winbox.exe & wine-0.9.25

Mon Nov 20, 2006 1:11 am

Hi!

OK! I am using Slackware 11.0 Everything worked just fine with wine-0.9.23. Upgraded to wine-0.9.25 ... and since then winbox.exe freezes... Sometimes it continues to run after a minute or two... but usually I have to terminate the window...
I know, I could just downgrade to 0.9.23... but I'm curious... has anyone had an experience like this...?

I just installed FC6 and did "yum install wine". It freezes on winbox too. Is there an easy way to downgrade wine?

OK guys!

Now, I know, I'm not alone with this problem... Is there a solution? There are some windows programs that can be run only with the new wine releases...
On the other hand... are we on the wrong forum? Should not we try to post these questions to the wine community as well, since nobody knows the answer from MikroTik...? :?

Perhaps they could just leak a new version of Winbox now unless its the plugins messing up?

winbox itself is just a loader, all the files are inside routeros.
edit: it's not `messing it up`, it's a wine bug. we just made a workaround.

Eh, but WinBox has version numbers and has (as memory serves) never been posted as an upgrade or changelog. In some past versions at least, the new features were not avalable unless the loader is updated.

Is this workaround available? I'm using the 2.2.10 winbox.exe with MT 2.9.38 and it's freezing under wine 0.9.24 and 0.9.27... Would really like to be able to get back to a useable winbox under wine.. ssh interface is sometimes slow to traverse...

Try version 2.9.39 when it is released
