problems with wine =/


alright this may be a stupid question but i don't care... i need help

So i have just installed SuSE 9.1 personal! i want to play some windows games.. like counter-strike, so i read up and learned about wine. so once i installed counter-strike and got the 1.5 full upgrade i tried playing then game only to get an error about 306 blah blah blah... so i hit ok and then game bring me to the menu which seems to work but when i hit play CS or new game it just freezes! so i thought "meh" ill just install steam and hopefully that will work...but after i finished installing steam it began to upgrade itself... as it usually does and encountered an error at %27!!!

so i went to:
home/username/.wine/fake_windows/sierra/valve/steam/steam.exe

and it gave me this error...

Steam.exe (main exception): Unable to change directory to /home/username/.wine/fake_windows/Sierra/valve/steam

followed by another error which read...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debug Assertion Failed
Program: C:\Sierra\vavle\steam\steam.exe File: \p4clients\rel_beta\Projects\Common\Misc\Win32Registry.cpp
Line: 447

bCloseRet == 0L
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know i am very new to all this wine and linux command structure stuff and i am trying to be patient but it seems like everytime i try to do anything something manages to go wrong so plzz help! thank you

hey maybe just some quick tips on how to use wine more effectively and get it to work period would be much appreciated!

It looks that you have 'sierra' and the program is searching for 'Sierra'. Try to rename the directory.
The error may be caused by an absolutely differnet thing, however.

Something with registry, it seems. Do you have registry entries you can copy frome existing installation?

i guess its just me, but if they are charging i am less inclined as well, but to play that many games it might be worth it till someone gets a version that doesn't charge you. i want to use linux only one day, hopefully sooner than later.

I understand how you feel. I like Linux better but I like Windows to some degree and I have to use it anyways because the majority of company networks are controlled by Windows Servers. I'm a Computer Science student, there's no avoiding Windows for awhile. Fortunately, Linux with it's Apache Web server controls the majority of the web server market.
Everything that I've done with Linux has been free and I intend to keep it that way, it also evens out the high prices of Windows software....LOL. There are lots of people that are successfully running CS and HL under Linux with just wine. Where there is a will, there is a way. I like trying to figure out how to make things work, it helps me to learn the OS more thoroughly. Also, it helps my education.

And Mara, I don't know if copying the registry would work in my case because the wine registry is set to emulate a "Win 98" enviroment. The only other option would be maybe XP if that option is available. I also don't think that NT will work either. I have Windows 2003 Enterprise Server. What do you think?

Thanks.

Been there, done that. It's trouble shooting time now and I have a specific problem that I'm hoping to find an answer for. I've checked every internet source that I could find. Looking for help in the forums now. Thanks.
