Installing WINE--Please HELP!


Hello. I have downloaded wine-20030508-mdk9.1.i586.rpm from the winehq website. I ran the file. (I think) it installed. I have created all the necessarry folders in /root (I run my computer as root). After, I have done that, I tried doing "whereis wine" in the command prompt, it came up with something, but not something particularly useful. Am I correct to assume I am looking for a folder called wine20030508? If so, where should I look for it?

This is what "whereis wine" spits out:
/usr/bin/wine /usr/lib/wine /usr/include/wine /usr/share/man/man1/wine.1.bz2

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers!

Jack.

Since /usr/bin/wine is probably in your PATH environment variable you can run "wine notepad" or something to see if it works.

If you want to know where all the wine related files are, you can do "rpm -ql wine" and also be aware of ~/.wine

Hello Zac, thank you for your reply. However, when running wine notepad, this is what I recieve:

Warning: no valid DOS drive found, check your configuration file.
Warning: could not find wine config [Drive x] entry for current working directory /root; starting in windows directory.
Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file,
which is (supposed to be) '/root/.wine/config'.

And I really don't have a config file. Where can I find it?

Cheers!

Jack.

Being root all the time is dangerous! Oh well, you've probably been warned already

Does ~/.wine/config really not exist? Normally it is created automatically the first time you run wine. Note that .wine is hidden so you have to use "ls -a" to see it.

Nope, config really does not exist, and i have no clue where to find it. Perhaps you can lend me yours, and I could make the required modifications? I hear it's pretty straight-forward.

Thanks.

Cheers!

Jack.

Doing "rpm -ql wine | grep conf" reveals /etc/wine/wine.conf which you can make a copy of.

Uhh, would this be it?

/usr/include/wine/wine/windows/dsconf.h
/usr/share/man/man5/wine.conf.5.bz2

That's all I got from running that command.

I'll post my config file if you start running as a normal user.

Okay, okay, I give in

Code:
WINE REGISTRY Version 2
;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config

;; If you think it is necessary to show others your complete config for a
;; bug report, filter out empty lines and comments with
;; grep -v "^;" ~/.wine/config | grep '.'
;;
;; MS-DOS drives configuration
;;
;; Each section has the following format:
;; [Drive X]
;; "Path"="xxx"       (Unix path for drive root)
;; "Type"="xxx"       (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network')
;; "Label"="xxx"      (drive label, at most 11 characters)
;; "Serial"="xxx"     (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number)
;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix')
;;   This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain
;;   directory structure.
;;   Recommended:
;;   - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32
;;   - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended)
;;   DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib !

It's really not so bad to having to type "su" and a password to become root. Most people agree that the benefits outweigh the disadvantages
