I have been using WINE for a few weeks now with a great success for a few of the apps that I need/want to run. I have run Band-In-A-Box 2005, Sibelius 3 (although I still have some trouble with the license for some reason), FM 2007 etc.

I've also been running PokerStars on there successfully a bit. But I actually prefer to play at Poker FatCat. The problem is that I haven't been able to get this to run on my machine properly, and although I've read a lot and tried a few things, I have no idea how to go about making this work.

I'm running Mepis 6.0 with WINE 0.9.9. I've got WINE pointing to my old NTFS drive using ntfs-3g and am running most things directly from that. I have tried installing and running PokerFatCat from the /.wine/c: virtual drive, but it makes no difference.

Here is the output from Konsole:

It's at this point that the program hangs during connection to the server.

I have tried running it with the native ole32 drivers, which removes a lot of the orror messages, but results in the program terminating much sooner.

Is there anything glaringly obvious in the above output that would make sense to anyone here, I've gone about as far as I understand.

Cheers
