Joining the wonderful world of linux once again after a few failed attempts over the years i decided to try out Fedore Core test2.
I have it installed just fine except for a few issues:
Im trying to install Wine v0.74 and its giving me a permission denied when running ./tools/wineinstall, the following error occurs:
./configure: line88: conf4276.sh: Premission denied
./configure: line89: conf4276.sh: Premission denied
chmod: failed to get attributes of 'conf4276.sh' : no such file or directory
./configure: line201: conf4276.sh: Premission denied
./configure: line941: config.log: Premission denied
The above is when run as user, when i run it as Root it won't install because im root saying i need to run it as a regular user?
Any ideas on this?
My other problem is totally different nad has to do with recompiling the kernel with NTFS support, i went through the forums to find any info and found alot of good stuff, although it still won't work for me, so i decided to run the patch from redhat, however this is for Kernel 2.4.20 and mine is 2.4.22, is there a src package available for rebuild with my kernel?
I dont know anything about your wine problem, but i can help you with the kernel.
go to the kernel sources and run there "make menuconfig"
in the section "File Systems" select "NTFS File System Support" make it a module (mark it as "M") then exit, save your kernelconfig, and do a "make modules" and finally "make modules_install"
If you finished with this, load the module "modprobe ntfs" ant you have ntfs support
