install wine .9.20 to slackware 10.2 help?
tried to install wine with installpkg, and came up with a bunch of errors when i run "winecfg". can anyone recommend a work around to get it configured properly, or experiences/ techniques that did work. looking to get a built package working as opposed to compiling from source.
install worked ok (though apparently missing some config dialog):
my "c" partition is "fat-c" as per fstab. i'd like to set up a directory specific for wine. would a seperate partition (fat-c) be needed or would a directory (in linux) suffice labebled as "c:" work? would fstab, and mtab entries work along with registry mod be needed? please recommend how to go about configuring this?
btw, i've stfw, and only found one item specific, and the reply given was something like well it worked with my system :(. and i also tried to find posts here through the search engine, but received much unrelated.
thanks in advance!
some additional info during install attempts. picked up wine 0.9.20 files from here:
http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=9432 (wine-0.9.20-i486-1kjz.tgz) and here:
also noticed this:
there seems to be a lack of directory set up, and missing files. i manually created the .wine directory after the initial error stated it was missing. then upon looking in the .wine directory, it's a missing dos file(ie c: directories) which i'll assume is the problem right now.
i'll give 0.9.7 a try to see if it works
any machine integrity commands to verify that it's not my machine at issue would be helpful
update: 0.9.7 will load the graphical config tool when "winecfg" is entered at the console, whereas 0.9.20 doesn't.
there is still a problem when configuring the C drive partition though. i'll try manual entry in winecfg tool for mount point.
did "removepkg wine", and deleted leftover .wine directories, and reinstalled 0.9.7, ran "winecfg", and added "c" drive. looks like there is some progress being made. (recommended alternate was wine 0.9.9- couldn't find it, and tried 0.9.7 which looks to be OK).
