Wine in Slackware: my solution to random freeze issue
Had been trying to run Wine for a while, tried versions X, Y and Z, and every version would install and run fine except that within one to fifteen minutes I would encounter a hard freeze, requiring a reboot.
Now I have not had a freeze, just program specific bugs.
My solution was half accidental, I was kinda missing my mouse wheel (been lazy) so decided to enable it.
I changed this:
# Option "ChordMiddle"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
and my wine works! .....
I have noticed that this freezing error is rare and slackware doesn't auto enable the wheel, so if U are using slack and cannot use wine well, check your drivers are correct. Would like to hear if this helps anyone else with similar issue.
