View Full Version : "multiple hooks" problem

March 16th, 2009, 01:10 PM
Hi all!
I am trying to make a Windows game work on my sister's newly installed ubuntu.. The game at issue is "Grandpa pacman", a clone of the classic Pac Man which can be easily found as freeware (for example here: http://www.yosemite-sam.net/gpac13.zip). The game installs correctly with wine (version 1.1.17), but does not run. The only line of error which wine prints out is the following:
fixme:hook:SetWindowsHookEx16 Multiple hooks (5) for the same task not supported yet
Then, a small window titled "Error" appears, in which there is only the following statement: "Hook problem..." and an "OK" button to close it.
My question is: is there a way to persuade wine to run that particular game, or is the "hook problem" a serious one?

Thanks! :D

P.S.: I really want to make that particular game work, as my sister likes it so much :)
