Winecfg *crashing* on sound tab?
tried to search around for this but could not find anything.
Problem: After compiling and installing wine, i run winecfg to set up the sound but as soon as i click on the sound tab winecfg crashes with following error:
wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x61eb6103 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 in 32-bit code (0x61eb6103).
I am running slack 11 (2.4), wine 0.9.23 (same error with 0.9.22)
Can it be coz am running ALSA and not OSS?
if yes, do i have to recompile the kernel to get the OSS?
any help would be greatfull...
It looks like it is a very common bug with wine. I'm having the exact same issue in Slackware 10.2. However, this does not appear to be Slackware specific. I've found a few links addressing this issue. It worked for a few peoples (not for me though)
Basically, do this:
- make sure that snd-seq module is loaded (modprobe snd-seq)
- make sure that winearts.drv.so is not being loaded. Rename it (mv <path_to_wine>/lib/winearts.drv.so /<path_to_wine>/lib/winearts.drv.so.old
There are some patches around to fix this issue. Apparently, wine tries to load all available drivers now and that is why it is crashing.
