help installing wine in mandrake


I have Mandrake 10.1 and I've been trying to get wine to work so I can play Diablo II, among other things.

I installed wine and everything that looked wine-related in rpmdrake, then I tried to run the wine configurator from the menu and nothing happened.
winecfg at a prompt produces: "wine: cannot find '--' "

wine /mnt/cdrom/install.exe produces: "fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet." as well as a message box saying "ERROR: No program start menu found".

I tried to install winetools from [apparently I'm not allowed to post URLs with less than 5 posts, but it's the official winetools site, the first hit on a google search for "winetools"] but the rpm wouldn't install due to "unsatisfied xdialog". I tried to install xdialog but it said everything was already installed.

So I downloaded the rpm and installed it ignoring dependencies and tried to run wt2, but I got this: "FATAL! You don't have gettext.sh on your system." I downloaded gettext.sh from the winetools site and copied it to /home/cassie/bin and /usr/local/bin, but I'm getting the same message.

I'm out of ideas.

Can someone help me?

remove the last rpm and reinstall with gettext in place first?
run the rpm from terminal so you can see the failed dependancies. Get all the dependancies.
Read everything in the wine.org site carefully.

I got a gettext rpm off of rpmdrake and got winetools to install and now wt2 will run. It warns me that the wine version I'm using isn't one of the versions they tested with wine tools, and asks me where my cd-rom/dvd drive is, and I try to go through the basic setup and then:

found gettext in path
which: no dillo in (/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin)
Browser is /usr/local/bin/firefox.
detecting Wine version... done.
Drive C: is /home/cassie/.wine/drive_c
Wine 20040813
wine is executed as wine
Parameters are --noexit
Calls to wine are executed as wine.
Config is /home/cassie/.wine/winetools.log.
CDROM is /mnt/cdrom.
Choice is Base setup
Choice is Create a fake Windows drive with checked=F
waiting for wineservers to exit...
all wineservers endet after 0 seconds...
Converted temp dir to new entry HKCU\Environment "TEMP" = L"t:\\"
Converted path dir to new entry HKCU\Environment "PATH" = L"c:\\windows;c:\\windows\\system"
Converted profile dir to new entry HKCU\Environment "USERPROFILE" = L"c:\\windows\\Profiles\\Administrator"
Converted windows dir to new entry HKCU\Environment "windir" = L"c:\\windows"
Converted system dir to new entry HKCU\Environment "winsysdir" = L"c:\\windows\\system"

and at this point it doesn't appear to be doing anything else... but it's apparently not finished doing whatever it's supposed to be doing either.

When I try to run the D2 install I get the same error it gave me before.

OK - you're doing great!
Initially you said:

Which is great news - you're almost there...

But a problem remains:

And that would be this error message:

In /home/cassie/.wine there should be a host of log files - see what they have to say about this... there is also a config file - have a look through that too. You can read about it with man wine.conf or by reading the documentation in wine HQ.

It's difficult to see if this is a wine config problem or a D2 problem - you may find yourself bypassing the D2 installation program to get it on your system.

And since this seems to be the case - I don't know if you've got through it all either - you may want to have a look at winetools.log too.

And really read the documentation in wine HQ
