Exclamation wine install problem


okay, i gunziped and tared the wine source that i downloaded from www.winehq.com, i used the winehq install guide (http://www.winehq.com/?page=howto) but i am running into a problem

when i go into xterminal not logged into root to install it (./tools/install) it says


wine installer v0.74

Running configure...

./configure: line 88: conf2413.sh: permission denied
./configure: line 89: conf2413.sh: permission denied
chmod: failed to get attributes of 'conf213.sh': No such file or directory
./configure: line 201: conf2413.file: permission denied
./configure: line 949: config.log: permission denied

Configure failed, aborting install

i tried installing it in root but it wouldnt let me, it said to do it as a normal user

What are the permissions on the installer files? Who owns them? Try to make the owner of all the files the same as the user you are going to use to install them.

Go into the directory where your wine install files are and do:

chown -R user *

change 'user' to the user you want to own the files. You can also use the 'chgrp' command to change the group ownership. It has the same syntax.

Tom, you need to install development tools - like gcc compiler and such, start from gcc - it is on Mandrake CD's, just manipulate the rpms either from command line or use the graphical tools such as krpm or gnorpm whichever suits you best, I'd suggest command line, open up an X-term and become root with
/bin/su -
then insert first CD into drive and mount it via
mount /mnt/cdrom
go to /mnt/cdrom
and navigate from there , you should see gcc-something.rpm try
rpm -ihv gcc-something.rpm and see the output if it complains about dependencies you should find them on CD and install them first again with
rpm -ihv rpm_name-yada-yada.rpm
Hope it helps
-Boris

ok i have wine installed (i think) i downloaded an RPM from codeweavers, because some website said it had an easier configuration tool or something

it all went in fine, no errors or anything (and no compiling on my part )

so how exactly do i use it now?
there arent any shortcuts put in the main menu for it

god i am so lost

p.s. Boris, i decided to try RedHat, i like it better so far

Oh, I didn't see you changed your profile. well, wine should be easy
wine /path/to/notepad.exe
should load notepad for instance. It's been some time when I tried wine, I am on VMWare right now for work stuff http://www.vmware.com you can try it for free 30-days after you either buy it for 300 bucks or you don't

ok when i try to open notepad it says:
"Wine has exited with failure status of 1"
what does that mean?

then after i close that another window comes up that says:
"wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-tom/server-302-18368 : no such file or directory"

all i want is photoshop and kazaa lite and if it wasnt too hard half-life, why does this have to be such a pain

Evidently you are running one of the latest releases of a particular distro. Most of they latest releases have an issue with wine which prevents wine from functioning correctly. I know redhat 9 has this problem, which is why wine(packaged with RH in all previous versions) did not ship with RH 9. Wine is suppose to create the directories and files itself, but with the latest versions, it's not creating those particular folders/files. To see what I mean, you can create the folders /tmp/.wine-tom/server-302-18368

That error is basically telling you that wine is looking for a file in those folders but the folder isn't there. Once you create the folder, it will give you another error, saying a file inside server-302-18368 is missing(no such file or directory). You can't create this file manually, wine is suppose to create it automatically. Hence wine is broken right now. My best suggestion would be to wait till wine releases a fix for this. There *might* already be a fix out, but after I had all these problems with RH 9, I formatted and installed Gentoo, which doesn't have any of these problems.

yeah im running RH 9

i have a copy of redhat 7.3 would it work there?

i also have a stripped down copy of redhat 8 that came with my linux for dummies book

and i have a mandrake 9 distro too

of all of these i would prefer using 7.3 if i couldnt use RH9

There has been a fix for this for months, but you have to enable it manually.

Basically, change the line at the top of ./tools/wineinstall which says:

CONFARGS=""

to

CONFARGS="--with-nptl"

then do make distclean, and run ./tools/wineinstall again.
