Skyrim: Elder Scrolls

I have installed steam and it seems to be functioning just fine. Now I am trying to get my son’s Skyrim: Elder Scrolls game to function. I few weird things have happened. We tried to install it from the disc, but the disc is not recognized by either of my DVD optical drives. Neither one spins up when the disk is inserted.

My son has it running on steam. He set it up and configured it on Mom’s Windoze computer. When we fire up steam on my Suse box:

OS:Linux 3.4.11-2.16-desktop x86_64
System: openSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)
KDE: 4.8.5 (4.8.5) “release 2”:

it syncs up, but then throws an error when it tries to open the game.

 Unhandled exception: unimplemented function msvcp90.dll.??0?$basic_ifstream@_WU?$char_traits@_W@std@@@std@@QAE@PB_WHH@Z called in 32-bit code (0x7b83bed2).

There seems to be a lot of information in here that might be helpful, but it is beyond my comprehension. I notice that it runs in Wine on other distros, but not Suse. Perhaps someone with the knowledge and skill to get it going could work this out. This games is getting very popular and I am sure many people would be thrilled to have it function on Suse.

If this is not the place to make this inquire, please let me know where I should be making it. Thank you.

Hello. I could not find much information about this. It seems Wine in openSUSE does have this dll, at the least it shows up under installed files for me. (I am using openSUSE 12.2 64-bit but with wine i586 rpm). I have heard it mentioned to use winetricks and install vcrun2008.

This thread here says to try to install winbind. That seems illogical but worth a shot. I believe the package you need under openSUSE 64-bit would be samba-winbind or perhaps samba-winbind-32-bit if that doesn’t work. WineHQ - Comments

Sorry my answers are incomplete, hopefully they help though. The disc not reading is kind of odd also.

Thanks but no joy. I have been trying various things using Wine and PlayonLinux without success.

One thing that I am still mystified by is, why do my optical drives ignore the installation DVD?

You can try a few things. One is to check the log after you insert the cd to see if there are any errors.

dmesg | tail

Also you can try mounting it manually. This is assuming the device is /dev/sr0 (it might not be).

mkdir /mnt/dvdrom
mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/dvdrom

To un-mount:

umount /mnt/dvdrom

Your Wine version is old. That function was implemented in 1.5.13. Upgrade to the latest development release (currently 1.5.20).
