I have just downloaded WINE so that I can run Starcraft on my Linux Computer. It is an old DELL PowerEdge server (no sound card
) with a CD-Rom drive and 4 SCSI drives, one being used as swap(8GB). 1 mounted as / (8GB) and two approximately 30GB drives mounted in /usr and /home. To install starcraft I just loaded the installer and chose to installing into /home/admin (admin is my username). However, it was displayed in the installer as Z:\bin\home\user (I think they were back slashes, they may have been forward slashes though and only the Z:\bin\ bit is definate, I cannot fully remember). Anyway, it installed just fine, I also installed Brood War. I tried StarEdit, that ran great but whenever I try and run Starcraft it comes up with the following error:
Starcraft is unable to read a required file. Your Starcraft CD may not be in the CDROM Drive. Please ensure that the Starcraft disc is in the CDROM drive and press OK. To leave the program, press Exit.
I think this is due to the name on the disc being read as "CD-ROM Disc" and not Starcraft CD. I have experienced naming difficulties with Starcraft on the mac before. Because I do not 'own' the disc I cannot change the name. Also, I have seen that code before that you can execute to run it but I have not tried that as I don't know how to.
Finally, I know that this has been discussed before but the thread I found was two years old and I didn't think I should revive it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
