problems with wine setup


With my RH7.2 installtion wine was installed as well. I then created the ./wine/config directory under my /root directory. I then copied a windows file e.g winzip80.exe to test if it was working.

When I typed ./wine /root/winzip80.exe it gave me the following error:

"Your keyboard layout was not found! Using closest match instead (Portuguese layout) for scancode mapping."

Well my keyboard as u guessed is a Portuguese keyboard why wont it see it.?

I then downloaded the source code and complied it with the same results in the end. The reason I dowloaded the source code as on the wine web site it mentioned some alterations to the keyboard.c file. I edited the file and the table for my keyboard was there so why wont it work when I compiled the source code?

Please help as Im out of options. Well if there is linux there is always a WAY!!

Thanking everyone for their help
