I am trying to evaluate CrossOver Linux on a new Raspberry Pi 3 (64-bit) running Raspbian 8.0. During the install I get an error message about libc6. After a bit of checking I found an article that indicated I needed to install libc6-i386. However, this package does not seem to exist. Is there something newer that I should be using?
Darn - completely missed that part. Eventually my intent is to be running on an X86 architecture but before I commit my development system to Linux rather than Windows I want to be able to verify that the tools I will need can be run. Looks like I may have to invest in a cheap X86 system for further evaluation.
If you already have a Windows box you may have decent luck installing some Linux flavor in a VM on that box and trying CrossOver from there (I don't use Windows so I don't have a pointer to which VM might be a good one). It may still be slow, but likely usable enough for some evaluation.
Forget gaming with virtualbox, as it still doesn't offer much in that area. But for anything else, it should run pretty much every distro out there with a decent speed. It will never be as fast as on bare metal, but fast enough to get a really good idea of how things work. That includes running work like applications. If you keep in mind the slight slowdown that VMs cause, it should be fine to test Crossover on Virtualbox with the any distro.
Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
