Specialised Scripts

04 Oct

G’day,

Just completed and tested the Graphics Card installer for ATI and Nvidia Drivers. Appears to work fine. Similar to Newyearpup, the packages are in the file system. The script also has an active help function to ensure that their computers Video Card is supported by these packages.

Why not have this as a download?

This Operating System in some circumstances will be a stand-alone system with limited or no internet (kids computers, needy families, remote locality). Being able to install these drivers without an internet connection will be a terrific advantage for some.

I have also written a script to regress or progress Wine. Most Linux users know that some Windows applications work superbly on some versions of Wine, and yet other it’ll error out. So this will allow a little wiggle room to find the correct version of Wine. Internet connection is essential as this is a download, as reference to WineHQ is important to find the best version. To date I haven’t activated the help function for this. Version 1.1.43 is installed and it seems a generally good and stable version for most Windows application (eg: Office 2003).  NOTE: MD5 Sum is checked and verified.

This all would have been done sooner, if I could write scripts – lots of hit and miss.

Cheers

Martin
