    Try it from a virtual terminal to see what kind of errors or other output it's giving.
    Just cd to the program's directory, then type "wine program.exe" (without quotes and with the real name of your program, of course).

    Running wine as root? I'd advise against that.
    But if you must run it as root, it looks like you need to check your permissions in the /root directory (also /root/.wine if it exists). It looks like maybe the directory doesn't have write permissions set for anyone.
    But changing permissions in the /root directory is probably a very bad idea. I recommend you run wine as a non-root user. It should have no problems creating the requisite pseudo-filesystem in your home directory.

    Same Problem on Mandriva 2006

    Hi,

    Iīve been having exactly the same problem. At first I thought that the version of Wine included in Mandriva 2006 was giving problems, so I uninstalled it and downloaded the version from SourceForge 0.9.12

    After that when running from a terminal winecfg I get:

    wine: creating configuration directory '/home/kiki/.wine'...
    [sis_context.c:190]: Bad bytesPerPixel.
    wine: wineprefixcreate failed while creating '/home/kiki/.wine'.
    [kiki@localhost ~]$ wineserver: could not save registry branch to /home/kiki/.wine-S5JWol/system.reg : No such file or directory
    wineserver: could not save registry branch to /home/kiki/.wine-S5JWol/user.reg : No such file or directory

    I think the issue is on the second line:

    [sis_context.c:190]: Bad bytesPerPixel.

    Isnīt this a graphics card compatibility problem?

    Hope someone has the answer for this!
