What the crap is up with wine?!?


I am just trying to install ies4linux and all I am getting is "wine exited with a failure status of 1."

there are a batch of error logs associated with this but none of tem make sence to me... has anyone had this issue before?

please note this is an issue with DEBIAN only, I have installed fedora, suse and redhat and they all work GREAT just debian has an issue with this...

Did you follow these instructions? Do you have the latest version of Wine and cabextract? If you can answer yes to both, you'll need to post the errors you're receiving.

Cheers

Also getting error messages running ies4linux installation

Hi folks,

I've also been having a tough time getting ies4linux to install.

Ubuntu 7.10,
Code:
$ uname -a
Linux mandolin 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Fri Feb 1 04:59:50 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
When I run ./ies4linux, I get the following output (error at bottom):
Code:
IEs4Linux will:
  - Install Internet Explorers: 6.0
  - Using IE locale: EN-US
  - Install Adobe Flash 9.0
  - Install everything at: /home/vartan/.ies4linux
[ OK ]

I have the latest wine and cabextract:

[sudo] password for rhimbo

Any ideas? Many thanks in advance...

I had a similar problem trying to install ies4linux on my new eeepc. The script would hang when installing ActiveX.
This isn't really a fix (because, in the end, you don't get activex or flash installed), but it at least allowed me to get IE6 installed and running.
Basically, I just commented out the sections of the install.sh script (located in the ies4linux*/lib directory) that had to do with the ActiveX and Flash installations (it was also hanging on the latter). After I did that, the script ran just fine and IE6 now works. Not sure if you need ActiveX/Flash, but if you don't, this might work for you.
Also, I'm new to Linux, so I apologize if I am just stating the obvious.

cheers!

I was really hoping IcoNyx would give us some feedback.

I wasn't fishing for more problems to solve.

Hi,

Well, I finally solved the problem of the IE installation (not the Flash). I manually downloaded the mfc42.dll file to the following location:

Code:
./ie6/drive_c/windows/system32/mfc42.dll
I can't find the original link on the MS web site. However, here is another one from which you can get mfc42.dll.

Code:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?mfc42
After downloading and installing in the above-mentioned directory, I re-ran the ies4linux installation script and it seemed to install fine. I was thereafter able to run IE.

However, I'm not sure I the ActiveX installation is correct. I tried to install TurboTax next. It failed saying it wanted version 5 of ActiveX. I could only find version 7 on the Microsoft web site. The problem might be with TurboTax and not my ActiveX installation. I haven't gotten that far yet. :-)

Hi I,d like to clarify the previous post. I downloaded the dll from above and put it into the /home/ie4linux folder, then replaced the .dll in the file name with .cab. reran the last (install) command and everything works fine. The browser hung when I install flash from a prompt, but eventually it worked.

Hi all,

I had the same problem, the script would just hang & give the mfc42.cab error...

suse 10.3 with wine & cabextract updated...
I just downloaded the mfc42.cab from dll-files web site & extracted it to .ie4linux folder.

The script now works & ie4linux installed correctly

http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vc/MFC42.CAB

then you have to rename the file (all lowercase, including the extension)
