RIVA Client for Linux
#1
If anyone is interested in messing around with a RIVA client on Linux here's a way to get started. There is an Open Source Project called Mono. It's website is http://mono-project.com/Main_Page. You can read about Mono there, but basically you compile the RIVA .net client with the Mono Development Environment. I downloaded the Live CD version which is a Linux OS with Mono installed. It's a Live CD, so you can boot and run it from the CD. Networking is installed so you easily copy the .Net RIVA Client 1.3B1 files over to the Linux box. When I first tried to open the solution file, it said the solution was not recognized or something like that. But then if you build the FF Client, it will build with 0 errors and only 6 warnings. What you will then have is a RIVAClientFF.exe file. Run the Linux command prompt or whatever it is called. (I'm not a Linux person.) Go to the directory that the RIVAClientFF.exe file is in and type "Mono RIVAClientFF.exe". No quotes. The RIVA login utility should come up but the fields will be blank. Fill in the IP Address, not computer name, of the RIVA server, the port numbers, the user name & password and screen size. Your default template should appear.

There very well could be other and better ways to use Mono, but this did work for me with no change in Mark's RIVA code.
