I have a SuSe9.2 and I wanted to try out wine.
got both the rpm and the src/tar and installed it (as root)
everything went ok
afterwards I decided to take a look in the config file and, surprise! there's no config file in the /root/.wine/ ... THe folder itself exists but no config. I checked the manual and followed the advice there and copied the config from the source package.
I tried wine on some older games for start - RedAlert(1) and TotalAnnihilation. It works, to some extent, fine, especially RA.
now I wanted to install some software with wine. THe installer starts ok but then sais I don't have the correc version of windows - it sais I have win95 and I need at least 2k or XP.
fine. i opend the config file and modified from 'win95' to 'win2k', saved and.... nothing.. the wine is still in 'win95' 'mode'...
i used the provided conifg tool - the one with a gui - selected 'windows 2000' in the drop down box, applied the changes and... nothing...
I tried, for example PaintShopPro 8 which a I saw on the winehq apps db that both insalls and runs (with bugs, though) but I get the same error 'incorrect OS. you need at least win2k/winxp'....
Funny thing is that the wine gui setup tool remembers the settings (actually saves data somewhere) but NOT in the /root/.wine/config
In fac I discovered that wine won't use the /root/.wine/config file!
I deleted the install, tried againg both with rmp's and compile from src but it goes the same way.
I tried looking for (any) files that contain exact expressions (variable names) from the provided config file but there are none.
Any ideeas about this.
