another step... wineX


okay, i managed to connect to the winex cvs and i think i got everything installed...

i threw my diable 2 install cd in the drive and moutned it

mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom

then i went into my /mnt/cdrom folder and tried to start the install

cd /mnt/cdrom
wine setup.exe

I got the following error

wineserver: chdir /root/.wine : No such file or directory

Odd... I know i made one...

cd /
cd /.wine
ls --> displays the config i copied over from the documetnation

so the directories there, but its not finding it? any suggestions?

okay, i switched to user an copied the /.wine/config to /home/john/.wine/config

I tried to run the install again and got:

Could not stat /home/john/.transgaming/c_drive (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C:
Invalid path 'c:\windows' for windows directory: does not exist
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file.
This is (supposed to be) '/home/john/.wine/config'

Got to thinking, and created /home/john/.wine/c_drive... I tried to install again, and got this:

Invalid path 'c:\windows' for windows directory: does not exist
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file.
This is (supposed to be) '/home/john/.wine/config'

Thats pretty much as far as i know how to go...

Any suggestions?

Preparing to install default Wine registry entries...
Installing default Wine registry entries...

Could not stat /root/c (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C:
Invalid path 'c:\windows' for windows directory: does not exist
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file.
This is (supposed to be) '/root/.wine/config'

You should really read the documentation.

1. You can't run wine as root because its such a big security hazard
2. Modify your /home/john/.wine/config. There should be an entry like this:
[Drive]....

Here is where you configure your disks. If you have a windows installed on your drive (in C: for example), you can use that ... if not, you should use the windows files provided by transgaming. (They should be in /home/john/.transgaming/c_drive).

If you are a newbie, I recomend you install winex from source, because cvs version might not contain all the necessary files.

If you are a real newbie, try the rpm version instead. Note that for all these versions you must modify /home/john/.wine/config by hand so it matches your system. Read the documentation.

hahahah! thanks!
i opened up the diablo 2 setup as a user, and it actually did something!

I get the following:

john@john:/mnt/cdrom$ wine setup.exe
fixme:module:CreateProcessA (E:\d2l_Install.exe,...): CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP ignored
fixme:module:CreateProcessA (E:\d2l_Install.exe,...): CREATE_DEFAULT_ERROR_MODE ignored
john@john:/mnt/cdrom$ fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.

A wine console opens up with an error box that says:

"No program start menu found"

Not sure what this means.. i have the start menu folder, and a program folder inside that... If that helps at all

okay, new problem... i got the d3 installation screen up, and i chose full install... simple enough when i did it in windows...
i have the installation disc in there, but it asks for the play disc... okay, fair enough.. eject and put in the play disc...

OH WAIT! I can't eject without unmounting... so i try to unmount

root@john:/home/john# umount /dev/hdc
umount: /mnt/cdrom: device is busy

i'm sure this quesiton has been answered a million times, please forgive me! i'm so excited! i never thought i would get this working!! SO CLOSE!!

Well, i got diablo 2 installed... i throw the playcd in, mount it, and run playd2.exe (because i can't figure out where it actually installed)
i get the splash screen with the button to "Play Diablo II", so i press that and then... nothing!!!
Another winex console window opens up with a blinking white box in the upper left corner an this in the colsole:

john@john:~$ wine /mnt/cdrom/playd2.exe
fixme:module:CreateProcessA (C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe,...): NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS ignored
fixme:module:CreateProcessA (C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe,...): CREATE_DEFAULT_ERROR_MODE ignored
