running notepad.exe in wine


hello,

i installed wine, and copied their sample config file to my .wine directory, and then i typed the following command:
Code:
wine notepad.exe
and it returns with this error:
Code:
err:module:load_builtin_dll
failed to load .so
lib for builtin
L"x11drv.dll": libXxf86dga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory
wine: Could not load graphics driver 'x11drv'.
i have XFree config right, and i'm running the GUI while i'm typing this command. Is this a problem with the dll that wine is trying to use, or do i have something misconfiged?

thanks,
djgerbavor3

I think it cant find x11drv.dll

Try finding another copy of wineconf or download winetools. This will set up .wine for you. Delete .wine and all its content before running winetools

I've just tried 'wine notepad.exe' in my december2004 wine, and all seems to work. I ask stupid q: have you installed wine by wine tools? I don't know how it's made in newer wines, but my december's had its installer, it was in "dir where I extracted archive"\tools and it was called 'wineinstall' (a script). By the way: try VMware, all win32 apps (except games?) work under it (after you install windows there, of course )

Why don't you just work with KWrite or something?

i'm just testing wine with notepad, because i want to start using it for other apps,
but i figure notepad would be a good program to start out to see if i have wine configured right

You have a broken Wine package. Install from the source.

djgerbavore,
You should ALWAYS use sources instead of rpm and other s**t. Cuz it'll be build depending to your system.
For configuring read README in the dir where you extracted wine...

vegetassj2, great
