Wine Help


I am using Slack 9.1 and have just install wine from source. I am able to run notepad but when I try to run wine sol.exe I get the following:

Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
Could not stat /c (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C:
Could not stat /cdrom (No such file or directory), ignoring drive D:
Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/home/john/.wine/config)
john@jrock:~/.wine$ pico config
john@jrock:~/.wine$ wine sol.exe
Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
Could not stat /c (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C:
Could not stat /cdrom (No such file or directory), ignoring drive D:
Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/home/john/.wine/config)

Any ideas on how to fix

well just like it says, you have not properly configured your config file for wine ..
your going to have to specify the correct locations of all the devices in the error, in your wine config file ..

Ok I understand that. I am sorry that was my fault. Ok I am going to post parts of config file where the issues are and maybe I could get an idea of what to place in that location.

[Drive A]
"Path" = "/mnt/fd0"
"Type" = "floppy"
"Label" = "Floppy"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
"Serial" = "87654321"
"Device" = "/dev/fd0"

[Drive C]
"Path" = "/c"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

Ok so for Drive A should I change the path to /dev/fd0 and for path of drive C to /dev/hda1

Let me know if I am off on this

well no (kinda) :
the path of the floppy is where you have the mount point for the floppy, and this is typically /mnt/floppy, but that just depends on how you set your system up ...
as of the path for the C drive, i am assuming you are using a fake c drive, and if you are using a fake c drive, well it is commonly located in your home folder ...
so the path of C is going to be where you have the fake C drive at ... common paths for this i have seen and used are :
/home/user/c
/home/user/.wine/c
so again it depends where you set up this stuff to be located ....
p.s. you will of course change 'user' to the correct name for your home folder ...

Ok I am down to this
wine: cannot find 'sol.exe'
Is this because I am running a fake windows and I have to copy that over?

Now I am dual booting whicj I have windows xp on hda1

Would it be better to set that up than fake windows?

If

no its not recommended to use your actual windows installation, but you can if you wish ..and since you say you use XP i am also assuming it has an NTFS partition, which would probably give your more problems down the road if you end up using it ..
so i would just stick to the fake windows drive that you can setup in your home folder ...

and take the error as it states ..
""cannot find sol.exe""

either :
a) it just don't exist
or
b) your not in the folder where it does exist ...

well i think you should just say the hell with solitaire, and just to run and install something ... cause i assume that is why you are trying to put wine on your box correct ??

i really don't think you are going through all this to get solitaire working, cause there are tonnes of different packages native to linux to play solitaire if that is the case ...

whatever it is that is making you install wine, then just try to install it and see if you have success, and if you get stuck, then come back and look for more help
we aren't going anywheres

goodluck!
