    ' wineprefixcreate ' and ' winecfg ' problem


    Well, I got done compiling wine 0.9.21 from source, and installing it. I'm having a problem now getting it to work. I'm running in 'su' mode. I first type "wineprefixcreate" and get this:

    Code:
    wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60924103 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
    wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60932103 (thread 000b), starting debugger...
    err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x6000c04b
    root@Fredo:~# wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60932103 (thread 000d), starting debugger...

    Alright, that didn't work. So I try "winecfg" and get this:

    Code:
     root@Fredo:~# winecfg
    wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60dda103 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
    wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60932103 (thread 000b), starting debugger...
    err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x6000c04b
    root@Fredo:~# wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x003ffd80 at address 0x60932103 (thread 000d), starting debugger...

    err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x6000c04b
    What am I doing wrong, and what can I do to get it to work? Thanks for any help.

    First, it is a bad idea to run Wine as root. I even put this in my /root/.bashrc to prevent me, in case I forget:
    Code:
    wine() { echo "Don't use WINE as root!"; }
    Both wineprefixcreate and winecfg are shell scripts that execute wine or wineserver, so one of those executables may be corrupted. You might try just the command 'wine --help' to see if it runs or crashes. If it crashes, try
    Code:
    strace wine --help
    The strace command spews out lots of debug information to the terminal. Hopefully the last thing it shows before the crash will be helpful.

    Alright, thanks. wine --help had worked fine before though, and it still works. I also tried running it out with "su". That didn't really help though. I've noticed some people have also been having the same problem though. I have a friend on the same distro, but he's running a newer kernel version. Might that help any? I tried making my own kernel, and I can't get it to work quite right...but that's for a different topic. Thanks for the help!
