[Wine]Wine hangs up totally on startup - any hints?

Hi there,

I described my problem precisely here:


I've got completely no clues what to do about it as I don't get any error
output at all... The situation: when I start Wine, it hangs up the whole system.
I mean, the mouse cursor isn't moving, the keyboard isn't responding. The only
solution is to hold the POWER button. I managed to run _some_ files actually,
e.g. a WinRAR self extracting archive, some game patches, but that's all.
I've never succeeded in running an `autorun' application from a CD-ROM or even
the Windows' Solitaire... The fact applies to all versions of Wine I've tried:
20041019, 20040813 and 20031212. I tried the binaries for the first version
and a source compilation for all three of them. No effect, I just don't know
what to do about it. Has anyone experienced such a situation? BTW, even the
applications I managed to run give me a segfault (at least that's what strace
told me), however it's bypassed or whatever...

Best wishes,
Michal Kepien
