Question Installing and Running Wine Mandrake 9.2


Hi folks
I could not run Wine even after most suggestions. Here are few Qs which might help me to run it.
1. Where should I install? I have got the rpm for Mandrake 9.2. Or is it that where ever I install , it goes to the right place? Before installing do I need to su?
2. I already have window Xp running on my machine. So, do I need to create a fake ./wine and all the other files in it ? or can I point wint to /mnt/windows?
3. I already have word etc installed on Windows , so will I be able to run them or do I need to install them again in UNIX in wine folder.
4.Can somebody paste a sample config file as I couldn't find one. When I install wine it doesn't make .wine itself.I was suggested to make .wine and other subdirectory inside it and edit the config file.
Thanks very much for your help.

Yes, you have to be root in order to install wine. If you have the .rpm file, as root type: urpmi -p wine<version>.rpm, with <version> being the version number. It will install it in the correct directory. If you want to know where it installed the files, then type: rpm -qa | grep wine<version> | rpm -qil .

For most programs, you have to install them in wine, mainly for the registry entries, ect.

Word is one of those programs you will have to install via wine.

Here is my wine config file. You can use this as a base, just change what is right for your system

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

;; If you think it is necessary to show others your complete config for a
;; bug report, filter out empty lines and comments with
;; grep -v "^;" ~/.wine/config | grep '.'
;;
;; 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 !

Thanks guys.
Here is what I got from winehq howto
"If notepad doesn't work for you, you may need to create these directories yourself. To do that, create the following directories in your home directory:


.wine/

.wine/c_drive
.wine/c_drive/Windows
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Fonts
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Start Menu/Programs
.wine/c_drive/Windows/System
.wine/c_drive/Windows/System32
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Temp
.wine/c_drive/Program Files
.wine/c_drive/Program Files/Common Files


After this copy the following files from wine-YYYYMMDD/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine/Windows:

system.ini
win.ini "




Right I made all the directires as suggested BUT I need these two files-
system.ini
win.ini
which I could not find in the documentaion which is missing in config and these files.
Can somebody paste it for me please.
Thank you so much for putting config file.
I have just made it but will have to read what corrections do I need.
