    Steam on Wine


    Hi,

    I've managed to install Wine and update. However, when I try to log into my Steam account, it just hangs with the message "Connecting Steam account: xxxxx" (Where xxxxx is my username)

    I have tried the following versions of Wine:

    0.9.24
    0.9.27
    0.9.29
    0.9.43

    And I'm using OpenSuse 10.2. Any ideas how to fix this?

    hey,
    Well try this from terminal / Console mode
    #wine &
    Or
    # locate wine|less
    It will show you where you installed wine for i.e it should be in /usr/bin/wine
    #/usr/bin
    #./wine
    If this does not fix the problem, just after trying above commands post the output of
    #tail -f /var/log/messages
    Regards,

    who |grep -i blonde |
    date; cd~; unzip; touch;
    strip; finger; mount; gasp;
    yes; uptime; umount;
    sleep

    Wine is running Steam fine, it's just when I enter my user name and password it hangs while logging in.
