I need something like "Actually Getting WINE to Work for Morons"


I just got Linspire 4.5 and then went to the WINE site and downloaded the latest version of WINE (20050111). I went to the HowTo on the WINE site and it said extract the tar.gz and run './configure && make depend && make && su -c "make install"' I ran that (as root) and it said I didn't have permision for ./configure So I changed the permission and ran the command again and got the following output:

bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

Oh, I don't really want to buy something because the only Windows application I want to run on Linux is Warcaft III: The Frozen Throne (and its World Editor).

It'll cost you $$$ ($15 for 3 mos download privleges), but I'd suggest Cedega...

Hey stick with the WINE... ok so it may be being a pain but it's free

I appreciate that the Cedega will probably be a bit more straight forward but ultimately what will that teach you? Surely that's as bad as buying Widows

Sorry it's only my opinion so just ignore it if you disagree...

I'm about to get stuck into WINE at work on Monday so I will try and tell you my findings.

First, don't run that command you listed as root. Run it as yourself. (The part '&& su -c "make install"' will prompt you for the root password for that step.)

Wine has its own installer. As a regular user just type "tools/wineinstall".

notroot@VPR-Matrix-Linspire:/disks/dos/wine-20050111/tools$ wineinstall
bash: wineinstall: command not found

I looked in the tools directory and checked for wineinstall and it wasn't there.

Type ls -l under the wine directory. The permissions should be 750. You were doing it correct, so do not run wineinstall. It has more problems. If you want to run it type ./wineinstall. Linux is a little strange because ./ means in this directory run this command. Typing wineinstall will not work because wineinstall is not in your search path. Also you may want to check if /bin/sh is the right path by doing whereis sh.

After you installed Wine, try loading up notepad. Then you can complain more and try to setup wine to run WC3. If you can not, try VMware.

I do not recommend using WINE for the first day using Linux. I suggest using Linux for a few weeks or months and then try compiling some programs to build up the knowledge to compile and configure WINE. I give it a 9 out of 10 on how hard it is to compile it and configure it to run Windows programs. In some cases I give it a 10.

You can compile the CVS version, but it does not include the proprietary DirectX libraries needed to play most games. That is what you pay for.

WINE has both a compatible DirectX version and OpenGL code. When I compiled WINE, I spot DirectX and its only verson 7. For OpenGL to be compiled with WINE, you need OpenGL headers that comes with your video card. Use OpenGL instead of DirectX because OpenGL is hardware instead emulating or adding a layer so DirectX can work. I removed WINE because I have no need for it.

DirectX is a Microsoft render that is only for Windows. OpenGL is an universal 3D render which is a widely used by CAD and 3D modeling companies.
