CVS version of winex not running

Hi all, and thnx in advance.

I've installed winex from cvs using the instructions found @ frank's corner how to:

after installing the config file provided, I try to run, and get:

[mike@Gandalf mike]$ wine notepad
wine: chdir to /home/mike/.wine/wineserver-Gandalf.MIDEARTH : No such file or directory

so I made the directory and some other files to finally get to the point where:

[mike@Gandalf mike]$ wine notepad
wine: '/home/mike/.wine/wineserver-Gandalf.MIDEARTH/socket' is not a socket

At this point I'm lost. I went and got the winesetuptk and tried to set up my config file that way, but still no joy in mudville. Any Suggestion?

Open your system monitor and end/kill all wine and wineserver processes. There's probably one or more running, but they may be invisible to the System Monitor until you log out and back in. Running the top command in a terminal might reveal them.

You could also try a killall -9 wine in a terminal.

In any case once you have all the wine processes ended, go into your ~/.wine folder and delete the socket file in wineserver-Gandalf.MIDEARTH.

Then you should be able to run winex again without that error occurring.

See Linux Game Tome :: View topic - Installing of games and wine-users mailing list: Re: Wine config difficulties.

Good luck.
