings. The same thing happened with CrossoverOffice and Ubuntu's Wine.

Then I copy Reasons folder from my Windows machine (C:\Program Files\Propellerheads\Reason\) and try to run Reason.exe directly:

(((Case 1))) With CodeWeavers CrossOver Office

$ cxoffice/bin/wine --verbose /mnt/hdb1/Reason25cds/Reason/Reason.exe

First I got a lot of "missing ?.dll library", so I copied all required dll's from my Windows\system32 machine. When I'd copied all the libraries I got this ERROR (bold red font). I think it's somthing about rpcrt4.dll or ntdll.dll relative to native, built-in. I really don't understand.

$ cxoffice/bin/wine --verbose /mnt/hdb1/Reason25cds/Reason/Reason.exe

Mode = 'private, non-root'
Bottle environment variables:

(((Case 2))) With Ubuntu's Wine Package

$ wine /mnt/hdb1/Reason25cds/Reason/Reason.exe

I got a error message that says wine cannot open .tmp files for writting.
