Which Wine version are each of you running, and which kernel?

Mike

My Linux Specs;

Foresight Linux version ----> 2.0.4 (very old)
Linux Base distribution ---> rPath (a derivative of Red Hat); whilst Ubuntu is Debian (I don't like Debian)
Wine version ---> 1.1.4 (very old)
Linux Kernel ---> 2.6.26.3

Latest stable releases;

The latest Foresight Linux version ----> 2.5.0 with Kernel 2.6.35.11
The latest stable Wine release ---> 1.2.3

My kernel is 2.6.38-8-generic and the WINE is 1.3.19.

My focus is on:
1. Avoid the opening chop.
2. Honor stops
3. Ensure reward > risk on all trades

Kernel 2.5.38.8 may not be stable; the latest stable kernel is 2.6.38.6.

Wine 1.3.19 may not be stable; the latest stable release is 1.2.3.

Ubuntu 11.04 may not be stable.

I tried on my desktop which has Ubuntu 10.10. I made sure the Wine version was stable. I get the same error message. I am getting this on 2 different computers. The commonality is me. I may have made a mistake somewhere along the line (it would not be the first time), but I really suspect the issue is WINE/SC/Rithmic has an issue somewhere. I don't know what happens in SC when the order is placed, but that is when the error message pops up.

I have reached my technical expertise limits.

Interestingly, I ran into exactly your experience today when I successfully installed and ran the new MBT Desktop Pro on my Linux, however, when I submitted a Buy/Sell order, the MBT Desktop Pro just crashed but did not shutdown; it just relaunches itself. If I'm able to resolve this, it may give a lead in resolving your Ubuntu challenge. I don't have this issue with my IQFeed/SC setup.

Well, I threw in the towel (again). I removed WINE, deleted all hidden files, reloaded WINE, WINETRICKS, and then downloaded .net20, vcrun2008, and allfonts (using WINETRICKS) and then downloaded the latest Sierra Charts pre-release (707)....and guess what....it works.

Now less you think I had done something wrong (which I could have), SC support posted on their support board they had left some parameter out of the pre-release that impacted sending orders to Rithmic.

I have no idea if what I did or what SC support did fixed the issue, but I don't care. It works.

There is a viable alternative to the Windows world.

Good news



Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Now, I have an idea why my MBT Desktop Pro running on my Linux crashed on Buy/Sell Order submit; and it seems that I can't do anything about it unless MBT allows order routing on Linux. I'll contact MBT Support on the issue.

If anyone is interested in using Linux in your trading, you can get a demo of Sierra Charts with Rithmic data feed from Optimus. I am sure there are others, but I use Optimus because of the support I receive.

SierraChart Trading Platform Demo, Rithmic Connectivity, Platform for Emini S&P, $ES_F
