WINE on Mandrake 9.1


I've been having trouble getting WINE to work on Mandrake 9.1, so when I read that I could install it using RPM Drake in the Mandrake Control Centre, I thought Yay this'll be easy!
So I went and searched for WINE and selected all the packages and told it to install, and it asked for the CDs it wanted and all went fine and then BOOM! it said "Conflicts Detected: libntdll.dll is needed by libwine1-20030115-4mdk
wine = 20030115 is needed by wine-utils-20030115-4mdk"
How can I solve this - I have a copy of libntdll.dll but I don't know how to give it to libwine, can someone please help?!

Thanks in advance

Hi there Thewyzewun

The first thing to do is remove all wine related package you have on your system. They are all old junk shipped with most of the distributions. Make also sure to remove .wine or .fake_c if you have these directories. When done, get always the newest wine here:

www.winehq.com

Install with rpm -ivh <name_of_package.rpm>

It's used to be smooth . If you are unware of how to install programs in Linux, check this thread out:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=45094

Try also to forget fancy tools provided by Mandrake/Redhat to install programs. If you get too used with it, you will miss the best of Linux, command line. Sooner or later, you may want to give another distro a shot too, as Redhat. There you have a new bunch of different tools, but the command line is the same to any distro. Also, after a while it gets hard to fix problems with those tools Just a little tip

Good luck!!

Thanks very much! I made sure everything was clear and then downloaded the rpm like you said, but it had some files it needed so I downloaded a src.rpm from rpmseek and installed that and then installed the .rpm and it works now! All I need to do is set up the fake c drive, so I'm off to frankscorner.com and I'll probably have it working within 20 mins

Well, I've done everything I said before plus created a wine directory in my home folder (im running as root (im gonna reformat in a few months and get a different distro, and I'm not worried about security because theres nothing that i cant get again on here), and i've created a fake c_drive as described in the howto @ www.winehq.org, but when i type wine notepad.exe at the command line i get:

fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support for it ?
fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support for it ?
fixme:reg:_nt_dump_lf unknown Win XP node id 0x686c: do we need to add support for it ?
err:heap:HEAP_GetPtr Invalid heap (nil)!
err:heap:HEAP_GetPtr Invalid heap (nil)!
fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.

and Microsoft Visual Basic C++ Runtime Library brings up an error (in its own program window, not at the command line):

Program C:/WINDOWS/system32/notepad.exe
R6016
- not enough space for thread data.

Could this have anything to do with my having Windows on another partition (it doesn't boot at the moment, im not sure yet whether to format it or not, I keep remembered bits of data I want off it!)?

I've now got WINE working (at least with Notepad, I don't have anything else to test it with!) what I did was I deleted my windows partitions from the partition table using the mandrake control centre, and created about 50GB of extra space for Linux whilst I was @ it and then uninstalled WINE using rpmdrake and then did a whereis wine and found all traces left and deleted them, and then did the same for .wine and deleted the config files out of my path, and then typed wine notepad.exe as I had before and notepad opened with no error messages
