Re: Wine broken (or is it FC6)

After updating to Wine 0.9.30 , winecfg was crashing my Nvidia X
server -- fixed by getting the latest from Nvidia (legacy so it is the
last 6 series update).   However, I am still having the same problem
initializing Wine.

I have tried:
- 2.6.18 kernel
- 2.6.19 and full update
- SELinux turned off -- problem persists.
- wine 0.9.29 from tarball and rpm, and 0.9.30 from tarball
- removing and reinstlaling msttf fonts
- restarting computer and restarting xfs

Each time, winecfg hangs the first time it is run and creates
.wine-xxxx where xxxx is
a temp dir.  It is not using CPU cycles so it appears to be hung.  If
I kill it, move the
.wine-xxx dir to .wine, then run winecfg, I get a window frame which
just displays the info behind the window (other windows and
background, no text, no icons, nothing else).

I have the same problem when trying to run any other wine applicaiton.

Note that when I had 0.9.2 (?) on my box, winecfg worked fine.  Only
after I did a yum install wine with the old wine still in
/usr/local/*, did the problem start.

Can someone point me to log files or command switches I can use to try
to diagnose this problem?  I read of some others having similar
problems but never found a resolution.  I basically have very litte to
go on myself.  I've spent two nights on this and am getting

I have wine working just fine on my FC6 x86_64 box.  I suggest you use
the wine RPMs from extras.  Here is what I have (yes, this is a 64-bit
install, wine is only available 32-bit):
$ rpm -qa | grep wine

I am not sure what is going on with your system.  Is there anything in
any logs that might give more clues as to what is happening?  I have
had some font issues on a 32-bit CentOS machine where no text would
display on anything running under wine.  This sounds different,
though.  I don't know.  Are there any more details you can provide us?
 Are you using AIGLX?  Have you tried without it?  What about SELinux?
 Just trying to rule out possibilities...
