Wine Troubles


Basically, I've finally got wine installed correctly. I just need to know how to get programs to work with it. I type in wine directory and it starts all this code as if its loading it, then it gets done and never loads it. I'm not sure if this is normal or what...So I figured I'd turn to you guys

Have you configured wine? You have to creat a "fake windows" installation in your home directory. The easiest way to do this is download, install and run winesetuptk: http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...?group_id=6241

You have wine AND winesetuptk installed?

If you got winesetupkt installed, you need to run it *before* you install any windows software. To run it you just type winesetuptk in a terminal and an easy to understand wizzard guides you through the rest.

ok
sorry to bust in on ya'll's thread but
I've got RH9
just installed wine rpm for RH9
and the winesetuptk
looked in /usr/bin/ where all the wine stuff ended up
I can klick on winesetup icon and run it
its all set to default
tried changing the path

[Drive C]
"Path" = "%HOME%/wine"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

as it says on
http://www.winehq.com/site/docs/wine...DRIVE-SECTIONS

that didnt work
tried
33 [Drive C]
34 "Path" = "/c"
35 "Type" = "hd"
36 "Label" = "MS-DOS"
37 "Filesystem" = "win95"

as it said http://source.winehq.org/source/docu...samples/config

I do not know how to set up the "virtual C drive" as others have tole me to


in the /usr/bin/ file I can click on the "winefile" icon and open the vitual folder
but cannot "cd" into it as the other respondants have suggested

I can see the .exe files I've put in but it says access denied when I try to open them

could someone fill in this one missing step for me

ehd

ok, when trying to run KaZaA, I got this in the terminal:

[root@localhost Kazaa Lite K++]# wine kpp.exe
Could not stat /root/.wine/${HOME} (No such file or directory), ignoring drive F :
fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support f or it ?
fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support f or it ?
fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support f or it ?

Then I also got a registry error...

Don't run it from an actual XP install, use a fake windows drive instead.
