  1. when I installed suse i left root's folder in /root. All installs made by root leave stuff there (if they need to do so) winecfg sais it can't find /opt/usr/wine/config (!!!) It's rerally strange...
  2. I've mentioned above that the install doesn't create a config file in the .wine/ folder... I both install and run as root so there are no access rights problems... This is very weird... I just dl-ded yet another wine src, compiled and installed it and it does the same thing... No config in the .wine/ folder and, even if I put the one from the src's wine ignores it.
  3. 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. 10x
