I get the general idea, but since I have two optical drives, not just one, things are a bit more complicated. In / I've got /media/cdroms/0 and /media/cdroms/1; in /usr/home/kline is: ~/cdroms/0 and ~/cdroms/1 . For some reason winecfg didn't understand this and I had to type in the /usr/home/kline/cdrom/0 by hand. It is listed as H: That's fine; but in an xterm/Konsole messages kept getting printed to stderr so it looks like winecfg isn't looking at my 1sr optical drine. I've tried mount /media/cdroms/cd0 /mnt and other ploys. Zip. IMO, anybody who has tried to do the ``impossible'' (wine) deserves a gold medal ... but I can't make it work. gary -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
