It's "supossed" to be working I think. Cause they have fixed that problem with glibc as far as I know.

Have you tried deleting that directory? And what version of Wine are you using?

Zombiekilla,

I'm running rh9 also. I had tones of problems getting wine to work properly on it. I did a tar install. You should do the same. Go to www.winehq.com and download the latest tar file I believe that date on it is 08052003. You will unzip it, go into the directory and run the following commands:
./configure
make
make install
You will need to set file permissions on the fake windows directory but the winehq explains all that. Let me know how that goes.

That will not fix it. Use the RPMs built for Redhat 9 specifically, either from newrpms.sunsite.dk, or the download links on WineHQ

I just did a full installation of wine a few days ago. It was my first and it works perfectly. First the winehq.org site has excellent documentation for installing it on Red Hat, Debian, or from source. Second I did the installation from source, and this is what I would recomend in this case. I just downloaded the source file and after unpacking everything I ran the /tools/wineinstall script and that did all. This sets up the "windows" file directory and registry (if you dont have a windows partition with the syste installed), and guides you through the whole process. The installation was easier than what I though.

Good Luck,
Figa

if you dont run the wine install script, you need to manually copy some files and create a directory tree. im doin this from memory, so bear with me


type:

cd
mkdir .wine
cd .wine
mkdir c_drive
cd c_drive
mkdir Windows
mkdir Program\ Files
cd Program\ Files
mkdir Common\ Applications
cd ../Windows
mkdir System
mkdir System32
mkdir Fonts


(i think im missing something, but anyways)

after that you gotta copy win.ini and system.ini, in the wine folder i think theyre in docs/samples. copy those to your .wine/c_drive directory. after that, copy the sample config file to your .wine directory, and go through it, most of it is straight forward. one other thing i noticed, some installs dont work unless you give the right access. cause i have no idea what user it runs under, i just do this (from my home dir) - chmod -Rv 777 .wine (if that doesnt work try -rv, you want the recursive switch). gonna install it soon myself, so when i do ill be able to walk you through it. hope that helped

Matt
