    Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/root/.wine/config)

    now what????????????????
    paste your Wine Config.
    Code:
    # grep -v "^;" ~/.wine/config | grep '.' > myconfig
    execute the above command and paste the contents of file myconfig

    PS: By Your posts, I've understood that, you are running your box as root all the times. and this is NOT safe. try running your box as normal user as far as possible.

    wine won't start

    i'm having a similar problem with wine. i have my ~/.wine directory and the config file is in their. when i try to start wine it says

    Invalid path L"/c/WINDOWS" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
    Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/home/hydrogen/.wine/config)

    it seems to be using cases. how can i get this working?

    the references to "C:\\Windows" are to be correctly set to your windows directory if they exist (could be "D:\\Windows") as well. i believe the wine config file also should contain the references to to the correct hd partitions as as in your C: being /dev/hda1 .


    [root@aparna root]# wine /root/ymsgr.exe
    there are appropriate replacements (gaim and Kopete) for yahoo messenger and yahoo messenger itself is available for linux platform. (just to let you know)
