I grabbed the most recent version of wine source at the time (about a week ago) and it built fine for me in slack 9.1

Superme 09-15-2004 09:35 PM

if you go to the SuSE 9.1 ftp site there is a version there. also, will have the most up to date version avail.

if you installed SuSE already, it may have installed wine for you. have you checked...

try the whereis command

whereis wine

i dont have SuSe i have slackware and i cant seem to find wine any where so all i need is a version of wine that someone knows works for slackware 9.1

mikedeatworld 09-15-2004 09:43 PM

Sorry all I saw was 9.1....

whereis wine

It could be under something like


cd to that dir and the rest should be easy to find

wine is not working!
Hello All,

I'm new to linux (RH9) so bear with me but I'm having a problem running wine with a linux training cd I purchased from I have a dual boot system (winxp and rh9 with grub running nice). I installed the latest wine release (wine-20040914-1rh9winehq.i366.rpm) from terminal. No obvious errors. I change to my CD-ROM directory to access the windows executable /mnt/cdrom1 and type "wine basic.exe". I now get the following error:

wine: '/root/.wine' created successfully.
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
WineDbg starting on pid 0x8
Unhandled exception: divide by zero in 32-bit code (0x403961f5).
In 32 bit mode.
0x403961f5: idivl 0xffffffc4(%ebp),%eax

I'm stuck in debug mode. I looked in the spidertools website ( and I don't see the /usr/share/wine-c folder for the windows directory structure. Could this be the problem? Any HELP would be very much appreciated. BTW.......I'm an MCP converting to Linux.

Superme: no, Slackware doesn't have installers. Slackware is a distro for whom operating systems is a hobby, really. If you want installers and things being easy to use don't use Slackware, use Fedora or something.
