Wine compatibility

Post by Very Anonymous » Sun Sep 14, 2014 1:03 pm

Hi!

Currently R-Studio Undelete crashes under Wine (ostensibly trying to get direct access to partitions).

Please, if it's not too difficult/not too time consuming, make it compatible with Wine.

Actually, I guess, it's pretty easy to accomplish,

if (ntdll exports the function wine_get_version) {
directIO=false;
} else {
directIO=true;
}

Then later in the code, run directIO routines only if directIO is true.

If you are curious as to why Linux/Wine users might need it, it's because R-Studio Undelete can open drive images and it's very easy in Linux (/dev/sd* /dev/md* devices).

Thank you.

As I understand, you're talking about R-Undelete. But there's our free program R-Linux that also can create/open R-Drive Image images.

R-Linux supports few filesystems and it's rarely updated.

Please, make R-Studio Undelete compatible with Wine - it's quite easy really.

R-Undelete doesn't support Linux file systems, I see no reasons to use it on Linux machines.

If an user has one Win computer (a) and one Linux computer (b) -- isn't it a right decision to attach disk (a) with just-erased-my-precious-data to computer (b) rather than install something on that (a) -- especially if it takes just two code lines?
