is there anything like rosetta (but backwards) with WINE or DARWINE uilt in?
No there is not. The only way you could possibly run a Windows app on a G4 or G5 without running Windows is to emulate x86 linux and then use wine. This option will probably be much slower than just using Virtual PC.
The PPC version of Darwine is designed to be used with an x86 emulator.
ok, now i have qemu and darwine ppc, what do i do?
again, i don't want to have to boot xp
thanks you all so much (especially vinow) for the quick and helpful responses.
Sorry but that won't happen for you yet - Darwine is currently not able to use qemu to emulate binaries. They're working on it though!
thanks for the info , but DARN!! is there anything else i can do with darwine to run real windows apps?
p.s. how, did they make those "sample winelib applications"? i wonder if i could turn a egular app into one of those.
are there any solutions like darwine+qemu, or am i just out of luck?
vinow, have you used x86 emulators with darwine successfully?
if so, which ones
THANK YOU SO MUCH
ok, time for a crazy/awesome idea. darwine runs in x11, right? why not make a version of x11 that is an emulator in itsself!?!?! Then, you can have your x86 x11 and your ppc x11
can i run darwine directly in qemu (i am actually using q, but theyr the amse thing)
