    Errors while installing Oblivion under Wine.

    I have been trying to install Oblivion (5th anniversary just in case it matters...) using Wine 1.4 and Ubuntu 12.0.4,
    When I first tried it I received this screen and error;

    Here is a copy of terminal when installing it;

    Code:
    cathal@Zenithex:~$ cd /media/Oblivion
    cathal@Zenithex:/media/Oblivion$ wine setup.exe
    cathal@Zenithex:/media/Oblivion$ fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation 0x2d4000 0 0x23fcb0 4

    I have restarted my PC twice going straight to installing before opening anything else, but still the same error

    Thanks for any help, I am completely new to Ubuntu and Wine!

    check UESP website (unnoficial elder scrolls page). unfortunatelly i can not give you the exactl link to the installation page right now as that site is blocked where i work. However i do know they have good instructions on how to install and run Oblivion in linux.

    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    Re: Errors while installing Oblivion under Wine.

    another option is to try to install it using playon linux. they could have some settings in there to install it. the version of the game probably matters.

    if you check the wine appdb you will see various version and you can also see that sometimes with newer verison of wine certain game version with gold rating on old wine got a silver rating on new wine. so play on linux might solve this.

    best just google "oblivion (add your exact version) wine appdb"
    there are plenty of tips , tricks and worarrounds there. though i am guessing install should still work ok.

    I had problems trying to install Oblivion under Wine on my son's PC, I nearly gave up. Instead I used PlayOnLinux which makes things simple. It automatically downloads and installs the appropriate version of Wine, Wine Geeko and some other essential which I didn't note down. If you want to patch Oblivion, which you will no doubt, look for the file in the .wine folder of PlayonLinux rather than in .wine in Home.
    enjoy.

    You probably need to install some frameworks and libraries first. If you don't wanna use PoL, winetricks is sufficient.

    Code:
    winetricks oblivion
    This is my signature
