Howdy all,

I'm trying to get Starcraft installed with Winex (the latest Gentoo package, 20020511). I run 'winex install.exe' from my /mnt/cdrom, and everything appears to work fine - screen pops up, usual errors in the console, but nothing to be worried about, just some griping about fonts and stuff. I select 'Install Starcraft', enter my name and CD-Key, and hit install. It begins copying the files over to my hard drive - I know it actually does this because I can quick Ctr-Alt-F2 out to a terminal and see the files it has copied. However, when it gets to a certain point almost competely through the install, trying to copy a scenario map, it pops up a message that simply says "Aborted", erases all the files it has installed, and waits for me to click OK before dumping me back to the autorun screen.

I can't find anything on Transgaming's site about this happening, and can't post to their forums because I have not subscribed yet. Has anyone had this problem, and can they help me fix this? Is it simply a copy protection error?

Alternatively, what lines would I use in my /etc/fstab to autoload a FAT32 partition that was writable be me the user? I have not been able to decypher any of TFM to do this - would it help?

The info for the drive in my config:
Code:
[Drive G]
"Path" = "/home/alec/wine"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "Linux Drive"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

Check TFM of mount (man mount) then search for fat option you can read about uid=value,gid=value,umask=660 or similar add this in /etc/fstab

an example
Quote:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=660,user 0 0

Hrmm.. I didn't modify my /etc/fstab to run Starcraft in linux. I just ran the winex /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe and it insalled fine.

I got mine to install, and I can play single player, but battle.net is all screwed up with regular wine. Does it work better with winex?

WineX 2.01 from Transgaming works fine on battle.net with StarCraft 1.09b, you see enough of the login screen to type your username/password and you will be able to create join games no problem, the graphics is a bit odd up until you create or join a game.

It's working, if nothing else. :)
