Hello im trying to get wine-20050111 up and going on my Mandrake 10.01 box.
I used the following RPM to install it
After doing a stander
rpm -ivh wine-20050111-mdk.i586.rpm
the installation went and finished without any errors.
So i go to start and it wont start? After reading through winehp.com documents i see that the configuration file must be set, however the package i installed does not come with a configuration file. So to get one i must get it from the SRC.rpm file.
as stated on web site
5.4.2. Creating Or Modifying The Configuration File
If you just installed Wine for the first time and want to finish Wine installation by configuring it now, then you could use our sample configuration file config (which can be found in the directory documentation/samples/ of the Wine source code directory) as a base for adapting the Wine configuration file to the settings you want. First, I should mention that you should not forget to make sure that any previous configuration file at ~/.wine/config has been safely moved out of the way instead of simply overwriting it when you will now copy over the sample configuration file.
If you don't have a pre-existing configuration file and thus need to copy over our sample configuration file to the standard Wine configuration file location, do in a terminal:
$ mkdir ~/.wine/
$ cp dir_to_wine_source_code/documentation/samples/config ~/.wine/config
Otherwise, simply use the already existing configuration file at ~/.wine/config.
Now you can start adapting the configuration file's settings with an editor according to the documentation below. Note that you should only change configuration file settings if wineserver is not running (in other words: if your user doesn't have a Wine session running), otherwise Wine won't use them - and even worse, wineserver will overwrite them with the old settings once wineserver quits!!
But i dont know how to do this, every time i try to open the src.rpm file it wants to install it but i dont want to do that?
thanks for the help ahead of time.
