Ubuntu 8.04 LTS + Wine 1.1.5 + Newsbin Pro 5.42 = trouble

While it isn't officially supported, we have many users who successfully run NewsBin under Linux with a Windows emulator (Wine is the most popular). This forum exists for you Linux guys to share your experience getting NewsBin running on Linux as well as report any strangeness that we may or may not be able to fix. DThor is the resident expert.

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS + Wine 1.1.5 + Newsbin Pro 5.42 = trouble

Postby cruiserandmax » Wed Sep 24, 2008 3:23 am

I was previouslyrunning Ubuntu 7.04 with an old version of wine (0.7x), and tried installing the newsbin pro 5.42. It installed and ran, but would freeze unpredictably forcing me to kill it...

I figured it was time to overhaul my system anyway, so I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, and wine 1.1.5, which all went fine. However installing newsbin 5.42 is resulting in the same behavior- it runs, but freezes after it's been open for a while (a minute or two).. Before it freezes I can interact with all the windows of the application, download headers, files, and basically do everything normally. I just can't figure out what is causing it to crash?

My hardware is a VIA CN700 based motherboard with built-in everything that seems very stable with ubuntu. The only funny bit is the integrated (unichrome) graphics hadrware, which I had to did to find drivers (from VIA) that got it to work..

Is anyone using a combination anywhere near this with success:
Ubuntu 8.04, wine 1.1.5, newsbin 5.42 ?

Any messages in the shell when NB freezes? Definitely test it this way(wine nbpro.exe), if you use a desktop icon, you won't get this feedback.

does it make any difference if you don't display the download tab, say just the status tab instead. Also, just like it was on Windows - nothing interesting in the status tab?

The download tab, although quirky in how it updates it's progress bars, doesn't seem to cause any trouble as far as basic execution of the program. However switching to the "Files" tab does cause the program to freeze immediately (I just found that out this morning).

I was running everything from an icon, so I'll try running from a shell tonight so there's feeback and report back..

I really appreciate your response!
Thanks..

Ok, I've captured the output from the shell when it crashes. It seems to be memory management related. Also it appears some dependency between processes is causing the crash to never finish crashing! It's kin of long:

I'd delete/move all the DB3 files out of the data folder and see what happens.
