Installing/Runing Wine


I've downloaded the newest version of Wine, and after successfully (it seems) installing it, I can't seem to run it. If I type 'wine' in a terminal window, I get "Segmentation Fault"....Same thing if I type in 'notepad', any ideas? Thanks.

did you setup a fake windows drive, or are you using a pre-existing windows partition?

Well, after reading up on it, it sounded like RedHat created those for you, but maybe that's my problem? Could you point me to a document that tells me what directories to create and where? Thanks.

Wine Configuration

If it says "segmentation fault" try another version. In which distro do you install it?

For the configuration try: 'winesetuptk'

RPM Crash

As youu can see in your file it says "rh8" try using the installer for "rh9"

It would be something like:

wine-20030618-1rh9winehq.i686.rpm

It will work with this.

After installation of the rpm there is still configuration to be done - a fake windows has to be set up using the aforementioned winesetuptk command. You can also download Winetools from www.frankscorner.org which will help you with some tuning.

Thanks guys... it went fine after I downloaded the red hat 9.0 verson so now I am going for the utils to see how much better I can get it. I tried running a program to watch the tv but it said that it couldnt find my TV card... I know linux knows I have it.

Thanks again... half way there!
