I have no idea what happened there. But since this is apparently a new installation, just completely delete the ~/.wine directory, and the Wine C: directory if you created it anywhere other than within ~/.wine.

Now type "wine notepad" or just "notepad". Wine should automatically create a new ~/.wine directory and populate it with everything needed. If not, try to say exactly what messages were printed.

Btw What I Noticed while Searching Google is That ppl
talk about RH 9 and RH 9 (Shrike) are they two different
entities or one and the same.

One and the same.

My installation shows its a RH 9 (Shrike)

Can this be a Cause ?


I will send exact Messages I Received by next Post.

Thanks and Best Regards
