Default BB simulator on Linux (working!)

Please Login to Remove!

Apologies if this is old news. It seems that the BB simulator now runs on Crossover Linux Pro, a commercial Wine variant:

www dot codeweavers dot com slash products slash cxlinux

It might be possible now to get a fully Linux dev setup going. I've only tested the 8800 in 4.2.1 so far, and have not linked it to a debugger yet, but the initial signs are positive. Is anyone else interested in this?

Hi Tim. I have my full 4.2.1 development environment running in Linux using Eclipse and Wine. It was a pain in the ass to setup. The only thing I'm worried about is that I had to use rapc from the Sun J2ME developer kit, and RIM's rapc actually does some custom stuff that Sun's doesn't. So I could be missing out on important features there.

Have you done any more work on this since your initial post?
