[HELP - S.O.S] Linux Wine Problem


I've been having an issue with Wine. I'm running CentOS 64 bit and I succeeded installing all the DLL and Windows Components that I needed but ran into a brick wall when I found that I needed the dot net 4 Framework. I've tried installing the 64 bit version of it and that didn't work. I've been pretty much screwed and stuck.

There is a shell file that accomplishes what would've been done in the exe except the shell is a pain in the arse, because you can't really do parameters with a shell file that would achieve what I needed.

I'm trying to create an Arma 2 Private DayZ server for a client of mine and it seems as though the errors never stop coming. I've seen all the videos regarding this and one was even made by a German guy in which I followed every word that escaped his mouth and I still ran into the problem with the dotnet 4 framework (I'm assuming because I have the 64 bit CentOS).

Anyway, I'd appreciate some help with it, I've been trying to hammer this issue down for the last several days now and I will get it. Just need some help.

Thanks!
Jim

Grief.

Don't put Help S.O.S in a subject line even if you are desparate. It's one of the unwritten rules.
get rid of wine64 - unless you have a 64bit only program. It's still hopeful rather than reliable.
I presume you have the latest winetricks.

Not a tested link, but it offered me a file to save

Can't really abide by unwritten rules, can we? Thanks though, I'll try this out now.

Ok, just a thought here as I don't use CentOS:

Is the build of Wine actualle 64 bit? Under many other distros, even if running a 64 bit distro, Wine is a 32 bit app, and therefore will only run 32 bit applications. Maybe something to look into. If such is the case, you'll need to install the 32 bit .Net framework and a 32 bit version of the application.

CentOS is 64 bit, Wine I believe is 32 bit. After trying the install it failed because it said it was already installed. I know it's not though because if it was then the application would've ran. Right now when I try to run the application it looks like it tries but then it just fails and it doesn't load up at all.

The application is as well 32 bit. It's Armed Assault 2 and is a game that doesn't care much for Linux.

the version of wine in the centos 6 repos is old, very OLD -- the stable version but still old
wine-core.1.4.1.i686.rpm
VS.
wine-1.5.22.tar.bz2

you would be far better off installing the current version from wineHQ

as to .net 4 framework

install windows7

I'm going to try using the updated Wine instead of the old one. I noticed that you were very right. You may have just helped contribute to me finding out what's wrong with my wine and why I'm not able to do anything with it. Will post my results for others who will more than likely wind up having the same issue.

I finally installed the latest version and I ran into a problem with it not reading any .exes. This frustrated me to the point where I uninstalled all traces of Wine. Afterwards, I went out to try and find the program I was specifically looking for and to my surprise a guy made a Linux standalone server just for Linux. Which is exactly what I needed, for those of you interested - http://forums.bistudio.com/showthrea...ta-1-62-100000

I do appreciate the help from all of you. I'll leave Wine and come back to it when I know what I'm doing.

I always update the git for wine, then ./configure --prefix=/usr && make in that, then

Code:
make DESTDIR=/tmp/somewhere install
cd /tmp/somewhere
makepkg ../wine-yymmdd.txz
It makes 32 bit by default even on a 64 bit machine.
