Updated:        2016-10-08 Wine Version: 1.9.20-staging Using my SEO to get the message out. I admit, I play World of Tanks and I play it on Linux with Wine (PlayonLinux).

Using it now for more than a week without any issues anymore. This bothered me for quite some while now. As mentioned before there is no native client GUI for XenServer on Linux. XOA is nice as an appliance, but if that appliance either  doesn’t start or you need some features that are not in there you are either stuck to the command line or to XenCenter on Windows. I spend some time now to get it running under wine, and here is the howto. You need PlayonLinux for this. You could either install the maintainer version or download the latest and greatest version from their webpage and install it. apt-get install playonlinux Once opening Play on Linux you can install under Tools – Manage Wine Version the […]
