I'm trying to get as much working as possible as quickly as possible. Your continued feedback below would be greatly appreciated. I try to use Linux whenever possible and there are occasionally Windows-only packages that I need to use and I refuse to boot into Windows. In fact, most of the PCs I own don't even have Windows installed on them at all.
However to get Suunto Dive Manager you do have to do a few little
things to make it work. In this case I used version 1.4
which is what came
on the CD with my Mosquito. I found a newer version on Suunto's website
but I have not yet managed to get that version to work.
# yum -y install wineOnce you have that insert the CD that came with your dive computer. In my case I have the Suunto Mosquito and it came with a CD that comes with product info and the dive manager. Once mounted locate the file SUUNTO.exe and run it with wine:
$ cd /media/suunto $ wine SUUNTO.exeYou'll get a scren showing you the options. Just click on "DIVE MANAGER" and follow the prompts to install it.
Now you need to put in a special symlink to tell wine which COM port is attached to which serial line. Here is an example, adjust to suit your configuration:
$ cd ~/.wine/dosdevices $ ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1The next problem is that by default serial ports in Linux are owned by some system user and usually does not allow access by regular users. Become root and change the ownership of the serial port to yourself.
# chown `id -u -n` /dev/ttyUSB0
$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/SDM/sdm.exeand the program should start right up!!!
