wine problems


when i try to run wine, i get the following error:

~/.wine not found

the installation and build went fine. winecheck gives me these horrible problems:

--------------------------- checking Wine base files ------------------
001. Checking for file "wine"... OK.
002. Checking for correct .so lib config (please wait)... Use of unin
value in split at ./winecheck line 232.
DEBUG: found libwine: /usr/local/lib/libwine.so
OK.

----------------------------- checking config file --------------------
003. Checking config file access... readline()
filehandle CFGFILE at ./winecheck line 482.
FAILED (/home/liam/.wine/config does not exist).
- ADVICE: it is ok in case you have ~/.winerc. If you don''t, then you'
ouble !.

--------------------- checking system devices used by Wine ------------
004. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... OK.
005. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... OK.
006. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... BAD (no ker
r for /dev/sequencer?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/m
t.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ---------------
007. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... grep: /home
ne/system.reg: No such file or directory
CRITICAL (entry "SHAREDMEMLOCATION" not found in system.reg registry fi
- ADVICE: file winedefault.reg doesn't seem to have been applied using
008. Checking availability of windows registry entries... grep: /home
ne/system.reg: No such file or directory
CRITICAL (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: Windows registry does not seem to be added to Wine, as this t
ndows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. This can affect
er programs. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not*
ble with a no-windows install, of course, so you'll have to live with t

8 tests. 0 suspicious, 1 bad, 2 critical, 1 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 10.30%



i don't know where to start! that's a really really bad score.

go to the wine directory, type in

head -n 25 README

you have to run a program in the tools directory to setup everything. they mention it in the first 25 lines of the README file...

Hi, are you running wine, or did you get the CVS of wineX and compile it? I got a much better score than that, like 80% and that was from a fairly basic straight forward compile of wineX. It is using my winbloze partition as the C, so wine C and winbloze C are in actuality the same drive, and the same for "D". I don't know if that makes a pence worth of difference, but maybe it's something. Also, if you are running wine without also having winbloze installed, and wine is using "fake winbloze" then that might also account for some error.

Cool
