Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 417121
Black screen when starting some wine programs
Last modified: 2008-06-17 14:17:21 EDT
Description of problem:
In clean wine setup, when running winemine and regedit I'm getting black screen.
Then you can click somewhere and window of regedit or winemine is get minimized
and you can close it. And sometimes after clicking window is staying onscreen
but it's black inside.
Other wine programs (winefile, notepad and winhelp) are running fine.
I'm using xorg-nv driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run rededit or winemine.
Completely black screen.
See window of program.
All was working fine in Fedora 7.
I want correct myself, in Fedora 7 there was different configuration, so it can
also not work there.
Also, with nvidia proprietary driver all is working in FC8.
I can not reproduce this here with the latest version. Did you try to move your
~/.wine directory out of the way as described here:
Do other applications show similar problems?
Yes, I tried it with clean .wine.
Yes, same in IE5 and IE5.5, but not in IE6.
May be it happens in only specific combination of hardware and drivers? I have
this problem on geforce mx440 with nv driver.
Is this still an issue with the latest wine version?
In Fedora 9, this one seems not to be issue with latest wine.
Thanks for responding. If it pops up again feel free to reopen.
