Installing Wine In Hardy Heron

Wine is a software application which aims to allow Unix-like computer operating systems on the x86 architecture to execute programs that were originally written for Microsoft Windows.

There are two methods to installing Wine
1. Install Wine from Ubuntu's own repository, it is an older but officially supported version for Hardy Heron.
In a terminal type:
sudo apt-get install wine

2. Add Wine's own repository, this gives you the newest version of Wine and access to all future updates
In a terminal type:
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Next, add the repository to your system's source list:
In a terminal type:
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

Update Your Source List:
In a terminal type:
sudo apt-get update

Install Wine
In a terminal type:
sudo apt-get install wine

Once installed (either method) you can configure Wine by running:
winecfg

Make Wine Graphical User Interface Match Ubuntu's
Ina terminal type:
gedit ~/.wine/user.reg

Replace the [Control Panel\\Colors] section with

Tested with the ubuntu repository.

Any ideas? Thanks...

Well, Wine was working great for me until I upgraded to Hardy.

Now all I get is this:

wine[27534]: segfault at 4a6c3f68 rip 4a6c3f68 rsp fff7233c error 15

I get this error, "preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000". I tried different versions of Wine and it didn't help..

When I entered the command `winecfg` in a terminal, the message returned was:

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:874:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on MPU-401 UART, disabling mixer
Could not load Mozilla. HTML rendering will be disabled.
wine: configuration in '/home/rick/.wine' has been updated.
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:874:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on MPU-401 UART, disabling mixer

Should I be worried?
