Unhappy wine is not working.


I'm trying to run a Linux training CD from with the latest wine release (wine-20040914-1rh9winehq.i686.rpm) on Red Hat 9 (2.4.20-6) dual boot system. I think the install went good (rpm -ivh) but when I execute the following command from terminal "wine basic.exe", I get the below error every time. Any suggestions? Is this a bug with my setup, wine or red hat kernel?

Please use the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts\LogPixels
to set the screen resolution and remove the "Resolution" entry in the config file
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
WineDbg starting on pid 0x8

It's a bug with Wine, though it looks sort of familiar ..... hmm

I downloaded the 30-day demo version of CodeWeavers "CrossOver Office Standard 3.0.1" and my windows .exe is now running on RH9. I guess the Wine install is more stable and refined in this software then it is independently. I'm probably going to buy it. It's a little expensive $40 US but well worth it I hope.
