problems using wine!


Hello world!

I just installed wine on my suse 8.1 machine. Everything worked fine. But I can only run programs that I already installed in windows. I can't install anything!
With half-life for example the installation seems to work but after a few seconds it stops and nothing happens.

Is it possible that this is due to the write permissions on my disks?

thx
icecube
