just wondering if winex is worth the download. what is it capable of? i'm looking for a windows emulator. i want to run games as well as adobe photoshop. all i';ve found so far over the net is transgaming, but that has a subscription and seems kinda buggy. are there any other emulators out there capable of running gameslike counterstrike? any info would be most appreciated
i am new to linux but was wondering if I can load and install my windows games on a 'pure' linux system. I have heard about wine and winex but unsure if they allow you to install the game onto the hard drive or just run
please help me convert to linux

Nope. Not on a "pure" Linux system. And with regards to WineX... I think it deserves a nice HOWTO...
so how does the linux community play the lastest game releases, if the game developers only create on the windows os. I have asked westwood but they rudely informed me that the min requirement for there games was windows 98 ( no good for me )
I currently use winex. I decided to give it a try because I was tired of having to boot into windows to play games (which I do often). So far I have used it to play BG2:Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal and have found that it works perfectly. To give a little setup, I have both of these installed in my linux environment. They are not loaded in windows at all. I have found that winex is a nice way to play games under linux.

Is there some way of finding out in which shared object "Dosvm" is located?
I found out by using ldd on the wine executable that the problem was caused by old left-over libraries from a previous wine installation. They happened to be in /usr/lib while the new ones were in /usr/local/lib.
But if someone can tell me, I'd still like to know if it is possible to search shared libraries for a certain symbol and if so, how?
