I had tried running it as root too, but it's the exact same problem. It prints:
wine: creating configuration directory '/root/.wine/'...
then creates a new subdirectory ".wine-somethingrandom" and hangs there forever.

I've read about people having the exact same problem on different versions of
Fedora Core too (me I'm on a spin-off of Mandrake), so it is not specific to the
Mandrake/Mandriva package. There is really a problem, the program is either
looping or endlessly waiting for something in particular.

I used to have (probably 2-3 years ago) a working installation of WINE, then
I've been a while without using it, now I need it back but I really can't get
the newer versions to work.

Thank you very much for anything you can do!
