if you go to the SuSE 9.1 ftp site there is a version there. also, winehq.org will have the most up to date version avail.

if you installed SuSE already, it may have installed wine for you. have you checked...

try the whereis command

whereis wine

It could be under something like

~/.wine/fake_windows

cd to that dir and the rest should be easy to find

Unhappy wine is not working!

Hello All,

I'm new to linux (RH9) so bear with me but I'm having a problem running wine with a linux training cd I purchased from spidertools.com. I have a dual boot system (winxp and rh9 with grub running nice). I installed the latest wine release (wine-20040914-1rh9winehq.i366.rpm) from terminal. No obvious errors. I change to my CD-ROM directory to access the windows executable /mnt/cdrom1 and type "wine basic.exe". I now get the following error:

wine: '/root/.wine' created successfully.
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
WineDbg starting on pid 0x8
Unhandled exception: divide by zero in 32-bit code (0x403961f5).
In 32 bit mode.
0x403961f5: idivl 0xffffffc4(%ebp),%eax
Wine-dbg>

I'm stuck in debug mode. I looked in the spidertools website (http://spidertools.com/wine_setup.php) and I don't see the /usr/share/wine-c folder for the windows directory structure. Could this be the problem? Any HELP would be very much appreciated. BTW.......I'm an MCP converting to Linux.

Thanks,
dpbRH

Superme: no, Slackware doesn't have installers. Slackware is a distro for whom operating systems is a hobby, really. If you want installers and things being easy to use don't use Slackware, use Fedora or something.
