ok I have xwine installed and wineseuptk configured.
Im trying to RTFM but something (me being stupid or tired) is wrong.
From winehq.com You could run the file c:\windows\system\foo.exe with:
$ wine foo.exe
So I copy notepad from my XP machine to the virtual partition wine created
when I run "$wine notepad" I get: $ wine notepad
wine client error:9: version mismatch 131/139.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?
hmm ok so maybe I cant use wine.. maybe I need xwine???? so I try that from a prompt and it just starts the xwine application without notepad.
1) what am I doing wrong
2) is there something easier I can try to install/run?
Wine only works with Win9x compatable programs, NT programs won't work. The Wine I just installed came with it's own notepad , just typing notepad in the run line or a terminal will run it. My last wine wouldn't run it's note pad but blew me away with what it would run. This new version that I have runs notepad just fine, but nothing else will run, I guess I have to try to find the old RPM that I had.
long story short. i have clicked something in the GUI and even with the correct codex and other players i can not get RH9 now to play mp3, thus wine might be a good option if winamp will work in it and play my music for me.
it is something i have done, and there is a thread in this forum with what has been tried and failed.
yup xmms, i know but RH did something and i was stupid and clicked the do not show this again. now no matter what i install including the rpm for mp3 1.2.3 or what ever it is that 'bypasses' RHs lock on MP3s will not work.
