New to wine

I have Civiliation 4 installed on my windows computer across the network but it complains about DLLs that are inside it's folder. I even tried WINEDLLOVERRIDES.

"err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR71.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\mnt\\xpc\\python24.dll") not found

What I want is a good introduction to wine. Are there any good tutorials anyware? The only thing I found was the user guide which doesn't help much.

Wine is under heavy development. It rarely works, so don't expect to run very advanced games on it. Try something like cedega (sadly it's commercial) at

First off, check some resources like the Wine Application Database to check if the program is supported.

You may have to place the DLLs in the windows/system folder

About cedega being commercial, it is indeed available for a cost. However, it must still follow it's GPL'd core, and so you can get the source from their CVS, for no charge. You will still have to compile it by hand, but it'll probably be faster that way than a prebuilt package.
Check out for more details.

Yeah I went to install cedega from CVS but it needs mesa installed. On Gentoo this package is "masked" along with all it's dependancies! Sadly Civ 4 works on cedega. I fixed the dll thing but it exits "Unload the debugger and try again." The guys in IRC say it cant be fixed.
