Wine problem


I have installed wine on RH9. I run the wine command by itstelf (which should give me a help listing) and I get this error:

wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-bigun/server-302-2846a : No such file or directory

I would say it was the distro of wine but I have tried different versions with the same result.

Help!

i can't even believe how many people get that error, and i would love to know how you guys do it...but then again it seems like everyone that does get that error, they are using rh9, so my question to you is, did you use the newly released rpm package specifically built for redhat 9...

One of them said it was. But you know how that goes. If you posted a link to a wine version built for RH9 I have no quams trying it.

Are you on a dual boot system? What is the other o.s. I'm using win98 /redhat 8.0 and i'm using Codewaevers wine. i HAVE TO HAVE MY WINDOWS PARTITON MOUNTED IN ORDER TO DO THIS. this occured after I used apt to update rh 8.0. before that I was able to use wine on a linux only basis. My backup system is only rh 8.0 with no update and wine works fine on it. If your using rn 9.0 you may have to use codeweavers wine on your system. I found it easiest to use the windows files via the mount /mnt/windows command.

copy your files to the directory /usr/share/wine-c/ and then do
wine nameofthefile.exe

that should solve the problem,

if not let me know

I'll give the new wine a shot.

And I have windows 98 installed on another partition. And it is setup as the default windows directory.

if your talking about your actual windows partition being your default for wine, then thats just dumb...just as wrong as running wine as root....they specify this stuff on their site and people do it and wonder why things go wrong....

How is this dumb exactly? Wine is getting its default registry as well as the dll's it needs and to boot saves space. Heck, codeweavers even suggests doing it!! Where am I losing?

I still haven't got a solid answer. I'm not running as root, so that can't be it. Could it corrupt my Windows partition? Probably not, and even if it did I wouldn't care. Why is it inappropriate?

i remember seeing it somewhere on the www.winehq.com site, so i just thought if it is on the products official homepage it would be legit info to tell someone ... you can look into it.

I had the same problem before. Type this in your shell prompt:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
Put it in your shell start up file so you don't have to type this everytime you open a new shell.
