I am sorry.  My point was not to slam the newer versions of Wine.  In fact I did say that I had installed 1.2 without problems before on this 64 bit system.  sorry if I was unclear.

My problem is this gecko and html rendering thing  on opensuse 11.2 64 bit.  At this time it will not work for me.

> I install winmx thru wine and it goes fine up until the 1st start instance of winmx. All of a sudden I get a popup window [Wine Gecko Installer] informing me that my application is trying to show an html page, [WinMX is a P2P music and chat program][listed on this site] and that wine needs gecko to do this. Click Install to do this.

I just want to get this gecko problem solved and  have tried somethings and they are not working even with version 1.2.   
Does anyone have any ideas how to solve this?
Thank You.
