Wine install problems
I created this computer a few months ago back in the summer, and I have decided to put that expensive graphics card to good use. I am going to play a game.
Well, I did my research and looked at tutorials on how to install wine. I did so. or atleast I thought I did.
I went here:
HOWTO Install and update World Of Warcraft with wine - Gentoo Linux Wiki
(I use Sabayon(3.3), same difference)and followed the instructions down to enabling the USE flags. installed using 'emerge' and everything was peachy.
On the first run of winecfg, i decided to set a window size.
Dumb mistake number one.
The second time I opened winecfg, I couldn't see the "O.k" and "Apply" buttons at the bottom. I spazzed out trying to get myself able to see those crucial buttons. Then, my system started to slow down. A lot. I hit CTRL-ALT-Backspace it got so bad, my music player was skipping.
On re-log in, i try again to see what I can do to configure wine. and I get this:
davidd@localhost ~ $ winecfg
ALSA lib conf.c:3939:(snd_config_expand) Unknown parameters 0
ALSA lib control.c:910:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default:0
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x4600007
Serial number of failed request: 13
what do I need to do so I don't shoot myself over spending $120 on a nice graphics card that does nothing but make my desktop wallpaper look nice and shiny?
Man u r funny,
Anyway, i had had problems try to configure sound, that is the audio setting plus u need to setup the OS platform, and enable directx.
When it come, to wine, u need to try wine doors if u can install it anyway, its more accurate. and will run most games.
All the best
