Wine trouble
 
Im running RH 9. This is the message I get.

[paulhitt@localhost paulhitt]$ wineserver
[paulhitt@localhost paulhitt]$ wine setup.exe
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetIdeInterface CD-ROM device with major ID 11 not supported
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetIdeInterface CD-ROM device with major ID 11 not supported
wine: cannot find 'setup.exe'

Any suggestions?

well by the looks of things, you are running wine setup.exe from your home folder....and as i don't think i am going out on a limb here, i am going to have to assume setup.exe doesn't exist in your home folder...i assume your trying to run it from your cdrom or somewhere else...in that case you have to specify the full path...something like:
wine /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe

Same error any more suggestions anyone?

couple questions..?
1-) did you set up a fake windows driver properly?
2-) what are you trying to install? its possible (if step 1 is completed) that it cannot be installed...

mhearn 08-25-2003 11:59 AM

OK, a few things:

1) You don't need to start the wineserver yourself, wine will do this automatically

2) The X11 Error: Success message is because of NPTL issues. Make sure you have actually installed an RPM built for RH9 by people who know what they are doing. That means WineHQ - get them from our website and that problem should go away.

3) The second error you got is different to the first, ignore the fixmes....

darksecant 08-25-2003 04:06 PM

How do you ignore the fixmes?

mhearn 08-25-2003 05:11 PM

Well, use your willpower to resist looking at them? Just pretend they aren't there or something, I don't know....

I used winesetuptk to setup a fake windows, and tried to install counter strike

DrOzz 08-26-2003 03:47 PM

and to me that means next to nothing unless what your trying to say is, that this is what your doing, and the below is what your getting when trying to do that?

if the above stated is true, did you do what mhearn said, and make sure your using the precompiled rpm built for redhat 9 which is available at sourceforge.net if that is the case?

darksecant 08-27-2003 07:24 AM

I used a precompiled rpm but i still get that same message.

mhearn 08-27-2003 10:15 AM

Are you *SURE* it was the rh9 RPM. Make sure there are no old versions lying around etc.....

What is your CPU?

darksecant 08-27-2003 10:22 AM

How do I uninstall wine and give it a new makeover?

mhearn 08-27-2003 10:25 AM

rpm -e wine.

Then make sure it really is gone, try running it or something, you should get "file not found". Then delete the ~/.wine directory.

DrOzz 08-27-2003 03:02 PM

after removing the current wine installation just delete the config files in the .wine directory and keep the directory structures in tact instead of rebuilding the fake drive.

darksecant 08-27-2003 10:05 PM

I got it to work, Thank you very much everyone.

Whenever I run counter-strike or half life, the scren turns black, goes to a low resolution and and just stops. Any suggestions?
