Question WineX Troubles


Hey everyone, I installed WineX 2.2 or somthing like that using the rpm method.

All seemed to install fine, my friend got the same version and it works for him, but i have a problem.

When i try to use the
winex somthing.exe , command i get this error

wine: lstat /home/andy/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost/socket : No such file or directory

I went into Konsole and took a look around using ls -a command inside the wineserver-localhost directory, the socket directory/file didn't exist.


Yet WineX, the same RPM file actualy, works great for my friend , i think hes using mandrake 9.

If anyone has a solution to this problem, or knows why it could be happening, Please give me a yell.

Thank you!

In which case i recieve this error instead.

wine: '/home/andy/.transgaming/wineserver-localhost/socket' is not a socket

I read in another thread is searched for to delete the .transgaming folder every time i try to start the winex program.

I did this, but it recreates the folder like it's suposed to when you run winex, but it obviously fails to create a "socket" whatever this is.

a socket is the "gate" programs communicate through to each other,
but I have no idea how to make one

I don't understand why it works for my friend using Mandrake 9, but i get problems using 9.1

I guess i will give it up unless anyone else has a good solution .

Here's the solution: in your winex script located in /usr/bin add the following line at the begining.

rm -frv $HOME/.transgaming/wineserver-(whatever your localhost is called ie: hocalhost)

hi...am having the same problem....using RH 9.0

I'm unable to locate any winex script in /usr/bin...
Thanx....

Sigh i can hardly get any programs to run on linux properly...always run into problems of all sorts and spending so much time to remedy them...
it's not possible for installation to be as easy as a doubleclick? :-)


Thanx

fyi:
mksock <socketfile>

to create a socket file.

I am experiencing similiar problems with the latest CVS source
for transgaming WineX.

I'll keep plugging away it. If I find a solution, I'll post it here.

Intrestingly, if you run wineserver before you run wine
ie:
#wineserver

it will create that socket file that you need.

running 'wineserver -p' will keep the server persistent, meaning
the server will continue to run, even when not used. If you don't
use the '-p' option, the will exit after a pre-determined period of
inactivity.

I wrote a quick wrapper script in /usr/local/bin to fix this:

--------------------------
#!/bin/bash
# Wine wrapper script
#
#
ps -fe |grep wineserver|grep -v grep || wineserver -p
wine $*
--------------------------
