winetools/wine problem with fallout 2


I've got the latest winetools (as of 29/9/2003) and I am running the defualt version on wine that come with Mandy 9.1

I've just tried to install fallout 2, when I choose the setup.exe file and click install nothing happens the box where the path to setup.exe is simply cleared and nothing happens, I've tried to install DCOM98 but I always get a installation failed message.

Any ideas people?

Well, the first thing you've to do is to remove your wine. Chances are that Mandrake shipped with a pretty old version of wine (Mandy is not so new either anymore).
In second, if you are willing to run games, wine will make things pretty difficult sometimes. I recommend winex for games:

As you can see here: http://www.transgaming.com/gamepage.php?gameid=54

Fallout 2 works just fine. If you still want to try with wine, get a new one here:

www.winehq.com

There might be packages for Mandy 9.1 there.
Good luck!

Yes but you have to pay don't you?

But how do I install this CSV thing? I am not a techie and I've never compiled anything in my life (at least to my knoledge).

Can anyone give me FAQ or something to help and install it?

With CVS is free, precompile packages are not. I've never had to compile WineX, because I have pre-compiled packages . Here are some good tutorials:

Downloading WineX CVS:

Go to your shell:


1) Loggin in into CVS server (when asked for a password press enter):

$ cvs -dserver:anonymous@cvs.winex.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/winex login


2) Getting CVS sources:

$ cvs -z3 -dserver:anonymous@cvs.winex.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/winex co wine

A more detailed tutorial about downloading and installing WineX is here:

Another WineX CVS install tutorial:

General info about installing programs from source (compiling) and other ways, this is a nice thread:

Good luck!
