Two things: First: Please move your ~/.wine directory somewhere and start
winecfg and see if it works. Second: If you have the proprietary nvidia or ati
driver installed remove them and try again. Please let me know if it works.

I tried moving .wine directory but still get problem when running winecfg

I do get this error message when running from terminal

[root@localhost ~]# winecfg
err:reg:SCSI_getprocentry SCSI type line scan count error (fscanf returns 1,
expected 2)
