A Pardus package for this is much needed by many.
"Xiphos" Homepage. http://xiphos.org/

Workable instructions for running "theWord" in Wine on Pardus would be much appreciated.
This is the version that I use and it has all my notes, etc.. I would love to just transfer them.
This has been run by others in different Linux systems but it just disappears on me after the splash screen runs. Please help!

For anyone searching for Bible software, I was able to get eSword to run in Wine on Pardus 2011.
eSword is an excellent and FREE Bible study program that equals or exceeds programs costing hundreds of dollars.
I had to copy a .dll file from Win system32 to wine system32 folder if I remember correctly before it would run right. (mfc42.dll) Below is my method of doing that.

Install "Wine" from Pardus package manager.

Then install "Winetricks" from the "non-official" repository in package manager,
In Winetricks choose "install a windows DLL or component"/OK.
Install the "vcrun6 - Visual C++ 6 sp4 libraries (this will download and install the needed mfc42.dll file)

Install eSword.
"eSword" homepage. http://www.e-sword.net/
run eSword from the Wine programs menu.

Also, to make the mouse-over pop-up work on the Strong's numbers in versions that use them I had to install a copy of msls31.dll to the eSword program folder. Winetricks has this but it did not download for me using Winetricks.
I got a copy of this .dll file online at http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/M/msls31.dll/3.10.349.0/download.html

Many thanks!

Hopefully, I've properly requested "Xiphos" for packaging, Bug #17650.
As I posted earlier, I did get eSword to run in WINE and it seems to be doing well.
