Wine RedHat and an AMD K6-2


Anybody any Advice on getting an AMD K6-2 with RH9 to run wine? I've tried all three of the binaries on SourceForge, and they all give different errors.

Does anybody know how I can get it to work, if I compile the sources can I set it up for the K6-2 easily, and if so what's involved in doing this?

BTW I have RH9 and Wine working on a couple of other intel based machines so I've got the basics right, just need help with this dodgy old processor :-)

TIA

Dave

It works OK when compiled from source. Just standard procedure.

Maybe you're missing certain dependencies?

I've only tried the binaries so far, I was hoping one of those might work, I'll double check the dependencies before I try the source compilation method.

man. Just given you've gotten wine running on rh9, count yourself lucky. I've been trying for a while now and haven't gotten Diablo II or quicken to work yet.

If the i386 rpm didn't work for you, you probably will have to compile from source.

You could try using apt-get with wine repositories

Here:

http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/redhat...0408-1.src.rpm

Add this at your /etc/apt/source.list or source.list.rpmsave. The update your apt-get:

apt-get update

and install wine:

apt-get install wine

It cannot get any easier then that, assuming you know what apt-get/synaptic are

I can install the rpms, or compile from source just fine. Getting it to do anything else is the tricky part.

Well...I have an AMD K6 400 MHz too...and I am proud to say that it still rocks!....Infact I have seen many of the P3 500 MHz machines suck in terms of performance when compared with my AMD...

Anyways....So I have AMD K6 400 Mhz, RedHat 9 and wine too....and it works fine...although I havent been successful in getting MS Office 2000 to work...but thats another issue...

There are basically 2 types of wine distributions around.....

1. The one developed by Wine HQ
2. One developed by CodeWeavers

I did a search before I was to install wine on my system and I found that Codeweavers wine was working well with RedHat 9...However after that, Wine HQ also released their version for RH 9.....

I have the codeweaver's wine and it installed without any errors...Then I downloaded the 'winetools' from frankscorner.org and created the ~/.config file and the fake_windows partition using it. so I have had no problem installing small applications like notepad, solitaire, freecell, Winamp 2.91 and JetAudio 4.81.

Try installing codeweavers wine on your AMD....and RH 9 of course!......(my version was codeweaversxxxxx-20020904.i386.rpm)
sorry...i dont remember the exact name....but hope that will help...

Strange that everybody is using winetools to make a fake_c drive. When I installed the rpm, I simply tried to run an application as

wine kazaa.exe

and Wine automatically created the directories (into ./wine) added the dll's and everything. The first time takes a long time to make it to load the application (creating fonts and everything) but after that it runs flawless. The same applied for WineX for me. It self-created ./transgaming drive with dll's and everything at Redhat 7.3, 9.0, Slackware 9.0 and now JAMD... (?).

Thanks guys, I can confirm that none of the RPM for RedHat9 work with a K6-2 However once I downloaded the sources and compiled them locally all is working fine.

Thanks for the help.
