Description Grant Shipley 2008-05-15 20:59:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When running 'wine someProgramToInstall.exe' as a normal user:

[rizzo@localhost ~]$ wine SetupImgBurn_2.4.1.0.exe 
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
err:dosmem:setup_dos_mem Cannot use first megabyte for DOS address space, please
report
wine: could not load L"Z:\\home\\rizzo\\SetupImgBurn_2.4.1.0.exe": Invalid address
[rizzo@localhost ~]$ preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
err:dosmem:setup_dos_mem Cannot use first megabyte for DOS address space, please
report


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[rizzo@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa |grep wine
wine-cms-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-jack-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-core-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-tools-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-capi-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-twain-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-nas-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-ldap-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386
wine-esd-0.9.58-1.fc9.i386


How reproducible:
Always. Works fine for root user.


Actual results:
Wine crashes and program does not install

Expected results:
Wine should be able to access the address space request and program should install.

Additional info:

Workaround is the following command run as root which may open up risk of future
kernel security vulnerabilities.

/sbin/sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0


After running that command as root, normal user can install wine application as
expected.
