    Angry [wine-1.3.31] How to install iTunes? (I only get FAILS all the time!!)


    I need you help, I WANT TO INSTALL ITUNES BUT IT DOESN'T WORK!
    But I need it.

    Why?
    I will describe it with 2 easy words: iTunes Store

    Please!
    I want to access the iTunes Store and purchase music.

    What I can do?
    Apple suc*s, because they don't provide any fuc*ing app for Linux user to access that fu**ing Store!
    It would be a good idea to release an iTunes Store Client for Linux!!

    What most people do is to install wine first. Wine is a pseudo-windows interface that runs under Linux. You can install it using your distribution's package manager, then install the Windows version of iTunes over it.

    If you google "Linux iTunes", you'll find several threads on how to do it. It's always worth googling first!

    hmmm... wine is already installed since months
    i can't install itunes
    the main error is that i can't install msi packages
    wine fails at msi execution

    EDIT: i did it, i finally did it
    via PlayOnLinux (playonlinux.com) i was finally able to install iTunes 7

    and the only one feature i need the store works
    but it is very very slow, to slow to be!!
    like 1kb/sec
