    Using Wine?


    Hi, I've reicently bought a dedicated linux server with root acess. Im using SSH to connecto to the server. So far I've installed wine using the "yum install" command. But when it comes to running I browse to the correct folder and try to execute "wine evo.exe engine 0" command and this is the output that I get.

    [root@localhost evo]# wine evo.exe
    err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x602eed24 "loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread 000a, blocked by 0009, retrying (60 sec)
    Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
    Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.

    I saw somewhere on the forum that you cannot run with root user so i tried wit ha different user and I get the same result. I've also put in the
    "export DISPLAY=:0.0" inside .bash_profile and "xhost +local:" in the .bash_profile under the username folder. Why isnt it working?

    If you're ssh'ing into a server, ssh will tunnel X for you and set DISPLAY
    to point to the tunnel. This requires you to be running X on your local
    computer, too, and to use the ssh option to enable tunnelling.

    What's your local computer? Is it running X? What ssh client and options
    are you using?
