MACOS Wine (The Dude, Winbox)

Tue Nov 04, 2014 2:59 pm

I have question.

I know that lot of mikrotik users have MAC OS.

very often i have problem. the dude and inbox hangs and i cannot close it, only thing i can do is go to wine menu and close application from there.


I want to ask, is there any chance to solve this problem? I mean maybe i need to configure wine or can i use other app for running dude and inbox?

Thank you

I don't use Wine separately, I use Winbox compiled into an app with Wine bottler. It is similar, but works better for me

using "wine bottler" you have wine version that you know is working for you and will not change during updates etc. So your app will work in a predictable manner.

This takes up more storage than setting up wine and using one wine installation to run them all however when one app requires different wine version for it to run other apps will not brake.

I'm successfully using http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/ for Winbox, Btest and Netinstall.
