Wine/rh9


Hello
I am using redhat 9 and want to run windows based .exe files (every exe file) into linux. as I am facing a problem that is I have S3TRIO3D/2x VGA card which is not giving me the best performance in RH9. As at the time of LOGON for few seconds screen gets flicker and i could not enable the logon picture.

SO to install S3trio3d/2x drivers I have in .EXE format I wanted to INSTALL Wine as i am not getting these drivers in RPM format.


but worst part is WINE is not running EXE files as someone told me WINE does not work with RH9.

I tried to use WINETOOL to make logical drive. but i donot think to install drivers in RH9 i need to make logical windows drive..


Plz guide me abt it

ok well first quit while your ahead and just forget about the idea of installing your windows drivers for your video card in linux...that just isn't going to work no matter what you do...
second wine does run windows .exe file, but not all of them ... wine is still in its alpha stages of development and does not support every single exe file... it only has support for a limited amount of apps..
