Re: [vox] Internet Exploder install

Of course after posting my question, I couldn't wait for feedback, so I
installed the latest Wine (slightly different than the Ubuntu
instructions than on tatanka.com.br , applied to hardy).


Then I installed cabextract

sudo apt-get install wine cabextract

Then I downloaded the latest of ies4linux

wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz

Untarred it and ran it.

tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*

It worked! Only thing I noticed is that wineserver sucked up all my cpu.
I had to kill -9 it. Otherwise it does seem to work.
