I'm running potato, and I'm having problems installing the
evaluation version. First, the quickdownload.sh downloaded an
rpm package and not a deb. But since I'm not using slink (and I
assume the deb would be for Corel), I simply ran alien on the rpm
package to get a deb out of it.
But running the install script fails:
# sh install-win4lin.sh
/bin/sh is needed by Win4Lin-4.9.2k.eval-1
The Win4Lin package install failed.
Of course, I have /bin/sh (I even removed the soft link and
copied over a real binary to it). I can't find where it's
testing this in the script so far.
Did you get it to work under slink or potato?
