You need Version 6.51, 6.5 won't work.
Emerge the latest wine

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge wine

Log on as the user, you want to run Notes under.
Enter "wine" in a terminal, this will set up the ~/.wine directory

You have to install Notes on a Windows machine, because the installer doesn't work on wine. Let's assume you install it under c:\program files\lotus\notes.

Copy the lotus directory to your Gentoo machine to ~/.wine/fake_windows/Program Files

Copy mfc42.dll, mfc42u.dll, msvcrt.dll and msvcp60.dll from windows to ~/.wine/fake_windows/Windows/System

In ~/.wine/config make sure the line
"Windows" = "win98"
specifies the windows version from where you copied it over

run

wine "C:\Program Files\lotus\notes\nlnotes.exe"

Enjoy


Designer and Admin work as well, you can even edit Java Agents, compile and run them.

Does the Admin Client also work under wine?

Is it possible to use an installation of Lotus Notes from a Windows XP Workstation or must I have an Win95 / Win98 installation of Lotus Notes?
:roll:
