to install application from winex u have to:

1. put cdrom it and mount it (mount /dev/[cdrom])
2. browse to cdrom in console (mnt/cdrom/)
3. write in console: "winex install.exe" or "winex3 install.exe" "wine install.exe" ... it depend what winex version u have...

but if u want to install diablo2 the best way is have two CDROM drives.... because there are some problems with changing cdrom`s ^^

You have to just run a second terminal, as root, to mount and unmount the cd device during the install process (which should not be as root). Man mount.

Man mount, and also read your /etc/fstab for hints as to the filesystem option to use. You probably need to su - to log in as root to un/mount the cd drive though.
I learned while managing the UT2K3 3cd install.

ive been using windows since i can remember. mount /dev/cdrom/mnt/cdrom
then cd /mnt/cdrom
winex install.exe
then unmount mount when you switch cds.
make sure you have the right vid drivers.

Hey Guys

This is what konsole prints out when i try "cd /mnt/cdrom"
"winex install.exe"

"[sergeantroach@localhost cdrom]$ winex3 install.exe
wine: lstat /home/sergeantroach/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost/socket : No such file or directory"


It also prints the same message when I try
"[sergeantroach@localhost sergeantroach]$ winex3 /mnt/cdrom/install.exe"

This has something to do with the .config file hasn't it?

Hey Guys

I've tried everything else I know how to do and have been told to do.

Here is the (very long) config file for WineX 3.3.0
Can anyone see anything wrong with it?

WINE REGISTRY Version 2
;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config

;;
;; MS-DOS drives configuration
;;
;; Each section has the following format:
;; [Drive X]
;; "Path"="xxx" (Unix path for drive root)
;; "Type"="xxx" (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network')
;; "Label"="xxx" (drive label, at most 11 characters)
;; "Serial"="xxx" (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number)
;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix')
;; This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain
;; directory structure.
;; Recommended:
;; - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32
;; - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended)
;; DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib !
;; "Device"="/dev/xx" (only if you want to allow raw device access)

Welcome new SuSE user.

It's amazing how easy it is to get a hand of KDE. I like it better than Gnome, personally. And you can't beat CUPS for printing.

Second task is finding a way to sync wife's PDA (still in process).
Try JPilot. It's not installed by default, but if you have the Professional version of SuSE 8.2, its on the disks. When setting up, just point the pilot to the serial or usb port where it's hooked up. By the way, USB to serial adapters are not generally supported.

Quote:
Third task was figuring out Wine. Some programs run fine, others don't at all. I am not getting an error message, just nothing.

How do I debug? How do I determine what windows programs will run under Wine and which won't without testing each of them?
That's the real trick. There may be a database of wine compatible aps out there. All I know of is Transgaming's WineX games list. Productivity apps are another story.
