Rainbow Six install woes....


I try installing Rainbow Six and it ends up giving me this error. I just downloaded Winex (cvs), and this was the first thing I tried to install.

Code:
bash-2.05b$ wine AutoRun.exe 
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetIdeInterface not implemented for true scsi drives
err:font:Fontconfig_Init Fontconfig support was not compiled in at compile time.
err:font:FTAlias_FindBestBuiltins Could not create alias for serif fonts
Unable to find a sufficient number of fonts available to FreeType.
        FreeType will not be loaded as a result.
FreeType could not be loaded.
        This is not necessarily a fatal error, however some
        applications require FreeType to be installed and
        may not function or display text correctly otherwise.
        Please consult the WineX Font FAQ for more details
        about this problem

err:seh:EXC_DefaultHandling Unhandled exception code c0000194 flags 0 addr 0x40072624
bash-2.05b$
So far I can see at least 3 problems:
The %HOME% location
FreeType
and
fixme:xrender:X11DRV_XRender_Finalize Free cached glyphsets

I'm guessing that the last one is holding up my installation, because that's the last line I get when I try to install Winzip as well. Does anyone see where something could be tripping up? I can't even get wine to run notepad right now, but that deserves its own thread. Any and all help appreciated.

did you try regular wine?

PS: why would you want winzip when you got fileroller or ark?

Do those compress windows formatted .zip files? I have some stuff that I used winzip for, not any linux tools.

As to the wine part:
I had wine installed before, but I uninstalled it right before I installed winex. wine opened notepad, at least, but winex can open things like installers I made for things like game mods, but won't open other things. It can run the Autorun for my Rainbow Six cd, but it can't do anything with any of the imbedded components(Well, MPlayer install opens up, but won't finish, I think it's because the site it is looking for is dead now, old online gaming community got overrun by Zone....)

So I might try using regular wine again, but I need to find my Civilzation 2 disk before I remove winex.

i think they compress them. they certainly uncompress them, but i would recommend using .tar.bz2 instead of .zip.
for the wine issue: i think theres a script somewhere that installs cvs winex in a way that it can co-exist with vanilla wine. dunno where it is, but maybe a google search at:
http://google.com/linux
will help?

"${HOME}" instead og %HOME% in the wine config located in:
~/.transgaming/config ~/userwinex/config and ~/wine/config
