Documentation is sparce but the sourceforge project < page > says will run under:

All POSIX (Linux/BSD/UNIX-like OSes)

Does dsl fit that description? (Sorry, recent MS Win refugee here.)

I have the Win version running on XP and would like to try it also on linux / dsl but cannot figure out how to make it go. It runs as a service under XP, how do I do similar in linux ?

Yes, it lists Linux there... you may have to check for other requirements/dependencies though.

You will have to check their docs, etc but there may be something included in the install.  Usually something may be put in /etc/init.d/ and you could call it from bootlocal.sh in DSL.

When I attemp to run the dualserver executeable, I get the following:

./dualserver: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Are these libraries available somewhere, they didn't jump out at me when I went looking in the mydsl.

Thanks again,

You'll have to download the source files for libstdc++.so.6 (google is your friend as they say) and compile it prior to compiling your other application.

This - one package depending on another package, which in turn... is part of the "fun" of linux :rock:

You might get lucky and just compile your app against libstc++.so.5 (the version in DSL) by downloading the sources and then using compile-3.3.5.uci to compile them.

If you read the documentation of those files, it says to recompile the application - which is what curaga suggested.

You could also try to get the binary from a deb (look for woody).
