Question Wine & Kazaa


I am trying to make kazaa run under wine. i have located a link with full instructions but when running wine, whatever options I use I get a message saying things like:

[root@Petes My Documents]# wine
wine: cannot open /root/.wine : No such file or directory
[root@Petes My Documents]# wine kazaa_lite_210_kpp_edition_english_build3.exe
wine: cannot open /root/.wine : No such file or directory

I installed wine from the mandrake specific rpm, but never got a confirmation of install message, so I don't know if it is in properly. It has a directory for wine under /usr/lib/wine, but apart from that no clues.

AHMA

Post Same thing happens

When I try to run winecfg I get the same error. How do I check if it is in my path?

forget about the path, that thing there was not correct, this ' /root/.wine' is wine's configuration directory, which winecfg should create. it really can't be that winecfg gives you the exactly same error message that wine if you try to run it. or, if it gives, don't ask me whats wrong

Also... why do you even have .wine installed to /root?? The tools/wineinstall utility says, or used to say, NOT to install wine as the root user.

The actual wine binary should live in /usr/local/bin if you didn't send it somewhere else.

Lightbulb Problem Solved

Ahh in fact you were all thinking too technically. On your first wine install it is advisable to run wwinesetuptk, found at the bottom of the sourceforge links page for wine downloads.

This asks some questions and automatically creates the /.wine/config file needed to run

Ta all
