I am having a problem with Wine since version 1.5.25 and onward and the various emul-linux-x86-*-20130224 it pulls.
I currently playing two games (that work correctly with Wine up to 1.5.24) that give the following issues:
- LOTRO: start correctly, but it randomly (sometime after few minutes, sometime after longer time) close without any error;
- SWTOR: it doesn't start and it hung on the loading screen (it seems the problem that SWTOR normally have on unpatched wine, but I am using "swtor_fix.exe" that fixes the problem, but only on wine up to 1.5.24).
Due to time constraint I never had the chance to post on the relative Wine AppDB pages, but now considering that no one else posted a similar problem on those pages and in the meantime Wine released 5 versions so far (from 1.5.25 to 1.5.29), I don't think that it is a regression on Wine code itself, but probably it is a specific Gentoo issue with emul-linux-x86-*-20130224 (Wine up to 1.5.24 uses the 20121202 version).
I have the following emul-linux-x86-* (I don't remember which ones are pulled directly by Wine and which ones are dependencies to other programs I have installed):
What can I do to track the origin of the issue?
I am using the 64 bit version of Gentoo if it matters.
Thank in advance.
