Unhappy I get this when I try and run wine with ANYTHING


[daniel@localhost windows]$ wine klitekpp210b3e.exe
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-daniel/server-307-5faf5 : No such file or directory
[daniel@localhost windows]$



I don't know why it does that with EVERY program I tried to start with it, even as root.
I am running redhat9.0.
And am stuck.

Ohh and I have tried with source and with rpms, to the same problem.

wine gave me a hell lot of trouble too, use vmware TRUST ME it can run operating systems on low-end computers so simply its not even funny and even though WINE is not an emulator it runs like one for sure

Here is good place to start.

Since RedHat 9.0 uses some sort of thread library that isn't wine friendly you have to use the RedHat 9.0 specific rpm. There isn't a big link to it like there should be and you can get it from here.

http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/redhat.../RPMS.newrpms/

If you didn't use that rpm I suggest you try it since it's the one the winehq says to use. If you did.... then I'm out of ideas cuz I like to compile wine from the source and apparently RedHat 9.0 doesn't play nice.

Zet do I have to have windows installed to run vmware?
If so I can't because my harddrive is pretty full, my computer is only 500MHZ (And K-lite runs bad with just windows at 500MHZ), and I have vowed to only have windows if I
1) Need to play some games.
2) I find no way to burn DVDs on linux.
3) If they come out with a free 64BIT linux for my new computer that works good.
Of course 3 will never happen. So I can't install windows.
And if I was to install windows I might as well just dual boot to windows if I needed to.

Hmmm.. back to square one.

When you compiled the thing from source, did you use tools/wineinstall or did you the ./configure yadda yadda. The readme says to use the wineinstall function. I know there is third party info on what to do first but if winehq says to run a certain way then it's usually a good idea to listen.

Also, if you got that far did you use an existing installation or make a fake directory in /home/you/c. It also says to avoid using the existing installation and use the fake one.

Next did you run tools/wineinstall as root or user?? Wine is very clear on not running as root when installing and only doing so when prompted.

Try removing all wine installs and use the 200305 version.

Sorry about that rpm.

What the permission set to on /tmp.? I don't have anything wine related in there, and I don't think wine even cares to look there.

Another thing. Look in wine.conf which should live in /home/you/.wine The 200305 version associates /tmp with drive E:\ Make sure your C:\ isn't pointed there and all the other drives are pointed to the right places.

I am out of ideas... Sorry

I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it:
Type: 'export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5' in your consol before you run wine. Put his line in your shell start up file so you don't have to run this everytime you open a new shell prompt.

Thanks for all the help guys but I am going to install slackware soon to see if that works out to be less bloated as redhat.

BTW: How do I get slackware to install on a partition I made with partiiton magic in *shudders* windows.
Yes I know windows but I am a gamer and want to be able to play CS so I will be using linux for UT2K3 (Best game evar) and windows for cs and the other non linux games.

I am guessing I will be posting a "I get this when I try and run wine with ANYTHING on slackware" topic soon.
