    Help with wine, please.

    I have a bunch of older games, and I've been testing them out in wine. Command and Conquer Gold and Star Trek Armada II both work great, but when I try to install KKnD (its a really cheesey game) I get this error:

    name@computer:~$ wine /media/cdrom0/install.exe
    Warning: unprotecting memory to allow real-mode calls.
    NULL pointer accesses will no longer be caught.


    After that, it does nothing. Any ideas?

    Have you checked the wine app database?

    Yay well now that I know Armada 2 works, I can try & get my brother onto linux. He loves that game.
    Brown doesn't suck. And neither does wood. Download Woody. A Metacity theme.
    Note: the rm command deletes stuff! Don't be tricked into running malicious scripts. If in doubt, ask!!

    The WINE app database says that KKnD should work, but gives no help on getting it to work that I could find.

    Yes, I followed the steps on the WINE website to add the repositories and install the newest version of WINE.
