Anyone running MPT on Linux?
« on: December 25, 2006, 23:05:29 »
I would like to run MPT on DamnSmallLinux, but I'm not going to attempt it if there's no evidence that someone's got it working under some Linux-based OS. Was it easy to compile from source, which tools did you use and did you encounter any difficulties? Thanks

It won't compile with anything but VC++ so you won't get it running natively, but some people have had success running it using Wine.

I know that in the past, someone was able to get it to work through Wine.

Unfortunatelly, I don't have more info than that.

Oh OK thanks. I won't bother then - not worth it if I need WINE as well.

Yeah it'll only run under wine or cedega, if you wanted to use vst plugins then cedega works better.
Native would be cooler but I doubt it will happen.
