Running Wine

Hello, I installed Wine from RPM today (version 20020411) on a Suse 8.0 box and the installation went fine.

However, when I tried to run a simple application, say, windows calculator, wine returned with error messages

>> wine /windows/C/windows/system32/calc.exe
err:module:PE_fixup_imports Module (file) KERNEL32.dll (which is needed by C:\windows\system32\msvcrt.dll) not found
err:win32:PE_LoadLibraryExA can't load C:\windows\system32\msvcrt.dll
err:module:MODULE_LoadLibraryExA Loading of native DLL C:\windows\system32\msvcrt.dll failed (error 14), check this file.
I then used a scrip that validates Wine's installation called winecheck

----------------------------- checking config file -----------------------------

020. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... OK.
021. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... OK.
022. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... OK.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ------------------------
023. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... CRITICAL (entry "SHAREDMEMLOCATION" not found in system.reg registry file).
- ADVICE: file winedefault.reg doesn't seem to have been applied using regapi.
024. Checking availability of windows registry entries... CRITICAL (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: Windows registry does not seem to be added to Wine, as this typical Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. This can affect many newer programs. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not* be available with a no-windows install, of course, so you'll have to live with that..

24 tests. 0 suspicious, 0 bad, 2 critical, 0 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 72.25%
I don't know about the registry enteries, this is where I'm lost. Any help is highly appreciated!

Try the codeweavers wine package, it comes in an rpm and has a nifty gui setup utility called winesetup.
