wine at 100% cpu & hang with wordview97.exe
Last modified: 2008-07-12 09:11:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Install wordview97.exe, installer gets to "Setup is searching for installed
components..." then acmsetup winevdm.exe & wineserver take 100%cpu in equal
parts and the disk thrashes about
xlview97.exe goes fine
(So did wordview97.exe when I was back with fc5 a couple of months ago.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wine
2. Install wordview97.exe
Hang; cpu 100%
Given the importance of checking .doc files, suggest an higher than average priority
Did you try with a clean ~/.wine folder?
It was the first thing I installed post wine install, so I assume yes. But,
I'll try again after moving the present ~/.wine folder.
Yes, moved the ~/.wine folder - same results
Is this still reproducible with the latest wine version?
Fixed - thanks
[morgan@morgansmachine Windoze]$ rpm -q wine
btw, Word Viewer 2003 also installs and runs, so I'm using it
