HOWTO: Install WineX from CVS

Post by Sniper Fox » Wed Nov 12, 2003 6:49 pm

THIS SEEMS TO INSTALL AND RUN, PLEASE HELP TEST

As root:

Code: Select all

mkdir /wine
cd /wine
cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login 
(When prompted for the password enter "cvs" )
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex 
./tools/wineinstall 
(Accept all defaults at the end of the installation, it errors with some registry problem, but we don't care since we're not going to run wine as root.)
ldconfig
Then, as gentoox:

Code: Select all

cd ~/
mkdir .wine
ln -s .wine .transgaming
ln -s .wine .winex
cd /wine
./tools/wineinstall
(Yes, you already did this as root, do it again.  This time answer '/home/gentoox/.wine/c_drive' when it asks you where to put C)
./programs/regapi/regapi setValue < winedefault.reg
cd ~/.wine/c_drive
mkdir windows/temp
mkdir windows/system32
mkdir windows/Fonts
mkdir windows/Inf
wget  http://download.microsoft.com/msdownload/dcom/98/x86/en/dcom98.exe
wine dcom98
You should be ready to go. CD check support isn't in the CVS version, so you'll have to LEGALLY use CD check cracks to play copy protected games. However, now that dcom is installed any InstallShield installer game should install w/o error.

When typing in:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.winex.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/winex

I get this:

Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc.
(specify --help-options for a list of options)
where command is add, admin, etc.
(specify --help-commands for a list of commands
or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
(specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
Specify --help to receive this message

I believe it should read
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.winex.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/winex login

You're correct, I did that step, no idea why it didn't copy / paste from my bash history correctly. I've updated the instalation steps above.

When I last installed winex via cvs, I just used the standard procedure as sourceforge told me to do, but I didn't get it lookin like xp ;). Course I just ran it to run starcraft and ultima online. Using the standard wine look (looking like win98...) and running like wine /tmp/c/Program \Files/ULTIMA ONLINE/UO.EXE

On this install I'll try your setup, see what it's like. Thanks for the handy tutorial.

Note: Has anyone tried the winex isntall script for gentoox that's on xbins?
