Just got Wine 1.1.13 on Ubuntu 8.10 tried to map D: to my Windows partition /dev/sda5 /media/DATA but Wine wouldn't keep my choice and reverts to /media/cdrom0.
Found out that permissions for ~/.wine/dosdevices/d: were root only and couldn't change them. So I deleted d: & d:: and made new symbolic links
$ sudo rm -r /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d*
$ ln -s /media/DATA /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d:
$ ln -s /dev/sda5 /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d::
which fixed my problem.
Is this a bug as I never had this problem before?
