WINE > Kazaa / Shareaza (READ... HELP!)


OK heres the scope

KaZaA won't run under WINE -- claims its windows 95

I can't change the way it identifies itself either -- Open up WINE config select to emulate win2k and click OK (the apply is greyed out and i think thats what makes the changes apply, not OK)

I even tried editing /home/jon/.wine/config and uncommenting the part that tells itself to identify as win98 -- still kazaa says not compatible with 95 upgrade to windows 98

---
So I said screw Kazaa tried another P2P client called shareza
[jon@localhost Shareaza]$ wine Shareaza.exe
err:module:import_dll Module (file) MFC42.DLL (which is needed by F:\wine\prog\Shareaza\Shareaza.exe) not found
[jon@localhost Shareaza]$

Can't find the DLL anywhere -- am I out of luck?

--

I'm going to try morpheus (the gnutella one..) and then try grokster too, hopefully one will work


REPLY TO THIS!!
THX


Can't find the DLL available for download anywhere

ok ok where to start....
first i will state that there is nuuumerous programs in linux for file sharing and i'll leave it at that...
second you should leave the identifer as win98, and don't change it...
third here are the instructions on installing kazaa with wine:
Kazaa2.1
Kazaa2.1.0
fourth here is a site to get dll's:
click here for dll's
and lastly here is the dll your missing from the site i stated above:
mfc42 dll

oh and i guess i shall add that you shouldn't have to try more p2p programs with wine as there is very many for linux, and they all do the same thing

your almost correct...if you re-read the installation instructions it says, your "system" folder not your "system32" folder....so it will be the same path as you mentioned minus the 32 :P

I just installed wine-20030618-mdk9.1.i586.rpm And got the dll's mentioned above.

But I don't have a /wine/system folder. There is however a /wine/wine/ folder containing *.dll.so files.

Do I just place them into there?

well if there is a c drive and a windows folder after /wine/wine then yes i would imagine that this is your folder....so if it is something like /wine/wine/c/windows/system then yes thats it...but by the sounds of how your talking it doesn't seem to be like that, and it also doesn't seem that you even got anything to run with wine...i'd advise you to go download winetools and let it create the fake wine directory for you...
you can click on the link in my sig for frankcorner, that program is linked in that site.

No there's no other folders inside the second wine folder. I ran wine-20030618-mdk9.1.i586.rpm by clicking it in the explorer like app (forgot it's name, On xp now)

I thought I'd start afresh and so I opened a terminal and typed rpm -e win Then I downloaded wine-20030709 binaries for mand 9.1 but I get errors when I ./tools/wineinstaller
The errors seem to be missing confXXXX.sh files.

( http://www.elitelinux.com/viewtopic.php?t=666 )

So I cannot install wine :/

well if you go get the rpm again and double click it then it will be installed and all you will be left to do is setup your fake windows drive...and like i said above you can go get winetools to do this for you and its as simple as clicking a button instead of going through it manually...i find when you do it manually anyways it always exits on errors when trying to run something even though you did set it up properly...it has happened with me and many others...so i strongly recomment winetools after getting wine installed...if you use the rpm you won't have to go through the wineinstaller and all that crap...i can honestly say that wine is the only thing i have seen out there so far that its actually better to use an rpm then to build it from source....

Thanks DrOzz
I'll re-download the rpm (If I can find it again) and search for winetools too.
Thanks again.

look no further
http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/
just scroll down and click on mandrake and it'll bring you to the next page with all the different downloads...you'll plainly see the rpm in the list....GL!
ps -> i say mandrake cause thats what your distro says MrTickle if that is not correct then you obviously will know thats not the one you need

Winetools installed kazaa, But this tutorial http://www.frankscorner.org/kazaa_li..._0_build3.html says to Type wine kpp.exe in the installation directory to run Kazaa Lite

When I open a terminal it wont cd to the install folder because it's hidden.

Hidden folders usually got a dot before them such as .hidden

so just type cd .hidden

or... is WINE the one that is having trouble cd'n to a hidden folder?

Hey drozz

[AppDefaults\\kazaa.exe\\DllOverrides]
"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "native"
"shdoclc" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"

Where do I put that? Where is the location of the wine config file?

The wine config file is in /home/mike/.wine in my case. Make sure you have show hidden files on.

As for where those lines go, winetools has placed them right near the end of the file for me. Next to the other AppDefaults settings.
