    Cedega


    hello, currently new to linux, <attending collage and learning it atm>. i currently use SUSE 9.0 and i have cedega installed. I am trying to install a multi disk game, and i can't seem to get the disk to eject to swap, even if i do

    umount/cdrom

    all it tells me is that device is busy.

    """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
    Open a console/terminal window and change into the game directory using the
    following commands:

    $ cd ~/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/[Game Directory]
    $ cedega [wine options] game.exe [game options]

    Options can be passed both to Cedega and the game using the command line.

    The options for Cedega are:

    -bigexe
    As of Cedega 4.3 this option is now the default behaviour, and is only
    accepted for backwards compatibility.

    -use-pthreads
    A way to override the use of pthreads. This option should be
    automatically set by Cedega, however, if problems exist it may be useful
    to change the pthreads option. Acceptable values are yes or no.

    -winver
    Specify the version of Windows Cedega will report: win95, win98, winme,
    nt351, nt40, win2k, winxp, win20, win30, win31
    The default setting is win98.

    -debugmsg
    Display error information/output:
    +all, -all, +relay, +dsound, +err are the most common options
    -all is the default option, and will suppress any errors

    -use-dos-cwd
    Specifies the Cedega working directory. The default is the current
    directory. Directories may be specified using either DOS or Linux
    filenames.

    -monitor-cdrom-eject
    Enables the CD eject polling functionality. This option is off by
    default and typically only needs to be enabled for some multidisk
    installers. When enabled, the CD-ROM drives are periodically checked to
    see if the CD-ROM's eject button has been pressed. Even when disabled,
    the eject can be forced by sending the USR2 signal to the wineserver
    process. Care should be taken when enabling this option on systems
    which have compact flash drives.


    -version
    Report the version of Cedega that you are using

    Options for individual games can usually be found in the game's 'README' file.

    in bold text, that is the command that i used.
    """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
    i typed

    cedega -monitor-cdrom-eject

    all i get is a bunch of jiberush. if there is any other cedega users out there, can you plz give me a hand?

    P.S.

    I use point2play which makes the process easy. When it's time to change the cd just click the mount button put your cd in the drive click the mount button again and it will close the door and proceed with the install.

    So my suggestion, try point2play.

    try:

    Code:
    cedeta -monitor-cdrom-eject /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe
    where setup.exe is the installer on the cdrom's root
