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
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... (?).
