problems running the sims on mandrake 9.1


Can anyone please help me?, I have just installed the sims for linux on my pc running mandrake 9.1, I can play the game as long as i delete the folder called 'wineserver-localhost' which seems to appear in the .the_sims directory. if i don't delete it before i try to run the game, it doesn't work.

is there some way to write the eqivilent to a batch file so it would do this automatically when i click on the program icon.

the file that needs deleting is /home/username/.the_sims/winserver-localhost
the program command is the_sims

You can use a shell script to do this. For instance, put this in a text file:

#!/bin/sh
rm ~/.the_sims/wineserver-localhost
the_sims


then move it to /usr/bin, and make it executable (chmod +x)

In fact this problem sounds very much like threading related problems - I suggest you ask TransGaming if there is a patch for the sims available for mdk9.1
