Question Winecfg *crashing* on sound tab?

Hi ppl,

tried to search around for this but could not find anything.

Problem: After compiling and installing wine, i run winecfg to set up the sound but as soon as i click on the sound tab winecfg crashes with following error:

wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x61eb6103 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 in 32-bit code (0x61eb6103).

I am running slack 11 (2.4), wine 0.9.23 (same error with 0.9.22)

Can it be coz am running ALSA and not OSS?

if yes, do i have to recompile the kernel to get the OSS?

any help would be greatfull...

It looks like it is a very common bug with wine. I'm having the exact same issue in Slackware 10.2. However, this does not appear to be Slackware specific. I've found a few links addressing this issue. It worked for a few peoples (not for me though)

Basically, do this:

- make sure that snd-seq module is loaded (modprobe snd-seq)
- make sure that is not being loaded. Rename it (mv <path_to_wine>/lib/ /<path_to_wine>/lib/

There are some patches around to fix this issue. Apparently, wine tries to load all available drivers now and that is why it is crashing.

Good luck!
