I've been running Tomb Raider 2 without problems in Fedora 8 using wine 1.1.5 and older without problems.
After upgrade to wine 1.1.9, the game no longer detects that the cdrom is mounted. I tested several other games and the same problem.
What I do is run winecfg and add a drive as a path to a cdrom directory, and use 'advanced' button to set the drive as CD-ROM. This always worked, but I believe sometime after the upgrade, the games keep asking to put a cdrom in the drive.
Has wine 1.1.9 changed to no longer allow directories as cdrom? Or is there something wrong with my system? I tried cleaning out ~/.wine but that didn't help.
