Well, we should let the chi flows ..... and let the yin and yang fills this thread with harmony once again ..... Come on, I'll buy you a cuppa coffee (since you're supposed to be working ...)

Leave wine for later ....

Will someone please just tell me what the extension for a binary executable is in Linux? In Windows it's exe. Is there a Linux exe? I'm not talking about Wine. What is the extension?

FYI, there is no such thing as a linux .exe extension ... (exe = executables) ... on linux, executables are indicated by the file execute permission.

I suggest that you kindly post your future queries in a new specific thread and help keep this thread clean for wine ...

No! All files should have file execute permissions! How do I configure Puppy Linux to execute everything unless otherwise specified?

Hey Jason, guess what? It's the same question I've been asking since I started asking questions here, so why doesn't somebody answer it? I call conspiracy!

Sorry Keanen but you need to read a linux manual or two. That will help a lot for you and me (I have a LOT to read still Very Happy)

My novice attempt at compiling wine:

wine-1.1.34-i486.pet (release 1)
wine_DEV-1.1.34-i486.pet - development package (release 1)
wine_DOC-1.1.34-i486.pet - documentation package (release 1)

I installed these packages before compiling:

jack-audio-connection-kit-0.116.1-i486.pet (source)
jack-audio-connection-kit_DEV-0.116.1-i486.pet (source)
xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet (source)
xorg_xorg_full_dri_DEV-7.3.pet (source)

During the wineprefix creation it will attempt to download Gecko. Either let it download automatically, or do it manually (source):
Code:
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine_gecko-1.0.0-x86.cab

Code:
mkdir -p /usr/share/wine/gecko

Code:
mv wine_gecko-1.0.0-x86.cab /usr/share/wine/gecko/


my graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 8400GS, so I install the 'NVIDIA-190.42-k2.6.30.5-1.pet' from this post.

Hi green_dome,
Thanks for compiling 1.34. Works fine.

Are the audo + xorg packages mandatory for installation? (I installed them to avoid dependency issues)

Only if your program wants to use...opengl and directx 3d games for example.....and jack is selected in the winecfg menu if desired. If you want to save space the xorg dri package can be trimmed down to only the drivers needed for your card.

They are 'soft' dependancies so wine will run without.

Talking about space, once you get things installed in wine, the .wine and .winetrickscache can become quite huge.
Since I have a frugal install my .2fs is limited in size and I would like to have the wine package installed outside my pupsave. I tried linking those folders from another partition but I lost the c_drive in the process (basically broke my wine install).

Any idea on how to symlink the wine folders to other partitions?

[url]Any idea on how to symlink the wine folders to other partitions?[/url]

It didn't work because you symlinked to a FAT or ntfs partition. There's only a couple of links but they are needed.

So either you need some space on an ext2/3 partition or you can make an image file and use that. It also solves the problem of wine gecko not working.

By the way you cannot make a link to an empty folder then let wine fill it up...it thinks its broken that way. let wine make the .wine folder then move it entirely as you have done. Its also handy as everything is there after a remaster or for any other puppy running the same wine version.(note the link to empty folder may catch you out if you do hence the warning)

What goes in .winetrickscache by the way..I don't have that?

You're perfectly correct; I was definitely trying to link to a fat partition.
I'll create an ext3 one and keep you posted.

As far as the .winetrickscache is concerned, it seems it holds the temporary data downloaded when I use the Wine Tricks app I found in the Utility menu.


<EDIT>
MikeB, I managed to do exactly what you suggested: create an ext3 partition and symlink from it.
This will let me keep my pupsave files leaner in the future!!! Thanks a lot for your help and Best Wishes for 2010! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
