Re: Music player

You would use Etcher or similar to create the SD as this includes the operating system as well as all the programs. This is not Raspbian but a slightly different version of Linux and the SD card would be dedicated to this task. Note: This will delete everything off that SD card. Do you know of an a...

I would recommend piCorePlayer, which wraps piCore linux, Logitech Media Server, Squeezelite, etc. in an easy to live with package. Excellent support for the Pi platform and available audio HATs. https://www.picoreplayer.org If you target using a Pi 4, you need a beta release. Thanks how would I in...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Only other thing I can come up with is for you to try changing the user agent identity and try and fool it into thinking you have the ‘correct’ browser loaded. IE 9 had Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0) as it’s agent string. See here for lots of examples. Of cou...

It’s not unusual to demand a specific browser in niche programs.

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Looks like their website is configured stupidly. It looks like they're looking for a very specific external viewer, which is ridiculous, .SVGs render fine in anything. Looks like you have to trick the site into thinking the browser is IE, and once you've done that, it checks to see if the external ...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Let's try a different approach. It looks like your end goal is to be able to run "SVG viewer 3.0.exe"...right? Running this through WINE or some other emulator isn't the right way to go about it, even if the Pi could run it. If you could get it working, the performance is often very poor, even on h...

The first requires you to build the kernel etc from scratch and even then Any Windows program you want to use on the Raspberry Pi will have to be compiled for ARM I’ve never seen an I.E. compiled for Arm BUT I’m more a Mac user. The second dates from 2006 and the software host site reports A databa...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Wine will not run on ARM machines - it’s x86 code only. Eltechs / Exagear is no longer in business and their software required a license code to run old site (possibly dead) Any x86 emulator would be so slow for Explorer that it would be horrible to use. ok so the other 2 links i posted arent optio...
