Thanks for the link, Xavier. Just browsed over to the link now... and it looks good. I think I'll have a go at it too.

It's not quick to install but it does work - I may install Winetools from Frank's Corner to make some tasks a little easier.

Hi,
I haven't done it yet. Planning to do it later tonight. Will keep you updated. BTW, which distro are you using for the install? RH or Mandrake? Coz', I think I have heard some complaints about installing on Mandrake (some version or the other -whether it be Mandrake or Dreamweaver). But, I am not sure about it.

Using RH9 - getting errors about my .dlls - I'll have to think about redownloading them (from here) as I copied them off my XP partition.

I'll give it a go and post back.

Better idea for the .dlls - run a google search for "<dll name> download".

And the whole thing works!!

Hey....good for you. As for me, I got stuck in the installing DCOM thing (95 or 98 - I downloaded both). Got some errors in both. I guess I must have done something inherently wrong with my installation. I couldn't seem to find some files as suggested in the how-to at Frankscorner (even though Notepad worked). I am looking into more documentation. Any tips ? My eyes are buldging out of their sockets and I am basically

As for you, go - have a beer or something......
Cheers !!

I'd love a beer - maybe after work!

As as DCOM goes - I installed it and seem to remember an error at the end. It could be an idea to install the WineTools utility. There is a button for installing DCOM. You definitely need all the dlls - the link I posted doesn't supply all of them so googling is the way to go (unless you can extract them from a Win95/98 cd). I tried to create a desktop shortcut, but that fails - I can only call it from within a terminal. Otherwise it all seems to work. Yay me!

Thanks for the reminder. I had already downloaded Winetools too....but forgot to use it. I'll try my installations again later.
But I still say, you have got to go out and have a beer.
.....after all, you have already had your share of wine.......

Yooo... hooo......... I made a royal #$%*&@# mess to my xconfig. The installation of DCOM still didn't seem to work. Winetools made things a lot easier. Got a lot of "fixme:...." errors. But I just went ahead and and installed Dreamweaver (thinking, maybe its because of the missing dlls and I can put it later) and then that other file (as given at Frankscorner). Of course, it didn't work. Then my connection was down for the night. So I thought I'd make another fresh start in the morning. So I uninstalled wine, deleted all wine-related dirs. and files - then shut down the comp.
In the morning, booted up, there was no X. So I went to the configurator, entered the values etc.... when I started x, it said a window was busy and so it opened another window and x started fine (as root). I fine-tuned all the x values to normal (like I use it). Seemed to work fine. So I rebooted, started x as a normal user. And it gave me the same error and wouldn't start x.
Now the problem is solved. How ?? Right now I am reinstalling the whole thing again.
No regrets - coz' there was a lot of junk (read misconfigurations) that I played around with. I forgot to back up important files (in this case the xconfig). I am a newbie and trying to get round my way through. Well, just make sure you got a back-up too !! I am sure it had to do with the installation of DW because I never mess around with display settings and I didn't use any other programs too.
Just out of curiousity, would you know the reason for that problem - about the xconfig thing?
(anybody who has been following this thread is welcome to provide some insight)

Thanks

I have absolutely no insights into this - mine just worked. Maybe one of the files you deleted was important?? Glad to hear that you didn't lose anything when you reinstalled though.

Stop !! I am turning green with envy.
I have another problem now, but its not related to wine or DW. So I guess I'll have to start a different thread now. I'll get back to the installations after I solve this problem.
