your right. ive read the readme file and it says when i want to run a windows program i do this
Code:
[user@localhost game cube]$ wine gcube
but when i do this this is displayed
Code:
[user@localhost game cube]$ wine gcube
wine: creating configuration directory '/home/user/.wine'...
ALSA lib conf.c:3949:(snd_config_expand) Unknown parameters 0
ALSA lib control.c:909:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default:0
wine: '/home/user/.wine' created successfully.
wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\gcube.exe": Module not found
[user@localhost game cube]$
but as far as im aware linux dosent have a file path like c:\\windows\\system32\\ but in looking in to it online

That's what running the wine configurator would create for you, a winblows environment complete with all the relevant folders etc.

Hey, hey, be calm. I haven't used it myself, but I've heard a bit about it. The fact that there's no (or next to no) documentation on Linpus's site is a bit disconcerting. FUD is not what I'm after, the product just seems... weak. Anyways, </offtopic>.


Again, OP, before jumping into Wine, why not use native Linux Dolphin? Are there problems with it? If Linpus offers a package for it, you could use that, otherwise just compile it. That would be better than Wine.

I didnt know what the dolphin was until I googled it.a Nintendo gamecube emulator.I read the minimum requirements.. a 9500 card ,Geforce recommended ..it sounds like even if you do get it installed and running..your acer dosent have what it taked to run it..If it does you probably get 5fps second out of it.

# System requirements:
# GFX: Radeon 9500+ series card recommended, but Geforce FX series also work. Expect severe graphics problems with lower cards.
# CPU: The fastest you can find.
# RAM: 256MB or higher strongly recommended.
# Audio: Any Windows/DirectX-compatible soundcard
