    Cedega (WineX) wineinstall problem


    I checked out a copy of the Cedega source from the CVS on 3/5/2005. I su'ed to the root user and ran ~/winex/tools/wineinstall, as it mentioned in the readme. Partway through the compile, I ran into this problem.

    make[1]: Entering directory `~/winex/miscemu'
    gcc -MMD -c -I. -I. -I../include -I../include -g -O2 -Wall -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -fno-keep-static-consts -D__const=const -fno-strict-aliasing -D__int8=char -D__int16=short -D__int32=int "-D__int64=long long" -D__WINE__ -D_REENTRANT -I/usr/X11R6/include -o preloader.o preloader.c

    make[1]: *** [preloader.o] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `~/winex/miscemu'
    make: *** [miscemu/wine-preloader] Error 2

    Compilation failed, aborting install.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem before? Does anyone know where I could go to find information to fix it? (BTW, I'm running Fedora Core 3 with the 2.6.10-1.766 version of the kernel.)

    I have had the same problem with that very file. What GCC version are you using? What Distro? I'm using SuSE 9.2 Professional, and I'll have to check the GCC version later. The reason I ask is that I haven't seen this error anywhere else since I started searching.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    I'm using gcc 3.4.2 on Fedora Core 3.

    Well, since you're using a CVS version, my guess would be that it's a bug? Contact the developers and see what they have to say.

    I checked out the latest cvs yesterday, and it compiled! Although, I am now running into equally serious problems. I have tried running the incredibly simple Win program Notepad as a test...but it complains not only of unimplemented functions in User32.dll but as well complains that it cannot load because of "undefined symbol dllname" (The graphical component apparently). Has anyone else had these problems? I am going to recompile with new X headers to see if that works. Perhaps my X version and header version are mismatched?
