Yet another wine question


Yeah, probably been asked, but I did a search-ski and found nothing.

Anyways, I installed Mandrake for about the 6th time in 72 hours because I had done an online update that had installed a most horrendous font into wine which I tried to uninstall but ended up screwing KDE up (No fixed width font). So, I reinstall everything, including wine, and finally get back to my desktop. I try to run my "test windows .exe" (AKA Chip's Challenge), and it comes up asking me to choose the program to run it... So I look in 'More Applications'. Alas, no emulator folder with Wine.

So, I looked in 'remove software', and there was Wine. So I figured, 'You're just being a bastard', and uninstalled and reinstalled it. Same thing. So I re-uninstalled it, and downloaded the more up-to-date version from a few weeks ago. I tried to install it, it looked like it was going to go, when out of the blue, I get a nice purdy error message: "file /usr/lib/libwine.so.1 from install of wine-20041201-mdk conflicts with file from package libwine1-20040813-2mdk"
It repeated this many times for each file within the software package...

Any help that doesn't invlove reformatting a 7th time?

Hmmm... Tried that. Won't let me do a search. Says I need to log on as root and type updatedb in the console.

However, I can't figure out how to log on as root, or how to set my account as root.

as it said, he doesnt have a db yet. He can use "find," but I wouldnt reccomend it. Its slow. So run updatedb as root, and then do locate

Yup, jollyjoice helped me... Search sucks in KDE, but it works fine for me in Gnome.

But yeah, got rid of those files and it installed fine and works now.

Yeeeeeeeay, Chip's Challenge! 8 )
