AmdMhz!!!

You could:

1 - Tell us what you are trying to install. Because there could be either a Linux alternative which is always better then using wine or:

2 - check Franks corner after the program you are trying to install and see if there's any tip in there to help you out:

hmmm, you could try an application which works easy with wine first to make sure it works. Try TextPad or something . I'd like to help you with Office, but since I failed miserable installing Office 2000, I won't suggest anything .ghehe

what version of wine are you running?

when you just type wine in a terminal or konsole, what is the output?

have you installed a wine package or from source? in the source directory at the base, do ./tools/winetest to see how well your wine was built

i strongly recommend building from source if you have not; do rm -rf ~/.wine to get rid of bad config files (back them up if you want to keep them) and then delete your fake c drive

in wine source, from the base, do ./tools/wineinstall and it will tell you how to do everything

after that, try running notepad and winemine and tell us the results; we can then help you setup your config file

i assume that you were root when you wer installing...

avoid being root (the installer wil prompt you for root password when it needs to install)

to avoid problems, go ahead (while logged in as user) and do mkdir ~/.wine

then, go back into your source dir and do ./tools/wineinstall (since you've already compiled the program, it will skip recompiling)

now you shouldn't have trouble...

btw, what wine are your trying to compile?

Would you have one for Medal of Honor-Allied Assault? I tried wine myself and had no luck with it. I read about WineX, but i don't play enough games to spend money downloading it, and yes, i know it can be built, but don't really feel like taking the time for just one game.

Hi all,

MS Office 2000 installs fine if you use emulation program called Crossover Office. It is based on wine but handles msoffice better. Here's the url:

http://www.codeweavers.com/site/stor...od-cwcooffc-dl

(You'll be able to find the program file somewhere on the net but it is of course recommedable to pay for these guys for their hard work.)

But why not to use Open Office 1.1 for example. It is pretty capable to perform the common tasks that msoffice does.

-Vx

I dont mind paying, but I just wanted to see if I can get wine to work. Yet I have not. If codeweavers would send me the link to download the trial maybe I would buy it but it has been days and no response. Everyone else has luck with wine, but I cant seem to get it working. all I do is keep getting this error

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

wine: chdir to /home/amdmhz/.wine/wineserver-localhost.localdomain : No such file or directory
Registry install failed.

Really have no idea what it means.

ok first thing i suggest is what i am going to say below, cause i read this thread, and everything doesn't seem to be making sense ... so this is what i suggest to you :
remove abosolutely everything on your computer wine related, and download a new copy, and extract the source to your home folder ... when you do that, run the file called "wineinstall" located in the tools folder inside the extracted wine folder ..
just follow the directions and in the end you should have wine completely set up, and with a working fake windows drive ... then hop over to frankscorner and follow instructions for Office2K

as of codeweavers, the best i can mention about this is to :
go here and grab an older copy of cw-wine and give it a try .... they are from years 2001 - 2002 .. only 2001 for tarballs ..

and as of winex if you wanna try it, you do the following ....
-) open up a terminal
-) cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
-) When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
-) cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

the copy that you get when you download from here, is the latest version of winex, but the only catch is you don't get the support like you would if you payed for it .. you just get no support by using the cvs version ..
and then same as regular wine, to make it easy on you go into the tools sub-folder within the winex folder and run "wineinstall"

hope this helps ..!
