Wine


Hi there,


Finally back, running SuSE 9.0 with 3D (on my old GeForce) I wanted to install RTCW. So I used wine for the setup. But in the setup I get an error: I need DCOM for Win95. I configured my wine config file to 'emulate' winxp, but it seems like all apps still believe running on win95 (I ran some testapps, they said win95).

Hope somebody can help me, thanks!

There is a Linux client for RTCW that works pretty well. Download the correct installer here and follow the instructions that are included. You have to copy specific files off the CDs but it's not too bad.

Yeah I got this file before, thanks, and it works. But as I read you get these files you need only from an installation, 'cause they are compressed in the exe (it's >600 megs large!).
So I need to run the setup using wine.

yeah, i'm having the same trouble. I have found that wine doesn't know what xp or 98 are so it decideds to go with default instead, which is 95. the problem i'm having is getting wine to know what 98 or xp are and to stay that way. here is some of the msgs i get:

Drive A: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive C: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive D: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive E: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive F: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive Z: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.


does anyone know what i have to do to fix this? thnx

DCOM is only needed on Win95 Systems. But I want to run a 98 or 2k or whatelse, cause many new progs dont't run on 95.

@ambelos:
This part is only the file system! win95 stands for FAT/FAT16/FAT32, DONT change this!!
There's another part found in the file where you can enter the selected OS. its somewhere AFTER this part, dont know exactly where at the moment...

ohhhhh, ok. so i'm not supposed to change the filesystem? ok, good, then there is sitll hope. there is still a reason for me to fool with this :-D so, just to make sure...we are both on the same page, right? we are both trying to figure out how to emulate 98 or higher, and not 95, right?

well first you should have the config stating that your using win98 to have the most "luck" getting stuff to work, and secondly if you wanna get picky about dcom version, then go install dcom98, it don't matter. .. the fact of the matter is, is that the error states you need it ?

I tried Win98 and higher entries, but none of them helped. You know, for this app I need DCOM, but if there's wine to win98 configured, most apps (like Derive 6) tell me that they can't be run on win95 systems. But the config file IS configured to win98...

d00d ?
the line is commented ...
notice the
;
in front of the line ....
so even though you changed it, your not using it ...
so change :
;"Windows" = "win98"
to be
"Windows" = win98"

yeah, i never changed that cause i always thought that that was supposed to be there. i installed winex, and was trying that. i fixed a few errors that i had, and now it seems to be sorta working. except, when i try to run install.exe, it just starts spitting a bunch of crap out, and then all of a sudden it just gives me a segmentation fault. do you think i should uninstall it and reinstall wine and try it there again? thnx
