    Default Wine configuration w/ OpenSuse


    Hello everyone, I had a problem and I was wondering if anyone could
    help. I recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 and am enjoying it. I was using
    Kubuntu and have found one snag with my transition to OpenSuse. I would
    like to get iTunes 8.02 running in OpenSuse like I had been running been
    in Kubuntu.

    The way I got it working in Kubuntu was by following the instructions
    on the wine page here 'WineHQ - iTunes 8.0.2'
    (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=14793)

    I'm not so familliar with rpm based systems so if anyone would be
    willing to help me I would really apricate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS
    No I can't really use an alternative because I use an iPhone and need
    the ability to sync.

    It look like the only thing to worry about is the MSI

    If I were you I would get this repo:

    'Index of /repositories/Education/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/)
    make sure wine is from this repo

    Possibly consider using this: 'winetricks - The Official Wine Wiki'
    (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks)

    to download:
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

    to install MSI
    sh winetricks msi2

    Ok I:
    1 Uninstalled the yast placed wine
    2 Deleted my .wine directory
    3 Ran winecfg to recreate the .wine directory
    4 Downloaded the winetricks script
    5 Ran the MSI install script eg "sh winetricks msi2" with no errors
    6 Tried to run the itunes installer. What happened was a "Prepereing to
    install" window came up then suddenly disappeared.

    I don't know if this would help but this is the output I got

    user@linux-miqb:~> wine /home/user/Desktop/iTunesSetup.exe
    fixme:sfc:SFC_3 0
    errle:create_server class {000c101c-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} not

    stub
    fixme:advapieregisterEventSource (0xcafe4242) stub

    Any Ideas?

    This is something you will just have to work on.

    A thought: Did you keep a copy of your .wine folder from kubuntu?

    I have done this in the past and just pasted it over to my new install.
    Everything just works.
    You would have re-make menu items though in kicker.

    The wine forums may offer better help. Try installing more of the
    features offered by winetricks
