Hello guys, I just tried to run AlamDV2 on my computer, running Linux slackware 10 on an athlon xp 1600+ (res. 1024x768 @ 32 bits) and it gave me the following error:

fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.

followed by this msgbox:

Note: the error "fixme:dialog......" is in debug mode.

Somebody can help ?

You're trying to run this on an emulator, right?

if you have windows on the machine too, i would suggest using a dual boot. (thats what i do)

I'd be suprised if you can get AlamDV to work with Wine. I do remember some people trying before, but I havent heard anyone having much success.

Obviously we don't support running AlamDV on linux/wine, so there isnt much advice we can offer. I imagine most of the problems you will encounter will be from incompatibilities in the Wine layer. The "fixme" error seems to be generated by Wine so it might be better to direct your questions to the Wine team.

the fixme error actually is generated by wine, seems to an error with a modal window/msgbox, maybe the "Run as demo/Register" dialog window, is there a way to register my copy of alamdv from an outer source ? like a .ini file or something else, just to skip that first-time-run window

Unfortunatly not. AlamDV uses quite a few of those message boxes, so even if you could get past the registration box, you'd get stuck again pretty soon after.

There are other emulators than WINE, maybe alam will work on one of those? Maybe I'll give it a try someday.
You know guys, it is really a pity linux isn't supported, since there aren't any good video editing apps for linux as far as I know, not to mention effects apps.
