CentOS 7 with the Mate desktop or the Gnome 3 desktop installs Wine 1.8-1 from the epel repository. When I attempt to install the Windows app I get the following error:
Code: Select all
[ken@vmCentOS7Mate-2 Desktop]$ wine GrabIt173b.exe fixme:service:scmdatabase_autostart_services Auto-start service L"MountMgr" failed to start: 2 wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\home\ken\Desktop\GrabIt173b.exe.
Even stranger... I built a Fedora 23 virtual machine and installed Wine. It is version 1.9.1 (Staging) whatever that signifies. This version of Wine crashes when attempting to auto-detect drives during the Wine Configuration. However, the subject Windows programs install successfully.
My search on the error messages seems to keep bringing up a couple of threads which seem to quickly degenerate into shouting fests telling the OP that he should not be installing the Windows program which he needs and the OP defending why he needs to do so. Nothing in the way of a solution.
As a test I disabled SELINUX on one of my test machines. Wine install still does not work.
I see another issue on one of the Wine 1.8 test machines when I access Wine configuration; Drives tab
This error cleared after a yum autoremove wine, delete of my .wine directory and reinstallation of wine. After attempting and failing to install a program I find that the mount manager error is back. Further testing shows that simply deleting my .wine directory removes the error.Failed to connect to the mount manager, the drive configuration cannot be edited.
I have sort of stormed my brain out. Any suggestions? I have no idea how to proceed. There are too many parts, pieced and dependencies to consider building wine from source. Nor do I want to go gram a bunch of rpms - I do not want to get out of sync with the repos.
