Does WineX run on RH9?!

Hey there,

i just dled the latest CVS-Version of WineX and im trying to get it working on RH9 ...
While running the ./tools/wineinstall script, after configurating and compiling, i get an error msg after (or while) setting up the registry.

First, it doesnt recognize my WinXP windows partition (NTFS, up and mounted on /ablage),
second, it cancels the setup and tells me, that it cant find a /root/.wine/wineloader-localhost-local (or so) file!

Anyone of you already got WineX running? Please help me!!

It isn't a good idea to use wine with XP/2k/NT, the support isn't that god yet, if you need dlls, then pull them from a W98/ME install.
I've got winex running, and that sometimes complains about not having the wineserver-rik or something in my ~/.transgaming/
It is there, just delete it and see if it works then (the wineloader dir)
you shouldn't run wine itself as root anyway. Run the last part of the script as a normal user, otherwise your settings won't be saved for that user.
Finally, its normally better to create your config file by hand, then you know what its doing.

Did RedHat 9 come with wine? I believe RedHat 9 came with glibc2.3 and the people at wine haven't released a glibc2.3 compatible version yet.

Hey there,

I'm going for a no-windows installation of wine atm. It gets compiled fine, but then ill get those msg's:

You aren't root, so I'll skip the make install.

NOTE! To run Wine without installing, you must set the environment variable
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /home/zaubara/wine:/home/zaubara/wine/dlls
in your logon scripts.

Create local config file ~/.wine/config?
(yes/no) yes

Found existing /home/zaubara/.wine/config, if you continue this file will be
overwritten. Continue running wineinstall?
(yes/no) yes

Searching for an existing Windows installation... not found. (no matching /etc/fstab mount entry found)

Windows was not found on your system, so I assume you want
a Wine-only installation. Am I correct?
(yes/no) yes

Configuring Wine without Windows.
Some fake Windows directories must be created, to hold any .ini files, DLLs,
start menu entries, and other things your applications may need to install.
Where would you like your fake C drive to be placed?
(default is /home/zaubara/c)
Configuring Wine for a no-windows install in /home/zaubara/c...

Created /home/zaubara/.wine/config using default Wine configuration.
You probably want to review the file, though.

Compiling regapi...
rm -f regapi && ln -s ../../wine regapi

Preparing to install default Wine registry entries...
Installing default Wine registry entries...

wine: chdir to /home/zaubara/.wine/wineserver-localhost.localdomain : No such file or directory
Registry install failed.

All this only by executing the ./tools/wineinstall script!
