Unhappy Wine config problem... Please Help


I've downloaded wine-20020605-2.i386.rpm
then
rpm -ivh wine-20020605-2.i386.rpm
It's installed 100%

There's some error message:
/root/.wine/wineserver-(localhost-localdomain)/socket : No such file or directory

What shall I do now?
I'm very new for Linux,
Using RedHat Linux 9.0

One thing I can see wrong is the version of WINE you are using. If it's as old as the name of the RPM indicates, it has no chance of working with Red Hat 9. That's because there is a new thread library in that Red Hat version that breaks older WINE distributions. (That's why 9 didn't ship with WINE.)

I tried to get to winehq just now, but I seem to be have reaching them. I can't get to codeweavers either, so I suspect it's a problem on their end. You should check out http://www.winehq.com and look for a more recent version of WINE that will work with Red Hat 9.

Good luck!

Possible Short-term solution

Hi

I had the same problem, pretty much with everything that you can download on winehq these days, even the brand new 20030508 did not work.

What worked for me was:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

This is not that elegant of course, but it might work.

Also, you might want to think about upgrading your rpms (with up2date service), ESPECIALLY the glibc stuff, since THAT is what is causing problems. I think that RedHat fixed the new ones.

I am not quite sure, but I think in my case this upgrade solved the problem (programm still crashes, but not immediately)

To check if it works, try this: (must always work)

wine --version

wine notepad (is a built in windows appl)

cheers

Markus

No "fix" for glibc

The problem is that Glibc 2.3.x has NPTL (new posix threads llibrary.) This new threading system broke a lot of software, including WINE. LD_ASSUME_KERNEL either makes the dynamic linker use an older threading model, or no threads at all. It works up to a point, but there are still issues remaining.

I'm currently using Crossover Office on my Red Hat 9 laptop, and it works. I don't know the details, but there was a patch to the winehq sources to deal with the NPTL problem a month or so before Code Weavers released the updated Crossover that fixed the WINE problem. Since that solved my problem, I haven't pursued getting the updated sources from winehq. The upshot of all this is, I believe, that:

a. There is no glibc update from Red Hat that fixes the problem

and

b. There IS a winehq release that works under Red Hat 9.

Right. Get it from newrpms.sunsite.dk

WineHQ is currently offline while the ISP relocates. It'll be back online ASAP
