Elo, I use crossover on my Linux computer because it's better than wine!

One month ago a install the osx (native) and install "WineHelper" but my windobe app are ugly!

My idea; install crossover pro on my osx via X11! Great?!

But. if i was so easy.... This is my problem:


@@ x86Mac:~/Desktop admin$ ./install-crossover-pro-4.2.sh
@@ Verifying archive integrity...OK
@@ Uncompressing CrossOver Office Professional....................................................................

You need the source. It has to be recompiled to fit the Darwin kernel. Darwin is not Linux.

Codeweavers has announced that they would develop for Mac-x86, so expect it to be available sometimes in 2006.

wow...this is great news. Pretty soon I should be able to expand my 20 gb OS X install to fill up the remaining 20 gb and run a proper 40 gb OS X partition on my PC! No more MS!!!!!! :-D

No way, you can't launch a linux app in OSX. Crossover Office is not free like Wine so you can't compile the sources yourself. You just have to wait if this company will port the application to Intel Macs.
At least try darwine for OSX86 (the wine port for OSX86):

Many windows apps are running with it on OSX86

No; it'll be compiled for a later OSx86 build, so you won't be able to run it with your current install.
