WinMX on wine?

Has anybody managed to get winmx3.31 working on the latest version of wine (20030911)? It seems to install ok, but has a habit of crashing every 3 minutes or so.

I tried and tried without any success. Eventually I installed an older version 20030219, and it works perfectly, without any additions of dll's or any fancy settings. It just installed and run. The only thing I did was to edit the config file to run as win98 before installing it.

Just curious, thanks

ok well my only question is, where are you getting at with this? you say you have it working? so i am not sure what the problem is...and in any case, i would recommend you get a linux p2p client, as there is hundreds available, and it will save the head thrashing of getting windows p2p apps running in wine...
and if your questions lies in the fact that you did the exact same thing for two different versions of wine, and it only worked on one version, well i have no answer for you...cause as you see here there are no special steps to getting winmx working...
