Have been a PCLOS user since 2004. Pre "Big Daddy" I believe...
Thanks for another great release. Been patiently waiting for this one. It is worth the wait.
On that note, after a clean install of 2010 KDE, (latest kernel) I used Synaptic, did a "Reload", searched for "WINE" and waited for the download and install process to complete.
I then selected "Wine Configurator" from the main menu, and here is what happens:
A small window (Wine) tries to display, then immediately I get an error window on top of that.
This process continues until I hard reboot the machine.
I have let the process run just to see how many windows it would try to build, and once it quit at the 96th instance.)
This tells me I need to get out more among many things.
I have tried using the ProcMon to kill it, but it keeps perpetually making new windows faster than I can kill them.
I also tried killing the window/process with the Ctrl-Alt-Esc death skull sequence. No joy there.
CPU usage goes through the roof and I am unable to do anything else with the computer after I start Wine.
I have tried running Wine from a Konsole and get the same problem.
Have also tried all the other options in the Wine menu, and as soon as the "primary" Wine window tries to launch,
this perpetual window creation problem occurs and another reboot is in my immediate future.
BTW, it should be noted this happens on three different computers...
Here are the hardware specs of the machine I would really like to get working:
Latest Kernel (Clean PCLOS 2010 KDE CD Install, including reformatting all partitions.)
Dell Precision 330 Server(corrected)
1.2 Ghz processor
1 Gig RAM
32 Meg Video RAM
Let me know if there any commands I can run or if I need to run an older version of Wine, or if
after searching the Forum as I already have, I just plain missed something...
I have been known to not only be the master of the obvious, but to miss the obvious as well.
Just looking for some guidance.
