Re: newb Wine question
Originally posted by zombie killa i just started using Linux and im using Redhat 9 and i have tried to install Wine several times and nothing seems to work i keep getting the same error after the installation...
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-mike/server-302-76e11 : No such file or directory
what do i do to fix this?
and is it true that wine doesnt work properly on RH9 yet?
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:
You will need to set file permissions on the fake windows directory but the winehq explains all that. Let me know how that goes.
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.
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
mkdir Program\ Files
cd Program\ Files
mkdir Common\ Applications
(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
