Winbox on Apple Silicon first try

Wed Nov 25, 2020 11:19 pm

___
TLDR: Winbox 3.27 (64-bit) + CrossOver Mac = ✅
___

Hi guys,

today I tried Apple Silicon (Winbox 3.27-64bit, Big Sur 11.0.1, Rosetta + Homebrew 2.5.11 + wine64 5.7). I can run Winbox fine, but there is at least one glitch. Winbox window can't be resized. Maybe something with xquartz. There is no such glitch on Intel based Big Sur. I tried wine-stable 5.7 and wine-staging 5.7 with the same result.

~/.zshrc
# Aliases
alias intel="arch -x86_64"
alias winbox="arch -x86_64 wine64 /Applications/winbox64.exe"

# Mikrotik Winbox
export PATH="/Applications/Wine Staging.app/Contents/Resources/wine/bin:$PATH"
export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"
export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib:/opt/X11/lib:$DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH"

I suggest using web browser for Mikrotik control, or CLI (e.g. SSH) for now as workaround.

This should be addressed to Wine as well because it's more or less issue with Wine.

Good to read, which Version of Winbox (32 or 64Bit) are you running?

In case anyone is buying Crossover, CX35 coupon is currently working for Crossover One & Pro.

I am very new to homebrew and such, does anyone have any detailed steps on how to get winbox working with the homebrew option? I have home brew loaded and the winbox but I can't see to get it to run. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

I don't think homebrew option is supported on the M1 macs.

Crossover is the only reliable option right now.

The most native solution is to use the native iOS app on your M1 mac:

Just click the following link (only for M1 Macs).
https://apps.apple.com/at/app/mikrotik/ ... 64830?l=en

It is not as convenient but it is stable and you don't have to worry every time you upgrade your OS.
