ELF and Wine

ELF and Wine

Post by Allin Cottrel » Tue, 13 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I an running an a.out kernel (1.2.13) and a.out X11, but I recently updated my
gcc to ELF, following the Linux-ELF howto (to the letter, I think).

Now I'm having problems trying to compile Wine.  Things roll along OK until we
get to the library linkage, then it can't find Xpm.  My Xpm files are in
/usr/i486-linuxaout/lib (where I moved them as part of the ELF routine).  Does
the "can't find" message mean that I need to get an ELF version of Xpm and put
it in /usr/X11R6/lib?  And the same for the next libraries up, Xext and X11?  If
that's the case, it sounds bothersome, and I might be better off compiling Wine
as a.out.  So, second question: How do I force the whole process to go a.out
instead of ELF?  I guess I need the compiler flag "-b i486-linuxaout", but do I
need to reset anything else?

Thanks for any help.

Questions related to wine are probably better off in
comp.emulators.ms-windows.wine.

Yes, you need ELF shared libraries to either compile or run any ELF
application. You will need to get ELF versions of these libraries
eventually anyway, if you want to keep running pre-compiled
applications. As for Wine, it will have no problem running on an ELF
system.

Why change to a new library format?  What is it really buying us except
having to keep two or more versions of libraries on our drives!

I wouldn't have a problem with ELF if someone would write the linker/loader
so an application can use ELF libs *AND* the older libs!

I think this is a major compatability snafoo!

1. Wine,wine,wine - I need help with wine

Help
I down loaded and installed Wine to Linux 2.0.22 and Xwindows (XFree).
I think it's installed correctly.  I am getting a 'drive not found/path
not found' error.  I have my wine.conf in the right place (I think).
I'm using Win95 and hda3 and Linux on hda1.  I need a reality check.  Is
it hard to set up Wine?  Does someone have a working wine.conf file that
might guide me to a working wine.   Wine,wine,wine and beer. Ok I'll
stop wineing

Thanks
George
