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....

Well then how about posting your ~/.wine/config file and ask what your specific problem is? Your questions are quite general.

well the configfile is stored at /home/your_user_name/.wine/config

it's a plain text file and if it does not exist make one with an editor of your choice.

Then open a console and arrange the Editor and the console so that you can see them both at the same time and enter "man wine.conf" into the console.

Now add the settings - modified to suit your needs - save the configfile.

And try to run a program. A simple one like solitaire for instance.

If that doesn't work try to resolve the error and try again. Do that until it runs.

Wine is a bitch and you actually have to do these steps for basically every app you wanna run - if it will run at all.

Good luck

Same Wine Problem: /tmp/... no such file or dir

Hi

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.

Any pointers are welcome..

Thanks

Markus

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

Unhappy need to configure using --with-nptl

Please elaborate:

Where am I supposed to give this parameter? (I browsed through the doc and found no reference to it)
wine --version
should normaly work, right?

Well, it does not in my case. It always reports this error message mentioned above. This occurs in all different versions of wine.

I am pretty stuck and confused. Am I the only one with this error?

Cheers

Markus

No, lots and lots and lots of people have it. Search the archives, my answers to this tend to be short because I answer it literally every day

Talking Thanks, it worked!!

Hi

I did not configure it again, since it is a binary and there is not sourcecode to do again.

But the thing:

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

worked. Now at least wine will give a version number without crashing...

Thanks!!!

and the next click goes on the affero button.

Markus
