Looks like your configuration (if any) is wrong.

You are better off using Cadega from Transgamming to get those games working. The problems with Cadega is you have to use kernel version 2.4.x because kernel version 2.6.x screws up the encryption that is on the CD. I suggest using Mandrake 9.2 or find a way to use kernel version 2.4.x.

You should first try wine notepad. This will make a fake Windows directory structure and run notepad. If it works then you can install winetools and try to get your games running. Not be harsh, you will not be able get those games running because most of them are dependent on the CD during the game.

well i now installed wine trough the graphic and console method but when i configure it with

3.2.1. wineinstall

wineinstall is a small configuration tool residing as tools/wineinstall in a Wine source code tree. It has been written to allow for an easy and complete compilation/installation of Wine source code for people who don't bother with reading heaps of very valuable and informative documentation ;-)

Once you have successfully extracted the Wine source code tree, change to the main directory of it and then run (as user):

$ ./tools/wineinstall

Doing so will compile Wine, install Wine and configure the Wine environment (either by providing access to a Windows partition or by creating a properly configured no-windows directory environment).
then it gives me this error

bash: ./tools/wineinstall: No such file or directory
i tried it on normal user mode, wich should be, and also tried as root, none are working

Like i said before im on mandrake 10.2

Any1 can help?

Cheers Tester
