Just to let you know...

I will post a copy of mine when I get home.

To answer your questions:

I do not have a clue what version I downloaded, but it was about a month ago, and CVS, but I will check it out later as well and see what I find.

I installed from Xterm, I do everything as my normal user, unless required to use root.

I said /mnt/win

Oh, and I will give a new go at wineX on my (fresh) Mandrake system to see if I can walk you through it better.

Cool

Oh man! I forgot to post my problem... Sorry for the late notice.

On my mandrake box, I couldn't compile the CVS version, so I was thinking I'd give it a week and see if they get a bug worked out if that's the problem. I am getting ready to back and reinstall everything onto a new partitioning scheme, at that time I will be putting a new wineX on my slackbox, so then I'd be a bit more help.

Anyway, an update even though it really doesn't help too much.

Again, sorry about the late update, I should have posted this a few days ago.

Cool

I work like a mutha this week, but have at least 1 day off on the weekend, so that'll probably be the day. So either Sat or Sun next weekend.

Cool

I'll give your link a whirl first since I already know my way works

Oh, and I will probably be doing it starting as soon as I get up, I am "prepping" for it now

Well, I thought I had the ball rollin, but I was trying to do an install without an exisiting winbloze setup, and it's getting rough...

But anyway, to get you to where I am:

As root:
./tools/wineinstall

Once it gets to the end, NO no local config file, global to me is the only way to travel on a single user system.

Then when it says it hates you and quits because of the .wine/config file sucks, that's ok.

Simply open up the global config file (should be in /etc/.wine/config) and make a few changes:

first, choose your "C" drive location, and type it in using the FULL PATH, so it looks like you will want to say: /c there

Then make sure that the other variables are cool, like drive D is an actual location and such.

So now run ./tools/wineinstall again, this time saying no to local config, and it should finish from there... At least mine did, it found my global config file, read it, and finished happily.

Ok then from there I tried to run it, but got an error about /mnt/c (which is where I specified in my config file as my C drive) not having a C:windows\system32 file or something along those lines, so now I am working that out.

Will post back if I EVER figure it out, I've been trying for about an hour or so solid now, need a break to think about what I am not doing right...

Cool

k, ill give that a shot...

now i think i may have the solution for your problem...hopefully, hehe
in the wine config file, it specifies the system32 directory to be inside the windows folder, in the c directory...but i found there is no system32 dir, but there is a system dir, so by changing this in the config file, it seemed to make it happy (but still didn't run any windows programs, which im assuming earlier in the install didnt go right...ill try your way now )

Nada, meaning not a damn thing. I am now blaming the latest CVS release since this was a no brainer on my previous attempt on the same distro...

Really, last time it was:
./tools/wineinstall

Edit a config or 2 to show the directories I need, and BAM, it worked.

So, using this method of madness, I ventured on trying out the CVS version I used before, but I have already removed it from my system...

I find it easier to blame the CVS version than us Otherwise, I would say we are missing something VERY simple, since last time I had no "go by" or even a clue on what I was doing other than ./tools/wineinstall which I think I found by doing a search on this site.

If I do figure anything out though, I will post it ASAP. If it's a CVS problem, and I get a new one working sometime, I will let you know that as well.

Cool

ok, tah...

hmmm, so you think the problem wouldn't exist for the purchased version? maybe i should just go out and do that then...but that'd be a bit of stuffing around for arrangement of payment..

Might wanna wait... I'd give it a week or so, then try the latest CVS version.

Cool
