wine: virtual memory exhausted

Postby missingfaktor » Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:02 am

I have two machines - a laptop and a desktop, both running Linux Mint 13, KDE, 64 bit. Wine works fine on laptop, but it doesn't work at all on my desktop. It was working until a couple of days ago, but has stopped working since then. Every time I try to run wine, I get "virtual memory exhausted" error.

I googled around a bit, and came across two suggestions:

1. removing ".wine" directory from home.
2. adding the current user to "audio" group.

I tried both, but neither fixes the problem for me. Please help.

PS: I posted this problem to #winehq IRC as well; didn't receive any replies.

Please don't post the same questions in multiple places such as, or did you think we wouldn't notice and which begs the question whether you are even running mint? The wine forums are the place to ask about technical issues with wine.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
