can wine and winex exist at the same time?


Hi,
Im trying to follow instructions for using wine with a game, but the problem is I installed winex before i found the tutorial. i dont really want to remove winex because some things work with it. If i download wine and install it, will it mess up winex in any way or is it ok to have them existing at the same time?

Edit: btw, its the CVS version of winex, it wasnt a precompiled package.

I think you should be fine I used to have wine and winx installed and they did not seem to conflict...things might have changed so I could be wrong

WineX is intended to be installed as user, so everything resides in its own secluded directory...you should have no conflicts with Wine or Crossover*

Uh, it seems like wine and winex both need the /home/[user]/.wine directory, and they both use 'wine' as their command. Infact, when i installed regular wine, and ran a prog with 'wine' it acted like it was still the transgaming wine.. sorta confusing. Oh well, i dont really care about that game enough to invest a lot of time in this problem.

Thanks for the replies,
Wes

Well, that doesn't seem right, I have both installed and here is what I have:

WineX located in: /usr/bin/winex3

uses: /home/[user]/.transgaming

---

Wine located in: /usr/bin/wine

uses: /home/[user]/.wine

---

I head over to Frank's Corner and pick up WineTools (to install programs / games with Wine), and WineX Game Manager to install...games!

depending on what cvs version of winex you get (if thats what you infact intend to get) then 9 times outta 10 it will conflict ... both executables are named wine ...
but then again i have downloaded a cvs version that was named "cvswinex" and others that were simply called "winex" ... so its all dependant on how you go about getting winex
