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
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 188.8.131.52 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.
Since wine is no longer part of the distribution, I guess this bug isn't
relevant any more.
