Re: Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

Just to note, Box86 0.2.4 has been released, with many speed and stability improvements.
Also, Box64 0.1.6 (https://github.com/ptitSeb/box64), for those using a 64bits OS, that had many improvements too (games like RimWorld, Starbound or HollowKnight are playable with it).

Re: How to run the x86_64 build of Zoom on a Raspberry Pi 400.

I have found the issue and pushed a fix. Update box64 and you should be good to go.

Re: How to run the x86_64 build of Zoom on a Raspberry Pi 400.

It seems there is a regression, introduce by the wrapping of gtk libs :cry: .
I'll try to fix that. In the mean time, you can continue to use x86_64 version of gtk libs by using "BOX64_NOGTK=1" env. var.

So use:

Code: Select all

BOX64_NOGTK=1 BOX64_LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./:./x64_libs ./ZoomLauncher

Re: WINE Alternative?

Okay, just finished working, so now I'm ready to try out getting WINE from WineHQ installed. But before I do, is there any way I could compile wine64 for Box64 so I can run 64-bit Windows apps as well as 32-bit ones? Use this https://www.playonlinux.com/wine/binaries/phoenicis/upstream-linux-amd64/...

Re: x86 emulator

There is only qemu-system I guess on the Pi. Sorry for me getting mad about Box86, I guess actually what I should've gotten mad about was Wine not working (because actually I've gotten a lot working in Box86, just Box86+Wine not really). You still do great work on Box86/64! It's WINE that needs mor...

Re: DirectX through Box86/Wine?

Your wineprefix may be broken. Try to start a new one (save ~/.wine and remove the folder). All Wine parameter will be lost, but may need to re-start clean.

Re: DirectX through Box86/Wine?

Wine have a internal Direct3D -> OpenGL wrapper. So yes, you need a working OpenGL driver to have DirectX/D3D games running. Also, some old games may want to use 8bits or 16bits fullscreen, that may not work fine. In that cas, use virtual desktop. On way is to go to winecfg and select it. Another w...
