I am trying to use Bluestacks for running Android application on my Linux Fedora using Wine.

I tried wine BlueStacks-SplitInstaller_native.exe from terminal. It gave me Install Mono for Windows to run .NET 2.0 ... error, so i downloaded Mono For Windows from here.

I installed the complete package [checked all boxes including GTK etc] it using

wine mono-2.10.9-gtksharp-2.12.11-win32-0.exe After the installation is done. After a while it just seemed to stop executing commands. However it did not return the prompt on terminal even after waiting for a long time,so i did Ctrl-C to get back the prompt. This showed some fixeme for the console.

Following this by,

wine BlueStacks-SplitInstaller_native.exe The bluestacks installer comes up and immediately gives the error dialog stating

Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x7de321a8 in 32-bit code (0x100035cf).

and lot other details.

The installer meanwhile continues upto 98% installation and hangs.

What step did i do wrong?

Note: If there is any other technique to get Whatsapp usable on Fedora, do let me know.
