18 April 2009 - 21:39Installing IE6 on to Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 with ies4linux

I’m pleased to say that my earlier post on Installing IE6 on Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10) needs only a minor modification to work with Jaunty 9.04.

For Jaunty you just need to replace any references to ‘edgy’ with ‘jaunty’ on the ies4linux Ubuntu install page.

The ./ies4linux installer took 15 minutes to complete under VirtualBox (I was running Jaunty Release Candidate for a preview) – slow but…it worked.  Given that IE6 is over 10 years old, this is rather impressive.

Too see wine in action running Internet Explorer 6 on the Jaunty RC, watch this screencast of ie6update that I recorded last night in ProCasts:
