There is a port for winetools in FBSD, but it's for 1.25. Here's what
occured while using:
On FBSD after linking wt gives error:
/usr/local/bin/wt: 89: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
On SuSE Linux 9.1 Personal Edition:
winetools fails to install ie6. When using an English copy of
ie6setup.exe, winetools warns of the need to mount a cd, but a cd is
mounted. I noticed that winetools made a d:: directory, but linked it
to /dev/cdr0 or something. However, the correct device link is
/dev/by-id/Some-system-generated-file-name. I relinked d:: to the
correct spot, however, running ie6setup gave same warning. Allowing
winetools to mount the drive failed. I umount -f /media/cdrom and
remount it. This does no good, and again ie6setup fails.
Unfortunately, I had a good install of Office 2000 using wine, and now I
cannot install it. Guess I should not have deleted the old install.
But that leads to anothe problem. Unlike FBSD where /home is linked to
/usr/home, /home on SuSE (and other Linux's) is /. Well this is
problematic for those who setup our partitions the good ol' BSD way.
/dev/hda2 3.1g /
/dev/hda4 25g /usr
/dev/hda3 11g /var ----this is a bit off for BSD but Linux
uses /var more than BSD by default.
Thus using /home/user/.wine uses quite a bit of a small slice. It would
be nice if one could specify a wine install directory.
The tool has some nice features. I really love the simulate windows
I guess it's back to the drawing board for me. Thanks for the help, at
least I'm begining to understand what wine is doing.
