How to install ie in Mac via Darwine

  1. Get the latest darwine distribution from sf, and install it. Files on sf seems differ from files on darwine homepage
  2. Get IEs4Linux
  3. Install wget, cabextract, etc. from MacPorts
  4. Run the ies4linux script. You should need to add wine path into PATH before that. The wine path should normally be: "/Applications/Darwine/Wine.bundle/Contents/bin".
  5. After ies4linux script finished, edit the generated "ie6" script, add the following line(you can also add this line into your bashrc):

    export DISPLAY=":0.0"

After that, you'll be able to use "ie6" to start-up ie 6 via Darwine. Remember to open first.

Internet Explorer 6 in Darwine

As you can see, the font is really, really ugly, and Chinese characters can't be displayed properly.
