Description Göran Uddeborg 2002-06-19 14:51:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020528

Description of problem:
Running wine on any program gives a warning about missing WinMM section in the
configuration file.  This is with the default /etc/wine.reg coming with the
package.  It seems it would make sense to add such a section to the default file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):20020327-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run "wine prog.exe" for any windows program prog.exe.

Actual Results:  These error messages are issued:

err:mmsys:MMDRV_InitHardcoded You didn't setup properly the config file for the
Wine multimedia modules.
Will use the hard-coded setup, but this will disappear soon.
Please add a WinMM section to your Wine config file.

(The program still runs though, this is not a fatal error.)

The is a reference to winmm in the config files of the latest wine package. I hope that it fixes 
this, but I cannot test this as I have absolutely no Windows program to test it. Please test it 
with wine-20020605-1 (soon in rawhide) and reopen this report if the problem still exists.

I can't find any WinMM *section* in wine-20020605-1 wine.reg.  Maybe you refer
to the reference to winmm in the DllOverrides section?

But what is missing is an WinMM section as described in section of the
Wine configuration documentation.,

I found a sample configuration file with this content:

"Drivers" = "wineoss.drv"
#"Drivers" = "winearts.drv"
"WaveMapper" = "msacm.drv"
"MidiMapper" = "midimap.drv"

I added that to my wine.reg, and that helped removing to complaint from wine. 
Otherwise Wine seems to work to the same extent it did before; things didn't get
neither worse nor better.
Comment 3 Göran Uddeborg 2003-09-15 08:24:45 EDT
Since wine is no longer part of the distribution, I guess this bug isn't
relevant any more.
