Hey everyone, PCBSD 9.0 is out, and I'm happy to report that it's everything I always wished an open source OS could be.......and, MultiPar installs and runs right out of the box! How is that possible? Well, PCBSD has Wine installed and configured for you, so you can run many Windows programs from within PCBSD! AMAZING!!

Get it here:

http://www.pcbsd.org/

I found just one minor quirk when running it on PCBSD under Wine:

* When clicking on .par2 files, MultiPar will load up the directory as /home/some user/some directory/\ It's that trailing backslash that causes the problem. It reads the par2 file fine, but can't find the actual data. If the director were editable, I could just delete the trailing backslash and try again.

UPDATE: This minor quirk no longer exists. I just tested the newest 1.2.0.0 release, and it works fine now. Thanks Yutaka Sawada!

 I made MultiPar to run under a naming rule of Windows OS. (it looks quirk from other OS users) If you supply strange input, the output is something un-tested. I cannot test myself, as I am using Windows OS. In your case, sanitizing routine might work, but I am not sure. You may send or post a log of creation and verification, then I can confirm what is happen and what to do.
