Cedega Error


tar -zxvf cedega_4.0-1.i386.tgz

After extracting out, I manually copied the files and folders inside to their respective directories in my system.

Then when I tried running steam setup, i got the following error.
cedega steaminstall_cs.exe

http://revenant.qsurf.org/cedega.jpg

I did not edit any config files or whatsoever.

btw, can someone explain the config file to me? Don't quite understand.

[Drive C]
"Path" = "@C_DRIVE@"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "Dos Drive"
"Filesystem" = "win

[wine]
"Windows" = "c:\\windows"
"System" = "c:\\windows\\system32\\"
"Temp" = "e:\\"
"Path" = "c:\\windows\\;c:\\windows\\system32\\"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"

thanx

There's a further explanation in the snapshot you showed:
Quote:
"Your system requires the use of pthreds but the maximum allowed stack of 2052 kb may be too small for some games.
If you experience problems, try rerunning with "-use-pthreads-no" which may help"
So, it's pretty clear: Type "cedega steaminstall_cs.exe -use-pthreads-no" and see if that helps .

PS: so WineX has changed name to cedega? Cool, I did not know that

It did not work either. The file size thingy still present.

Being on Slackware, instead of untarring it and all that jazz, you could've just

$ installpkg cedega_4.0-1.i386.tgz

But whatever floats your boat, it shouldn't really matter, but if you need to remove the package, it would be much easier to do it that way. As far as your question, I haven't the slightest clue. Have you checked the WineX (Cedega) game list and forums/FAQs for steam? You can check it out here.

Do I need to place the file in the /packages folder?

So, previously I've did the untarring. Now, can I just install the package to "overwrite" the previous files?

You would install it just as you would a package obtained from linuxpackages.net, just installpkg it, and you can delete it after you're done. I'm pretty sure it will just overwrite the previous files, so I'd recommend installpkg'ing it. I doubt it will solve your problem, but .tgz packages are meant to be installed that way (think of it as rpm is to Red Hat, as .tgz is to Slackware). If you'd like some more information, check out the Slackware Book on the subject of package management.

Sigh, same problem.

Thanx for the help anyway.

I knew the whole installpkg wouldn't solve your problem, its just if you install it that way, its a gazillion times easier to upgrade/remove/view what packages you have on the computer.

I think you have 99,9% problem with the "steaminstall_cs.exe" file. Download it again with some download manager or using firefox down. manager. Your file is simply corrupted, or incorrectly downloaded.

But I have been installing this file more than 10 times before already in Windows?

If you have that binary file of Cedega, you must also be able to access the binary of Point2Play. Remove your Cedega version, download+install Point2play, configure Cedega in Point2play, open a new install in Point2play, install steam.

I got another similiar message after installing Point2Play.

Looks like Slackware is the culprit?
