    DLL Overrides & ntfs


    So i just ran winecfg for the first time, and i'm going through the guide at WineHQ trying to set everything up, and it says i can use native windows dll's. I have windows installed on another hd, but it is ntfs.

    My question is can i, or should i mount the ntfs drives in linux, and then tell wine to look for the native dll files there? Or is this not a good idea? From what i've read it seems like you can mount ntfs drives, and use them pretty decently at least as read-only, but do you need to install any extra software to do this?

    Any help would be appreciated : )

    I think that FC4 has NTFS support built-in to the kernel. Try:
    Code:
    mount /dev/foo /mnt/bar -t ntfs
    replacing the ficticious device and mountpoint with the respective values.

    Thanks, i was able to get the ntfs drive mounted.
    My next question is, what dll's are best to over-ride?

    I originally tried using wine tools, but for some reason the download stalls for the required arial font, and doesn't even start for internet explorer, so i guess i will have to do it manually, but i'm still just learning how to use wine.

    any thoughts or suggestions?
