Arrow RH9 - WINE problem


I installed wine from the wine-20030618-1rh8winehq.athlon.rpm and ran winetools to set up the fake windows directory, but when I go to open a program with wine I get this:
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-root/server-3842-8c0af : No such file or directory

should I try reinstalling wine or what? feel free to ask for more info if I didn't give enough

well all i can say is your using the package built for redhat 8, and according to your distro you are using redhat 9...so if in fact you are using redhat 9 then thats your problem, with you getting the wrong package and i recommend you going to the sourceforge site and grabbing the new rpm that was built for redhat 9 and then go from there.

I got the new version installed and once again ran the winetools to make sure everything was up to date, but I still can't launch a Windows application. I tried opening just a random .exe on my C drive from Windows:

Warning: could not find wine config [Drive x] entry for current working directory /mnt/windows; starting in windows directory.
wine: cannot find 'txp-patch.exe'

I don't know what I need to configure to make it work, any futher help will be greatly appreciated.

I have that same problem with Wine....however, do this....wherever you decided to place the "windows" directory that it asked you to in the install....i put it in /home/(myusername)......and any .exe file in that directory will work using wine...otherwise I get that "could not find wine config" error.....And when you do this..you may have another problem which is the "chdir......" error. To fix this, you have to type this command in "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5"....then you can use wine with an .exe app in that "windows" directory. I got the export command from searching the forum for people who have wine problems....lots of people out there w/ the same problem that you originally had and the one you have right now...search around here if what i suggested doesn't work..you may find something.

my next question is...if I wanted to launch a game or something, how would I go about doing that? should I use winetools to "install" the game to the "windows" directory in my /home/user directory?

I was able to launch notepad no problem with that export command (thanks a lot).

no you should set up a fake windows drive...its usually located in your home diretory (ex -> /home/user/.wine/c ) notice .wine is a hidden folder so your not going to see it with a simple "ls" execution..i don't know if you know that or not, so i thought i would say it....anyways, with wine tools you should see create fake drive in one of the options...do that and setup the fake drive and setup your programs there.

yeah, the drive is already made and setup, I'm just wondering if I need "install" the Windows program with winetools or just copy the executable from my windows drive to the fake windows drive to run it
