Description of problem:
Using the kernel release above would break wine with an error of:
wine: failed to create the process heap
None of the previous FC2 release kernels exhibited this behavior.
Neither the trick of using "setarch i386" nor "echo 0 >
/proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield" (documented elsewhere) made a difference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to kernel-2.6.8-1.521
2. Execute "wine" or any wine-executable
Downgrade to kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and the problem goes away.
Forgot to mention ... using wine-0.20040505-1.rhfc2.nr
I am having a similar problem with an old Loki game civctp. Worked
fine up to kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2. Stopped working with
I tried setarch i386 and echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/legacy_va_layout
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
Yep, I have update to fedora core 3 and civctp still doesn't work
Is this an issue with vanilla upstream latest kernel, using the same
/boot/config-* as the Fedora kernel?
Ultimately this isn't our problem and it is wine that needs to be
fixed, but it would be good to know if any configuration option in
particular triggers this failure in wine.
Have you tried WineX (Cedega)?
how about the latest 2.6.10 update errata kernels ?
Upgraded my machines to FC3 so I can't test on the FC2 platform. However, on FC3
with kernel-2.6.10-1.741_FC3 and wine-20041201-1fc3winehq, worksforme.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
