Talking Instructions on Run kazaa with wine.

1. Compile and install Wine on your system. Does ist work properly? Execute a simple application like Notepad!
2. Get KaZaA Lite.
3. The following files have to be in the Wine system directory:
commctrl, comdlg32, comctl32, msvcrt, shdoclc, shdocvw, shlwapi.dll, urlmon and wininet.
Copy them from a Windows 95/98 machine, but not from Windows NT 4, 2000 or XP (they won't work).
4. Add the following lines to Wine's config-file:

"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "native"
"comdlg32" = "native"
"msvcrt" = "native"
"shdoclc" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"
"urlmon" = "native"
"wininet" = "native"

If you want to be able to play the downloaded files with the KaZaA application you will have to install the Microsoft Windows Media Player.

download the latest wine from codeweavers.
you can only config wine with non-root user

Thanks for the help on installing it in wine, but I seem to be having a problem with using it (I guess)

I get it started up fine and can do search to find files, but when I go to check on my downloads to see how they are doing, kazaa crashes on me.

any help on this would be muchly appreciated.

thank you...

All i have to say is thank you, so very much.

Once again, gets me out of a jam.

One step closer to never needing windows again (if only my printer/firewire hd would work, i'd be set)

Thanks again, the help was awesome.
