I apologize for the vague question here I'll reiterate. I'm looking for a software program similar to one popular used by windows and and some mac users known as "Alcohol 120%" (in particular i am looking for a version if Alcohol 120% is not supported by pclinuxos yes which contains A.C.I.D. "Alcohol Cloaking Initiative for DRM") It has been a few years so i am not 100% if its popularity is still as it was or if it has been replaced by newer software. Reason i am looking for the program or more specifically one that is support by pclinuxos is i have the ISO for several games and movies i would like to watch and play. Alcohol 120% is able to create virtual drives and mount ISO images, i would like to create a virtual DVD drive that i may use with Playonlinux so that i can install the games on my system and be able to play them. I"ve tried running the program but wine had be giving me an issue with installing it i'm address that issue with wine in the mean time i had the bright idea to just ask on here what everyone else uses in a neat easy clean package and not have to to do x,y,z, and a steps and get everything working
I don't know about the games, as they are Windows games, but a movie ISO can be played directly by most of the Linux media players, as long as you have all the appropriate libdvd* packages installed.
The game .iso images can be loop mounted to any directory of your choosing from the command line. Say you create a directory, /mnt/iso
, then the command, as root
, from the directory holding the image, would be;[root@localhost ~]# mount -o loop ro ./<name>.iso /mnt/iso
Looking in the /mnt/iso
directory, you should see the application installation launcher from the .iso image, and be able to try to open/run it with wine. How well it actually works depends on wine. Some Windows games work very well, some don't work at all.
