Next up in my Winlink exploration is to get the sysop software running under linux.
I downloaded the latest and greatest, RMS Trimode 188.8.131.52 Full install.zip, unzipped and tried to install with, wine setup.exe. The first thing it tried to do was install .NET 4.0. Rather than let it screw up my carefully installed Wine configuration I opted to use winetricks again.
$ ./winetricks dotnet40
Success! .NET 4.0 installed without issues (excepting the usual warnings about .NET 4.0 not fully working yet – pffft)
$ wine RMS\ Link\ Test.exe
So far so good, although, this is what was working in my chooked install previously.
I have no idea what to do with RMS Trimode, however, it installs and runs beautifully.
$ unzip ../RMS_Relay_full_installation_2-2-10-0.zip
inflating: RMS Relay Setup.msi
$ msiexec -i RMS\ Relay\ Setup.msi
That’s the easy part
$ wine RMS\ Relay.exe
But alas, I am not a sysop so I cannot go any further. However, this installation seems the most complete, and stable. I suspect if I get my HF station up and running with sysop credentials access it should work without any issues.
