Blarg. The *ONE* windows tool I still use (Quicken) is now unavailbale to me under Phoebe.

Wine is broken,
Crossover office is broken,
VMWare Workstatiomn is broken, and

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Now sounds like a good time to switch over to gnucash ;-)

    Heh. I was going to say the very same thing… :-)

    Last I checked, gnucash was almost ready. OTOH, I need to export my old data from Quicken first – 2 or 3 years worth of finances!

    I wonder if it’ll remote display from a 7.x box w/cx….

    ISTR that Gnucash will just import Quicken files basically with no questions asked.

    But to try to get it work, you might try setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 to use old linuxthreads instead of nptl (I know that wine is threaded)

  5. alchemist says:

    gnucash will import qif files, but not the native file format used by quicken. Which means I ahve to export as QIF before I can get things into gnucash.

    The LD_ASSUME_KERNEL seems to be doing the trick for now. Thanks.
