For the news, messages are archived at www.deja.com . Due to google buying
deja, reachability might not be good at some times. Wine related mailing
lists are archived at www.winehq.com

: The problem is that I don't have another driver for the pc with the ati
: graphics card.
I suspect a combination of bad XFree drivers and a programming error in
wine. Try debugging the wine programm with the --synchronous option and post
the last lines of the log.
: When I tried to use the lastest cvs wine the I could't use wine via remote
: display and I got the following messages:
: X Error of failed request: XF86VidModeExtensionDisabled
: Major opcode of failed request: 134 (XFree86-VidModeExtension)
: Minor opcode of failed request: 14 (XF86VidModeSetClientVersion)

: I really don't know which other option is for enabling the

Some X related things can only run local...
: Another question is about using codeweavers wine and MSOffice 97. When I
: try to load more than one program from MSOffice the second program crashes

: My problem is that for both office 2000 and office 97 it seems not to be
: possible to run them with wine but I really would like to run at least one
: of them.
Again, try some debugging...
