View Full Version : Issues with WINE and X (or nVidia drivers)

5th April 2007, 02:12 PM
i am running fedora core 6, kernel version 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.

i installed wine using "yum install wine" and it installed version:


i have earlier installed nvidia drivers version:

"xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.i386 1.0.9755-3.lvn6"
"kmod-nvidia.i686 1.0.9755-"

problem is, when i try to run winecfg from a terminal window i get error message:

err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x606fa1a0 "x11drv_main.c: X11DRV_CritSection" wait timed out in thread 000c, blocked by 000b, retrying (60 sec)

then after a while the window comes up all borked and it shows the contents of the windows that are moved around it, and i get another error message:

wine: Critical section 606fa1a0 wait failed at address 0x602b44b0 (thread 000c), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: wait failed on critical section 0x606fa1a0 thread_data_tls_index+0x44

process tid prio (all id:s are in hex)

i have just (less than an hour ago) tried to reinstall wine as well, but with no luck.
if anybody here can lend me a helping hand, i will be very grateful.
