HowTo: Hitleap Viewer on Linux Server (RHEL,CentOS,Fedora)

Many people believe hitleap viewer won’t work on a linux server. I will prove the opposite.
Choose CentOS ( 32bit preferred – RHEL and Fedora possible but not tested ) and let’s go..
First, we need to install a GUI. ( Graphical User Interface ) We’ll use Gnome because it’s pretty lightweight.

Connect via Putty and su to root.

yum groupinstall "X Window System" "Desktop"
yum install tigervnc-server xorg-x11-fonts-Type1

Add your VNC-User and choose a strong passphrase:

adduser hitvnc
passwd hitvnc 

Set VNC passphrase:

su hitvnc
vncpasswd

Add your user to /etc/sysconfig/vncservers:

nano /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

And Paste this to the bottom:

VNCSERVERS="1:hitvnc"
VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 1280x1024"

Restart VNC:

 
su root
service vncserver restart

Ok, Gnome and VNC are done. Next Step, latest version of Wine:

Install dependencies:

yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
yum install libX11-devel freetype-devel zlib-devel libxcb-devel

Download RPM-Package:

cd /usr/src
wget  http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine-1.7.33.tar.bz2
tar xjf wine-1.7.33.tar.bz2

Install Wine 32-Bit (tested):

cd wine-1.7.33
./configure && make && make install

Install Wine 64-Bit (not tested):

cd wine-1.7.33
./configure --enable-win64 && make && make install

Ok we’re nearly done.

Use a simple VNC Client to connect with port 5901 and download hitleap viewer. Install the .msi-File via right click and “Open with Wine Windows Program Loader”

Open “Hitleap.exe” via double click, login, start traffic exchange and you’re done.
