RPi-QEMU-x86-wine SD-card image

Sorry, this project is inactive for now! But there are successor projects inside the Internet.

Description

This Raspberry Pi image enables you to run x86 Linux and Windows applications on a Raspberry Pi 2. The build is based on the information found in the following thread: https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=17701&start=25#p84325

Notepad Screenshot

Download

You have to download the following files and unpack these with 7zip. The reason for the split archive is that github only allows 2 GB files.

For Raspberry Pi 3 users
mikerr did a image incl. Raspberry Pi 3 support.

Installation

  • You will need a 8 GB SD-card

  • Unpack the image

  • Copy the image to a SD-card

      # sudo dd bs=4M if=20150924_RPi-QEMU-x86-wine.img /dev/mmcblk
    
  • Put the SD-card into your Raspberry Pi

Usage

Two user are available

  • Username: pi

  • Password: 123456

  • Username: root

  • Password: 123456

To run x86 Linux and Windows programs just run the "start_x86env_wine-user" script as the "pi" user in a terminal.

# sudo /home/pi/start_x86env_wine-user

Now you are in a Debian wheezy i386 enviroment and you can try to load any x86 program. Inside the chroot enviroment you are logged in as the user "wine-user".

To run Windows programs just run "wine". Notepad example:

# wine ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/notepad.exe

If you would like to use programs that need super user access like "apt-get" run the script "/home/pi/start_x86env_root" instead of "start_x86env_wine-user":

# sudo /home/pi/start_x86env_root

Included Software

Speed

Don't expect a super fast PC! The x86 emulation is done by QEMU in software. Some people said it is as fast as a 300 MHz Pentium PC. But benchmarks are welcome!
