Guide: Soldat Admin With Linux
« on: July 16, 2006, 03:54:18 pm »
Hello all I  got very curious and bored and decided to see if the Soldat Admin12 by MM would work with linux.

I got it to work, very easily with wine.

My system specs:
- Running the latest stable version of Debian Linux (I donwloaded and isntalled from an iso yesterday)
- using the gnome desktop
- wine (Installed with the synaptic package manager that comes with Debian)
wine version: 0.020050310-1.2
I downloaded the Soldat Admin v1.2 off of soldat.pl to my win2k laptop.
Then used winzip to extract to a folder then SSHed the folder to my linux computer.

I chmod ed the folder and all of it's contents to 777.

Then went to the SoldatAdmin min folder and typed
Code: [Select]
wine SoldatAdmin.exe

It was a bit slow but works.

a couple things to note:
1) it isn't necessary to chmod 777, 755 is enough (700 is probably enough) and is more secure.
2) chrisgbk actually made a linux port of the Soldat Admin 1.2 using kylix: http://www.soldatforums.com/index.php?topic=1710.0
3) ARSSE works in wine too, and it is obviously far superior to SA1.2

I tried ARRSE with wine first but I got alot bugs.
- buttons doing nothing when clicked
- not connecting
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

add the winehq repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list and then do `apt-get update` and `apt-get dist-upgrade` to get the newest version of wine and everything else on your system.
