This is an issue I went round and round about a while ago, but did not have
time to resolve. I posted this at linuxquestions.org, but this is really a
wine issue. Forgive me for posting a subject that was once discussed at
length as I've lost the responces people sent.

I have Slackware 10.0 running, and have used for quite a while. I run the
Windows Half-Life OP4 server using wine. To start this, I have to start
either the Norton Commander for Windows, or the Total Commander for Windows,
both windows file manager type of programs. From there, I start hlds.exe,
and it runs just fine. Both of these file managers see ONLY C:\, the windows
fake drive, and Z:\, which appears to be mapped to my linux root (this is
not my doing, it just appears there and I'm guessing this is a feature of
Wine). They see them as if they were windows drives, not linux drives. So, I
navigate to z:\fat-d\hlserver\gearbox, where hlds.exe is located, and start
it with appropriate switches. I've been doing this for about a year, and it
works well.

If I try to start if from konqueror, it fails to start:

fixme:font:WineEngCreateFontInstance just using first face for now
err:mmio:MMIO_ParseExtA No . in szFileName: ""
err:mmio:MMIO_ParseExtA No . in szFileName: "Z:\\fat-d\\hlserver\\gearbox\\"

I'm not quite sure what is is telling me. Any ideas how to trouble shoot
this, or where to go from here? Or why it works from the windows file
manager programs, but not directly from konqueror?
