wine problem


Lastly I attempted to use wine for the first time.
I wanted to try and install Nero Burning Rom since I read posts stating that it worked under wine.
I launched the installer and got a number of errors during the process, but I read up and found a solution to them I think.

Problem is, I did a dist upgrade with synaptic a few days ago and now wine won't start up anymore, I get this weird error

wine: relocation error: /usr/lib/wine/libntdll.dll.so: symbol __fork, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

I found a webpage talking about that very same error message
http://www.winehq.org/fom-meta/cache/827.html
but it doesn't make much sense, I tried adding the lines to my .bash_profile and it didn't work ....

Anyone an idea?

Thanks.

Hmmm ... the only ideas I have is to ask you
how you installed your wine, and I don't think
that the link you posted has got anything to do
with your problem :}

Cheers,
Tink

I selected wine at the Red Hat 8.0 install so didn't install it afterwards, and I uninstalled it and reinstalled with apt-get.

The link I posted is the only one I found with the exact error AND related to wine.
But I think I narrowed it down a little, one of the things I upgraded was glibc and I read a few posts about broken applications after upgrading glibc.

I haven't got any clue about how to solve this though.
I downloaded and installed compat-glibc for Red Hat 7.3 in the hope that it would provide some level of compatibility but it didn't work either

Maybe recompile Wine on your system?

Read again mate :)

That's not the same error, the one on the website
says nothing about GLIBC versions ;) ... it's about
internal functions of wine, namely printing debug output.

Rebuilding/recompiling wine sounds like
the way to go, though.

Cheers,
Tink

Well now that you mention it
I'd like to try and solve this without having to build wine myself, if I do that rpm won't know a thing about wine and I like the functionality I get with apt-get and synaptic for upgrading packages.

But if there's no other way I guess I will try to build it

You can use SourceRPMs ...

Ok, I'll try that but I think the problem will persist.
On http://www.winehq.org/download/, it says "Linux glibc-2.2 Systems", that's the version I had when it was still working.

Now I have glibc 2.3.2-4.80.
I'll try to grab the latest rpm from Sourceforge.

Edit: it worked, thanks all.
I downloaded tha last rpm package from Sourceforge, installed it and the error was gone.
Thanks.

2nd edit: I'm configuring Nero right now, for those who are interested I followed the instructions of this url
http://www.frankscorner.org/nero_5590.html
