    WINE drives [SOLVED]

    I am using Wine 1.1.13 in Ubuntu Hardy, and I am having a strange problem where when I try to access the "Drives" tab in winecfg. All I get is the message: "Failed to connect to the mount manager, the driver configuration cannot be edited."



    So, after googling and being a little lost, I found this which made me think my problem was running Wine in sudo, but I don't remember ever doing that.

    running "winecfg" in the terminal, then switching to the "Drives" tab has this output:

    Code:
    ~$ winecfg
    err:service:RPC_Init RpcServerUseProtseq failed with error 1703
    err:wineboot:start_services_process Unexpected termination of services.exe - exit code 1703
    err:winecfg:open_mountmgr failed to open mount manager err 2
    So, I am really curious. What is wrong and what should I do? I'm by no means an expert with linux, but I am fairly comfortable with some harder stuff. Please, if anyone knows what's wrong, help me out or point me in the right direction.

    Edit:
    I found a solution to this after searching some more. I found this command:

    Code:
    sudo rm -rvf ~/.wine
    Everything seems to be fine now.

    so am I

    even rebuilding wine from source (some folks suggested that the packages might be defect) with latest git version (1.1.24) did not fix it.

    When enabling full debug output (WINEDEBUG=+all winecfg) the error seems to be:
    "Failed to connect to the mount manager, the drive configuration cannot be edited."

    Which appears several times caused by different components.

    Re: WINE drives

    I found a solution to my version of the problem: Since I use CUDA I had to use the NVIDIA 185 beta drivers (as ***buntu does/did not provide drivers with CUDA support). I now reverted to 180.22 (which are stable for Hardy and Intrepid but not officially supported by jauntys newer X server). So I had to edit /etc/gdm/gdm.cfg and add -ignoreABI to the server command (somewhere close to the end of the config file)
    Not X runs again and wine does so too.
    Isn't it nice that a graphics driver problem causes an error in the mount manager? I love intelligently designed software....

    Re: WINE drives

    Same problem!

    By the way, for anyone who needs to access their cd rom drive and the devices tab isn't working even with that command, you can do a symlink in your ~/.wine/dosdevices directory.

    sudo ln -s path_name_here ~/.wine/dosdevices/e:

    or if you don't want to use e: you can change it to whatever as long as no other drive is in that slot.

    Your cdrom directory is usually in your /media/cdrom0 folder

    that would come out to

    Code:
    sudo ln -s /media/cdrom0  ~/.wine/dosdevices/e:
    worked for me anyways
