My son is starting to learn multiplications. I found an old CD that I had with the Timez Attack game from Brainz.
I thought I could install it via wine since I had tested that game via wine on PC-BSD and it worked fine (for the most part). I downloaded PlayonBSD from the appcafe and try to install it, and it just installed a bunch of icons that persisted even after I uninstalled the game. I went as far as sudo rm -r .wine, and when I went to the kickstarter and typed Timez the icons kept popping up.
(How much junk do those windows installers leave behind after they have been uninstalled?)
Then I thought I would just download a tech preview copy of Windows and play it on virtualbox-ose. I tried to open virtualbox by clicking on the icon, and it would not open. I typed in QTerminal sudo virtualbox and it opened, I made the Virtual Machine and loaded the tech preview .iso and it just crashed and closed.
After a few more tries with different settings I gave up.
I thought maybe I shouldn’t be using a tech preview, and maybe an official release will be better. I bought a retail version of Windows 8.1 DVD installer unopened and still in the box. Popped it in, and this time it didn’t crash and close it gave me some weird 0xx000xx must turn off computer errors and never installed. The terminal read something like incorrect sRGB and OpenSystem missing. I’m not sure about the second one because it was so fast and I couldn’t reproduce it.
At which point I vaguely remembered somebody mentioning that Virtualbox wasn’t working on TrueOS. I thought that had been fixed in the last update, but I could be wrong and it could just be fixed in Unstable. Can anyone using Unstable confirm that?
