Decided to give linux a try but still wanted to be able to use a few of windows apps such as counter-strike ect... so I figured I would install "Wine" BUT! I am a n00b and have no idea what I am doing. I downloaded the rpm file for Red Hat 9 installed them... by typing rpm -i wine-YYYYMMDD-i386.rpm into the terminal, but now what....
any help would be great thanks..
I found a tutorial on google and followed the steps it told me to change some things in the config file basicly the same thing you just said above then told me to type wine -version when i typed that into the terminal i got back
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-root/server-302-59c093 : No such file or directory
I just read your post and yes, I also do have the same problem. I am not new to wine and have done quite some stuff with it, but BLAST what is that with this annoying error message?:
/tmp/.wine-[username]/server-301-73c9c : No such file or directory
I was searching the web and nobody seems to know anything about it.
Here my config and what I did:
RedHat 9, Wine 20030508 fresh from WineHQ, + devel.
Installed it with RPM, worked fine and then changed to a normal user and when running wine, I get this error. The command does not even work, so I hardly suspect any problems with the .config files.
What is going on here? Am I completely blind or is the installer broken? Or is it a problem with RH9? It used to work fine in other versions.
1) To test wine, run "notepad" from the command line (this is a wine builtin app). Then go get a simple test app like WinRar or something and try installing and running that, learn what you're doing. Most apps don't work correctly remember.
2) The wineserver message means you need to configure using --with-nptl
