Hi to all,
I'm looking for a version of spice which runs under Linux.
I tried to use gEDA with ngspice but it doesn't work.
I've tried to use it a lot of time.
Thanks to all

Go and ask the gEDA user-group/mailing-list what you are doing wrong.
They are a smart and helpful bunch.

Just searching the mailing list might be enough to crack the problem.

LTSpice runs fine under wine.

Ngspice works fine under Suse 10.

SwitcherCAD (LT Spice) works under Wine. The developer specifically
tests this scenario, I believe.

How do you search a mailing list?

Wine, of course.

Just install wine, on this debian system I did "apt-get install wine" and
it downloaded and installed wine.

download ltspice, the url is http://ltspice.linear.com/software/swcadiii.exe

then do "wine swcadiii.exe" this will install ltspice

then do " wine 'c:\Program Files\LTC\SwCADIII\scad3.exe' " when you want to
run it - it's probably convenient to create a script or launcher that does
that to save typing.

Bye.

I downloaded the latest and greatest source, so I have:

$ wine --version

It will most likely crash. Please upgrade to a glibc with NPTL support.

Hmm - this is the first time I've tried wine --version; I don't understand
that glibc thing: I'm running Slackware 11.0;
$ uname -a Linux heartwood 2.4.33.3 #1 Fri Sep 1 01:48:52 CDT 2006 i686

it does this:

No need to compile it. Go to www.linuxpackages.net where you will find a
Slack pack for wine for slackware. This link should get you straight there.

OK, so I've done that, and I get:

Very interesting. I installed switcherCAD using an earlier version of wine
and have only just upgraded to the version I told you about. I don't
normally run it from the command line but I just tried it and I get the
same initial glibc message you did but then it runs OK. Clearly the
installer will not run at all now from your own tests. I need to look into
this further.

Right, checking on linuxpackages.net reveals that this version of wine is
meant for 2.6 kernels and the error occurs if you run with a 2.4 kernel. So
you could upgrade to a 2.6 kernel or roll back wine far enough to be 2.4
kernel compatible. I run 2.4 kernel so I have to make this decision too.Not
sure which way to go yet.

If you want to keep a 2.4 kernel try the 9.2.0 version of wine from
linuxpackages.net. This does work but has a bug with some dialog boxes -
leaves them blank. The workaround is to minimise then maximise them and the
content is restored.

looks like a slackware problem. try rebuilding glibc with those options
turned on.

Bye.
