View Full Version : Wine
17th March 2005, 04:13 PM
The last peice of the puzzle for my move to linux is Wine. I have fallowed guides on getting wine setup, but when I get to installing dcom I get a crash and it never installs. It looks like a stack dump. Is there something special I need to do to get Wine to work ok AMD64? I could post the detailed logs when I get home. BTW I am usiing winetool to do the setup with the RPM from winehq.

i installed the rpms from www.winehq.com, which are a bit newer than the one included in fedora base. After installation just start "winefile" from commandline and there your wine should run. Don't forget to uninstall the fedoraversion.
To unsinstall type the follwing command as root: yum remove wine
then download the rom from winehq and install them as root: rpm -i <rpm-filename>
change to your normal user and type: winefile
to see if installation works.
You can remove the new rpm using yum: yum remove wine
The configuration file of wine can be found in your home-directory ".wine/config". You might want to change the setting of the soundcard there (is configured to oss, which is deprechiated).
