    noob ? i know... wine config file


    I installed wine 0.9.12 in FC4 using yum.

    Where would I locate my wine configuration file? I am trying to add the WoW memory override to it but do not know where it is / what it's called. I found winecfg but I don't know if that is the one i need to append or not.

    I need to add this:

    ;; App default settings
    ;; World of Warcraft settings
    [AppDefaults\\WoW.exe\\memory]
    "MemoryLayoutOverride" = "0x10000000"

    Arrow noob? ... wine config file

    try at prompt..
    [user]$ su
    password: (root-password here)

    [root]$ rpm -qa | grep wine

    ans see if you can identify the 'config' file in lists there
    use gedit to open said file
    backit-up (save as something else)
    save as (original name again)

    make the mod (paste your text on at the end)

    There is a sample in the source documentation/samples/config
    then try wine app again.

    I used the rpm -qa | grep wine command but it just returned the .fc4 file name, no other files at all.

    I was talking to someone that said it was in ~/.wine/WoW but I dont have that. is it because i am running it from a non-writeable windows partition?

    Arrow Re:noob ? i know ... wine config file

    Well apparently the config file is not used anymore - not present.

    see: http://www.winehq.com/site/docs/wineuser-guide

    To configure your wine, use
    [root]$ winecfg

    (it saves the settings in the registry)

    wine runs as a service so check--

    [root]$ service wine restart
    and
    [root]$ chkconfig wine --list
    wine 0-off 1-off 2-on 3-on 4-on 5-on 6-off

    reboot system!

    my system says neither 'service' or 'chkconfig' are valid commands

    Code:
    [jmazikowski@localhost ~]$ su
    Password:
    [root@localhost jmazikowski]# service wine restart
    bash: service: command not found
    [root@localhost jmazikowski]# services wine restart
    bash: services: command not found
    [root@localhost jmazikowski]# chkconfig wine -list
    bash: chkconfig: command not found
    [root@localhost jmazikowski]#

    Rebooting and test 'wine' again to check it runs OK
    that is it is persists on reboot, thats the chkconfig thing.

    try
    [root]$ wine --help

    if you get something then wine is at least running OK.
    And thats about as far as I can help you as I don't really know how to use
    wine very much!
    As far as I can see you have to do the config thru the winecfg or regedit
    Maybe someone else with experience of wine could help here???
