Anybody have any luck with a Linux port or installing Moray 3.5 on linux?
I've done some debugging on it and the Moray executable crashes during the
loading of the /plugins directory.  I didn't have much time to mess around
with it but it seems like a good project to pick up while learning about
debugging.  I'm not looking for help but I would like to know if this has
been done so I don't re-invent the wheel.  If you are curious I can send
you some pages of debugging info later (I'm not at my development machine
at the moment).

Yes, I'm aware of that.  But the ability to run windows programs on linux is
getting better with the wine project www.winehq.org.  Someday it will
support MFC enough to run Moray without modification.  But at least right
now I have IE6 and Office XP working on the Fedora 64 desktop :D

Yeah - I've thought about running Moray on wine myself - I was thinking
more about the part of your question about it being ported to Linux...

I'd love it if it was - but understand their reasons for not doing it.

I installed qemu using these instructions:
http://turinglabs.com/gl/article.php?story=20050511201732846&mode=print

It can emulate Linux, Mac, Windows, even old DOS games, ones that require
you to boot to the CD or floppy.  Basically, you boot some images in a
window like this:

qemu -boot c -cdrom WinSetupCD.iso -hda MyNewWin.img -smb qemu -pci -m 256

You will of course have to create your own .iso images using
legally-obtained CDs.  It's a good way to learn networking, as you will
have to set up your own smb or ftp server.  And, if you want internet
access, a NAT gateway.

Seems like a lot of work but it is the cheapest way I know of can run Moray
on Linux.

Cool, I've been toying around with installing qemu, maybe I ought to
resurrect that project on my list. :-)

* The new qemu doesn't require any network setup.  It just works.
* I use raw images which are compressed automatically on ext3 filesystems.
* Raw images can be mounted for easy copying back and forth.

But Moray is kind of slow under qemu without any opengl acceleration.

I finally got Moray to work under the latest wine version!

The trick was to use a managed window.  Everything works except the lua
scripting plugin and 3D text.  Also, the toolbars aren't redrawn properly
and the opengl windows are misplaced.  A wine bug report probably needs
submitted (What? Wine has bugs?)

Very cool, I need to play with the new qemu it looks like.
