New User With Wine Related Problem
« on: April 27, 2011, 10:40:41 AM »
Hi, I am new to Tinycore Linux but not new to linux in general having moved from Windows XP to Ubuntu just over two years ago.

However, I am attempting to get TC running specifically to run a single Windows application under wine in an embedded environment. I have the Windows app running fine in Wine 1.2.2 on my Ubuntu 10.04 system without issue so I know that the app does work. The application in question is Jukebox Simulator (http://www.jukeboxsimulator.com). At the moment I am testing TC as a guest OS in Virtualbox (Ubuntu as the host).

I have TC running fine and have installed the OSS sound system. I have installed Wine and in winecfg I have configured the sound and that is working also. However, when I run the Windows app jbsim.exe I get the following message:

err:seh:raise_exception Exception frame is not in stack limits => unable to dispatch exception

The version of wine I have is the same as is running in my Ubuntu system so I know it should be able to run the app ok.

Can anyone give me an indication of what this error message is telling me or any idea where my problem lies please.


Thanks for any help

Russell

Out of curiousity I downloaded it and ran it in VMware Player. I configured wine for OSS and ran jbsim.exe. It ran fine, and when I pressed "C" I heard a sound effect. This makes a nifty appliance with only 25MB of extensions other than open-vm-tools-x.

Yes, it ran fine in Ubuntu as well. I just don't know why I'm having problems getting it to run in Tinycore.

I ran it in Tiny Core 3.5.1. I executed:

tce-load -wi open-vm-tools-x
sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/open-vm-tools-x start
tce-load -wi wine
tce-load -wi OSS
winecfg
wine jbsim.exe

Make sure you are running wine as the tc user.

Could you explain that bit to me please. How do I run wine as a TC user.

Thanks for that. Sometimes I need the simple things pointing out to me :D

I'm definately running it as the TC user.

I ran the latest version of jbsim (1.31), but I don't know if that makes a difference. It might be virtualbox somehow, or some other variable. If you went through the exact steps I did (except for open-vm-tools) on the same version of TC and it won't run for you, then I'm out of ideas.
