the installation program pops up a dialogue saying that it can't initialise the plugins directory... I haven't done much in the way of exploration outside that.

Question

"I miss futurama"

What exactly do you need Winamp 5 for? Are you implying you need it to watch Futurama clips or something. If you haven't already, check out XMMS, MPlayer, and MPlayer front-ends (i.e KPlayer).

Use XMMS. My opinion sound is much better with XMMS.

There is no need for WInamp+Wine when we have the great programs mentioned above.

I know about xmms, but futurama is being streamed on several servers
via winamp 5 (nfs format I think), and some movies, and what not. I'm not sure how to
get the servers to work with xmms, let alone how to find out what
they are.

Wine Winamp 5.01

I use Cross Over Office, and the Winamp install went great (no modern skin support or cd burning) but it runs great for those pesky windows specific files. I dont think wine alone will install it I think I got an unknown error or something stupid like that, so use Cross Over

He did, above. Apparently there are certain streams that only WA5 can play...

Isn't it easier to simply download the file with bittorrent or lmule and watch it as everybody does? I mean, downloading an ordinary format as mpeg or avi will most likely get the job done.
I always, always always have to disagree when peoples try to run applications under wine. You most likely get a bad performance or a half-done job (if you are a lucky man btw). WineX is an exception, since the number of games released for windows compared to linux is one thing, but about programs developed for linux and windows are quite another...

Winamp is better than XMMS. I know, as I have used both very extensively.

I agree with the above statement, solely because I think that XMMS is rubbish. But there is no need to run WA since Mplayer does the job perfectly.

I don't understand how Winamp could ever be better than XMMS. XMMS does the job - it's supposed to play audio files and that's also what I mainly use it for

I don't want want to remind myself how often Winamp has crashed on me way back when I was still running off MS Operating Systems. Now guess how many times XMMS has crashed on me - good guess...not even once!

Anyhow, I don't think this is what we're actually discussing here. The person whoever started this thread asked how he could get winamp to run with wine and as far as I've read, someone recommended him using CrossXOffice. Looks like it's the only solution for now until someone else claims otherwise.

Winamp is used for far more than listening to music, and is HUGELY superior.

Internet TV, (I know most of you don't seem to understand the importance of that, becaues you don't use it) ripping, burning, etcetera.
