FLAC / Re: Back to the future: FLAC 1.4.2 for MS-DOS

Just for reference, Intel introduced it's Pentium before I walked this earth, so I'm not totally sure on the details.

[...] 32-bit DOS extenders to extend memory addressing AND arithmetic to 32-bit.
Well, thanks for making me feel old. A DOS extender is only necessary for 32-bit addressing; it's possible to do 32-bit arithmetic without one.

However, I didn't use this build option, so an FPU is needed, which means the i386 will need an 80387 coprocessor, as it doesn't have a built-in FPU like we are used to these days.
Somehow I forgot this when I posted earlier (must be getting old  :)) ), but DOS extenders can include FPU emulators, so you might not need a FPU.

Why don't you just try a directory that has pure audio music? To further debug the issue, I would start with
scanning small content and not your whole music collection and see if it works, then index more music etc.


I'm sure it would work with a smaller library. It can play music just fine when I manually choose files through File > Open. However I just tried this again on a fresh new 32 bit Wineprefix, and I got this error at around the same time as last time:

Do you know what any of this means? This happens closer to 15 minutes after it starts scanning. As soon as that 03a0:err:wmvcore line shows up, it's over. Georgia crashes

The laptop is a no go anyway.  The HDD is dead and it won't boot from floppy.  The only thing I have between the 286 and my K6-III+ is a Pentium 233 chip (that'll work on the same board as the K6-III+).  It's configured by jumpers so the lowest I can run it at is ~133MHz which should still be able to play Flac files just fine.
