Wine 1.5.20 Ubuntu 12.10 FUBAR woes...
Hmmz. Ok, I'm starting to see a pattern here I don't particularly like with the latest Wine update.
After I updated Wine to version 1.5.20 today and afterwards my perfectly working Far Cry 2 failed to start. And coincidentally also my Deus Ex: HR refused to start.
When trying to install an older game that always used to work perfectly now also failed (Mass Effect 2)
I went to check the forums and lo and behold:
This problem with the latest wine seems to happen to people across all different kind of games.
So now I see problems with Eve online: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...1#post12427861
Check Sim city Deluxe SE: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=95
And World of WarCraft: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...postcount=2489
So, Houston we definitely have a serious problem with the latest wine update.
So, stay away from it untill there's a solve announced.
And I especially don't like this myself since I had a gaming evening planned for now!!
Meanwhile, if anybody knows how to reverse to the previous version 1.5.19 I'd be very interested to know.
