HMG on Linux

Post by Roberto Lopez » Sun Oct 27, 2013 8:26 pm

Hi All,

Since about one year, Linux is my main OS (I'm using now Debian 7 XFCE).

I've installed Wine and my HMG applications runs fine.

The problem is that I'm not able to compile neither from HMG-IDE or command line.

From command line (I use FAR Manager as 'IDE' for that) I'm getting multiple 'Path not found' errors.

Had someone succeed on this?

TIA.
Regards/Saludos,

Roberto

Hi Roberto

I don't know, it's related or not; no Wine nor HMG; found something like this :
...file or directory not found..
In Linux Debian Squeeze exists libmxml-dev 2.6-1, which seems to be incompatible
to mxml library used with hbmxml. If libmxml-dev is installed, mxml.h in
/usr/include is used and generates the error. Deinstalling libmxml-dev solved
the problem.
Search string is :

I guess no.

I've installed XP on virtualbox too, and (of course) there is no problem to work with HMG on it, but I prefer use Wine, since it is faster and simpler.

Thanks anyway, I'll still researching about it.
Regards/Saludos,

Roberto

OK Roberto

Anyway, reported problem was about Harbour installed on Linux, not Wine.

I wish easiness to you; sadly, I'haven't any experience on Linux :(

With my best regards :D

Hi Roberto.

Heard you are searching for something like this.

http://hmgforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2542" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The simplest way I tried.
It worked under Wine 1.5.5.
http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The way to install Wine 1.5.5 is somewhat uncomfortable.
You need to define i386 architecture
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
and install ia32-libs on amd64-Platform.

You need to alter the Build.bat under Debian - Wine 1.5.5.


For a simple try I recommend to use Puppy Precise, cause it works just fine.
I don't want you to kill a Debian installation, just to try wine 1.7.4.

https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+arc ... 4_i386.deb" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+arc ... 4_i386.deb" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
--
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+arc ... 4_i386.deb" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+arc ... 4_i386.deb" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The first two *.deb packages would be sufficient.
Try it under the live puppy distro. So
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/precis ... se-5.7.iso" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; // 170 MB and runs fully in memory.

With wine 1.7.4 under Precise Puppy you don't need to modify build.bat,
it works out of the box.

Hope it helped you for the first moment.

Simply keep in mind to install many many 32-bit libs under the amd64-Version ob Wheezy/Jessie.

Here is another possibillity to make use of wine.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic. ... 309#717309" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This thread is quite interessting,
as they compile wine from source.

It is a pity, that the debian people don't
have the latest wine's for download. :(

Sorry,

you can use

winecfg to create .wine Directory with Commandline.
winefile is to be used to browse for HMG-Installer and install.
Locate for c:\hmg.3.1.5\ide\ide and try to compile a PRG-File.

It compiles without problem under Puppy Precise.

So you have the possibillity to use the Ubuntu-i386 wine-Repo
with the newest wine.

Wow!

You've got me enough info to play with, for the entire weekend :)

I've decided in favor of Debian after years of searching.

The general opinion about Linux is that, it is fast and stable, but, in fact, there is a lot of distros (some of them very popular) that are slow and unstable :)

So, I've finally realized that Debian (stable) is the best one and I'll try to not change again.

Thnaks!
Regards/Saludos,

Roberto

Hello all,

Is there any way to install HMG as native Linux installation, as .rpm or .deb file? Without using wine.

Thanks in advance.
With best regards.
