WineX3 in RH9 mumbles something about socket.

When i start winex3 hl.exe.
wine: lstat /root/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost.localdomain/socket : No such file or directory

In the start i had to create the dir /root/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost.localdomain
and then i had to
chmod 700 /root/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost.localdomain

How do i fix the socket problem?

You cannot, WineX on glibc 2.3.x systems broken beyond your ability to repair.

WineHQ has a fix for this in the latest release and CVS.

I assume TransGaming will fix this problem with the WineX 3 release. Until then, there is nothing you can do. Sorry.
