First sorry for my aggressive reaction. I had a very bad day.
Yes, I'm a newbie in Wine, so I'll make such mistakes.
Back to the technical problems: I've made quite a mismatch in the
installation of Wine and the software, mostly because I continued to
install software partially with sudo. And also one application after the
other. I, also as a (Java) developer, see that it's the best to clean or
remove the Wine configurations (or at best the .wine directory) to see
how well does Wine install on *clean* installations. This helps the
developers to split basic implementation problems from those of
multiple, robust, long term installation problems, which also have to be
solved one day, but better *after* clean installations can be mastered.
What I find confusing is that the whole topic of running the 32-bit Wine
on 64-bit machines isn't mentioned in the FAQ. Sure, such machines are
still rare, and partially expensive. But they are the future. But there
should be a special 64-bit topic, even for mentioning GCC bugs (even if
they should be rare in 2006).
I will redo all tests with a *removed* .wine directory. Fortunaly, with
an AMD X2 2.0 GHz this will work faster than with any other machine
(multitasking will be not disturbed). Building Wine (after configure &
make depend) with
make -j 3
takes only 10 minutes.
I've cc-ed this e-mail to wine-bugs so that everybody sees my excuses in
personal and in technical affairs. I apologize mostly my personal
reaction. I hope I'll become a productive tester in the Wine community.
greetings to everybody
