Angry Wine - At The End of My Rope


running wine (20031016) on Redhat 9.0, compiled and installed.

here is my winecheck (non-root):

**************************************************************************************************** *********
This script verifies the configuration of the whole Wine environment.
Note that this is an ALPHA version, and thus it doesn't catch all problems !
The results of the checks are printed on the right side:
OK - test passed without problems.
NOTICE - Not a problem but something for the user to be aware of.
SUSPICIOUS - potentially problematic. You might want to look into that.
BAD - This is a problem, and it leads to configuration score penalty.
CRITICAL - A critical problem which can easily lead to malfunction.
FAILED - This problem leads to Wine failure almost certainly.

The result will be printed as a percentage score indicating config completeness.


------------------------- checking miscellaneous stuff -------------------------
001. Checking for root user... OK.

--------------------------- checking Wine base files ---------------------------
002. Checking for file "wine"... OK.
003. Checking for correct .so lib config (please wait)... SUSPICIOUS (libwine.so found 3 times: /usr/local/lib/libwine.so /usr/local/lib/libwine.so /usr/local/lib/libwine.so).
- ADVICE: check whether this is really ok.

----------------------------- checking config file -----------------------------
004. Checking config file access... OK.

>>> Checking drive A settings:
005. Checking Path option... OK.
006. Checking Type option... OK.
007. Checking device /dev/fd0... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive C settings:
008. Checking Path option... Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at ./winecheck line 394, <CFGFILE> line 38.
CRITICAL (directory is not accessible for you).
- ADVICE: If your user account is supposed to be able to access
it properly, use chmod as root to fix it ("man chmod"). If that doesn't help, change mount options in case of VFAT ("umask" option).
009. Checking Type option... OK.
010. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> PROBLEM.

>>> Checking drive D settings:
011. Checking Path option... OK.
012. Checking Type option... OK.
013. Checking device /dev/scd0... OK.
014. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive X settings:
015. Checking Path option... SUSPICIOUS (directory /tmp/mc-root is not accessible for you).
- ADVICE: If your user account is supposed to be able to access
it properly, use chmod as root to fix it ("man chmod"). If that doesn't help, change mount options in case of VFAT ("umask" option).
016. Checking Type option... OK.
017. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> PROBLEM.

>>> Checking drive Y settings:
018. Checking Path option... OK.
019. Checking Type option... OK.
020. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive Z settings:
021. Checking Path option... SUSPICIOUS (/ is not writable for you).
- ADVICE: If your user account is supposed to be able to access
it properly, use chmod as root to fix it ("man chmod"). If that doesn't help, change mount options in case of VFAT ("umask" option).
022. Checking Type option... OK.
023. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> PROBLEM.

--------------------- checking system devices used by Wine ---------------------
024. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... OK.
025. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... OK.
026. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... BAD (no kernel driver for /dev/sequenceror used by other program?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ------------------------
027. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... OK.
028. Checking availability of windows registry entries... NOTICE (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: A Windows registry does not seem to have been added to Wine as this typical Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not* be available with a no-windows install. Usually this will present no problem in running applications although this can affect newer programs. Feel free to ignore this message in case you do use a Windows registry, but have the SaveOnlyUpdatedKeys config setting set to N..

28 tests. 3 suspicious, 1 bad, 1 critical, 0 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 79.54%
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

All I get are Segmentation faults as root or otherwise...please help.

I'm no wine-expert, but I do use it from time to time..

your virtual C-drive isn't accessible, therefore you are not able to run any wine programs(this is like running windows without a harddisk to run it on...)
also your drive X doesn't work, you should fix this too.

you should atleast fix the C-drive thingy in your wine config file.

i finally was able to successfully run and install two programs:

WebFerret
Igor Engraver

but i'm having issues with ChessBase 8.0 & Fritz 7.x.

I read somewhere about a system.reg file on the Internet that would help with OLE/COM issues...anyone know where i can find it?

Thanks.
