    Wine Problem


    I am running mandrake10 on the globtrotter hard drive. How do I get wine to work? I get the hour glass saying 'starting wine' but after a few seconds it just ends. Im new at linux and probable just missing something. Any help will be great. Thanks -Ed-

    Did you use winetools to set up your wine install? If you didn't it will help immensely with getting programs to run. The only issue I had was getting it to download DCOM98, but if I remember correctly, I simply manually downloaded it and placed it the winetools/sys folder and it automatically found it there and installed it from there. I then manually installed all my Windows fonts from my true Windows partition, simply by copy and paste because it couldn't seem to connect to the site to download arial true type font.

    Here's a great resource for all things wine.
