Wine question [SOLVED]

Postby red-e-made on Tue Jul 08, 2008 2:42 pm

OK, I recently successfully installed a game in wine, but when I open it using a command prompt, I get the following error message in terminal:

Code: Select all
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000

Any ideas what this means?

See this bug at the Wine Bugzilla:

http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12516

Try the following, it should work:

Code: Select all
$ sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0


To make this setting permanent, add this line to /etc/sysctl.conf:

Code: Select all
vm.mmap_min_addr=0


This bug has been fixed (says the Wine team) in the newest Wine release.

I thank you for that, Bob. I gave Yahoo Messenger a test-run in Wine after this, and it worked. The Touhou games are another story. The one I'm trying to install is the latest one and no doubt needs patches. So I'm going for the next to latest one instead, which only requires downloading an easy-to-find .dll file in order to get it running.

My next mission is this: Could it be possible to install Wine in an external drive? I ask because the default it installs to, my root and boot partitions, are 5GBs each, while my external hard drive is 140 GB. These games are over 1GB a piece.

No need to instal wine on the external drive, just change the wine configuration so the wine "c-drice" doent point to ~/.wine/c_drive but to a folder on the external drive

Thank you, Deirdre. I'll give this a shot and report back.

Well, Deirdre this is me reporting back.

Turns out it's even simpler than I thought. I downloaded Mountain of Faith to my external drive, right-clicked, and went to Choose Application, selecting Wine Windows Emulator. Bam.

Now onto downloading the rest of the games!

Thanks everyone
