If I go and check my WineX I get the following errors:

linux:/home/whschimmel/winex # ./tools/winecheck
This script verifies the configuration of the whole Wine environment.
Note that this is an ALPHA version, and thus it doesn't catch all problems !
The results of the checks are printed on the right side:
OK - test passed without problems.
SUSPICIOUS - potentially problematic. You might want to look into that.
BAD - This is a problem, and it leads to configuration score penalty.
CRITICAL - A critical problem which can easily lead to malfunction.
FAILED - This problem leads to Wine failure almost certainly.

The result will be printed as a percentage score indicating config completeness.

--------------------------- checking Wine base files ---------------------------
001. Checking for file "wine"... which: no wine in (/
FAILED (file not found).
- ADVICE: Make sure the "wine" command is in your PATH (echo $PATH; export PATH=
002. Checking for correct .so lib config (please wait)... OK.

----------------------------- checking config file -----------------------------
003. Checking config file access... OK.

>>> Checking drive C settings:
004. Checking Path option... OK.
005. Checking Type option... OK.
006. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive D settings:
007. Checking Path option... OK.
008. Checking Type option... OK.
009. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive E settings:
010. Checking Path option... OK.
011. Checking Type option... OK.
012. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive G settings:
013. Checking Path option... OK.
014. Checking Type option... OK.
015. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

--------------------- checking system devices used by Wine ---------------------
016. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... CRITICAL (no kernel driver for /dev/dsp?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt.
017. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... CRITICAL (no kernel driver for /dev/mixer?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt.
018. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... BAD (no kernel driver for /dev/sequencer?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ------------------------
019. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... OK.
020. Checking availability of windows registry entries... CRITICAL (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: Windows registry does not seem to be added to Wine, as this typical Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. This can affect many newer programs. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not* be available with a no-windows install, of course, so you'll have to live with that..

20 tests. 0 suspicious, 1 bad, 3 critical, 1 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 8.75%

If anybody knows anything about one of these "errors", lett me know please,

Wouter Schimmel
