View Full Version : WINE for AOL 8.0 Plus?

08-04-2003, 02:04 PM
Howdy Gang,

Complete noob here. Installed Red Hat 9.0 the other day. Still learning my way around.

Question I have is: Is there a windows emulator out there that I can use to run AOL under Red Hat 9.0??

If so, where the heck is it and how do I install it?

Dont know about AOL running in Linux.. (didnt think anyone still used AOL! )

Easier than to use emulator is crossover read about / try it here..


Otherwise it may be easier to use VMware & run windows in a VMware app :p

Good luck!

Thanks, link doesn't work. EDIT: Got it to work. You have one too many / in the address. Anyway, that plugin apparently supports lots of programs, but not AOL.

I'm just about to upgrade to broadband, but thought I would muck around with trying to get AOL to run under Linux, just for grins and giggles.

Any other ideas, peoples?

You could try shooting yourself in the foot just for giggles:eek:
That seems about as much use as running AOL with linux, though I suppose it may be possible to learn something. What that might be is beyond me.

You might want to look here (http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialAOL.html) this may help you out. I'm not sure if ths is what you are looking for I haven't had time to read it or check it out myself.

Holy crap, Set, looks like that's just what I need. Thanks a million. :)

As for your suggestion, pave, um, err, I don't think I want to shoot myself in the foot.

Here we go again with people dissing AOL. Ya know, I've been using them for over seven years and never ever had a problem that wasn't of my own doing. I wish people would lighten up on AOL. They're nothing but as ISP to me, I don't use their browser. They also have some good stuff like popup controls, email virus checking, etc. in the latest version.

But with that said, I am planning to go with broadband real soon. Just need to get all my home machines networked together first.

Anyways, thanks again, Set.

I agree BB AOL rocks! hehe...

Problems I've encountered were mostly my doing also...except for a modem detection problem early on...

I also use a different broswer...however, I rotate between the two to do Google searches...
