Have you set up the drives properly. I find it easier to manually edit the wine.conf file. I have set up the conf file to say /DOS is youre dos partition (mounted as vfat, i.e mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 /DOS ), /cdrom as cd, /a as floppy, then type wine /DOS/MAABUS/MABBUS.EXE and the game works, don't know if that'll be any help to you though.

OK I been doing some reading and its noted that you can put the wine.conf file two places.


/usr/local/etc/wine.conf
A systemwide config file, used for anyone who doesn't have their own. NOTE: this file is currently unused as a new global configuration mechanism is not in place at this time

$HOME/.wine/config
Your own config file, that only is used for your user.

So copy your version of the wine.conf file to /usr/local/etc/wine.conf or $HOME/.wine/config for wine to recognize it.



I was wondering if anyone can post there wine.conf file so I can compare?

you can run wine from inside X. if you open a file browser (ie, konqueror) you can select the program you want to run, right click, clect run with and type in wine and select winelauncher and it should go if the program is compatable.

You don't have winesetup because it's part of CodeWeavers Wine, you can find it at CodeWeavers

Unhappy

Still no GO? When I run winelaucher I get
Welcome to to Wine
I press "Cofigure Wine"
Error: Unable to find winesetup in your PATH or in /opt/wine/bin

Ok does this mean I have to install Codeweavers WIne
Cause when I try to install the RPM I get this error
rpm -ivh codeweavers-wine-20011108-5.i386.rpm
errror: failed depenencies:
wine conflicts with codeweavers-wine-20011108-5

what do I do now?

In your home directory you need to create a directory named /.wine (note, there's a period before the wine) then run the winelauncher and do a config from there.

Find the wine package in Red Hat's package manager, then remove it and reinstall which ever wine version you want to, I found that installing the latest wine from their website fixed the problems that i had with the wine that came with RH, but I had to create the /.wine directory in my home directory to get the config to work.
