Hi everyone,

I try to run mirc 6.35 and 7.19, with wine 1.2 and 1.3.19 on ubuntu 10.04 / gnome.

Every time i receive a private query in a window which doesn't have focus, mirc crash, and it's the same when someone write a word in my highhlight list...

is there a tip to avoid this ?

thanks

Check the wine website.
I have been able to run mIRC 6.35 without the bugs you mentioned, but used winetricks to grab a few things...

riched20 is probably the most important (again, via winetricks) as having it prevents various crashes.
I'd also recommend allfonts and wsh56

mIRC works fine under wine, especially 7.x which added specific compatibility fixes to deal with wine.
