Nexus: The Jupiter Incident demo crashes at startup - confirmation needed


There is the 10th anniversary of "Nexus: The Jupiter Incident" and
wanted to play it again. Unfortunately both GOG version as well as a
demo crashes at startup (with both nexus_DX8.exe and nexus_DX9.exe).
Nexus seems to work fine with Wine [1] in the past and I wonder if it is
a repression in Wine or something with my system/hardware.

I have a laptop with "Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor
Family Integrated Graphics Controller" (so probably Intel HD 3000/2000),
but this game is from 2004 and I played with it on GeForce 2 MX which
much less powerful than mentioned Intel HD.
Selinux was switched into permissive mode.
wine-1.7.18-1.fc19.x86_64 (from the official Fedora repository)

1. Do you have any idea what could be a problem (backtrace [3])?
2. Could someone check Nexus demo [2] to verify that the game
crashes/works fine?

New research, a new funding tool! Measuring if Moon Gravity Effects Grape Berries

Hello wine-users,

We, David and Catarina have started to carry out new research in/on
winemaking. And we also want to test if crowdfunding is an option to fund
scientific research.

Re: the winemaking, we want to verify a very simple hypothesis: if the moon
effects the quality of grapevine berries, just like it effects high tides
and low tides.

Sounds esoteric, but it's actually a very scientific approach. (It is not a
joke, as you may assume =)

We want to carry out a simple experiment, measuring the circumference of
grapevine berries (its volume) and comparing the data with data on the
changing moon cycles and lunar gravities (basically with high tide and low
tide a long two moon cycles, from this mid June 2014).

To make this happen, we wish to buy a couple of precision dentrometers,
small devices that measure very small variations in grape berry size.
Because such dendrometers are quite expensive (around EUR 500 for a system,
see image below), we have put up a crowdfunding page
This page allows many people to sponsor us, with relatively small amounts.

We have created a short video to explain our project, at our crowdfunding

Should we not achieve our funding traget, you will not be charged. So all

winedbg set breakpoint on recv

Hello everyone,

I would like to set a breakpoint on the recv function. However, when I run the following command in winedbg:

Wine-dbg>break recv
Breakpoint 1 at 0x... recv in

it sets a breakpoint in libc, instead of setting the breakpoint in ws2_32 which would have the recv function
on windows (

I am able to set breakpoints for WSARecv and WSARecvFrom:

Wine-dbg>break WSARecv
Breakpoint 2 at 0x... WSARecv in ws2_32

Wine-dbg>break WSARecvFrom
Breakpoint 3 at 0x... WSARecvFrom in ws2_32

How do I set a breakpoint on the recv function in ws2_32?

Thanks in advance!

Lightroom 4 in Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity2D

When I run Adobe Lightroom 4 in Wine in Ubuntu 12.04, it works fine with 
the standard Unity3D window manager, but when I use Unity2D, it is not 
possible to show the import photo dialog, Lightroom just hangs.

This seems to be some kind of window management issue. Anyone knows how 
to solve it?

But do you have keyboard input in a 'standard' wine?

[1.7.16 Beta]-Emulate a virtual desktop & Steam Client-No Keyboard?

[1.7.16 Beta]-Emulate a virtual desktop & Steam Client-No Keyboard?


I am running Kubuntu 14.04 64Bit fully updated and WINE v.1.7.16 Beta.
I setup WINE to have a emulated virtual desktop(1024x768)
but when I run Valve's Steam game client in WINE I have no keyboard input?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

audio reset failed


I receive periodically the following error popup window when I use wine
"Audio Reset Failed: Access violation at address 7BC503AA in module
'ntdll.dll'. Write of address F818611C"

The message is the same every time. Even the addresses 7BC503AA and
7BC503AA are the same.

When it occurs the audio hangs up and only the restart of the wine
application helps.
I use 64-bit Arch Linux and run 32 bit wine applications.
Wine version is wine 1.7.14-1 (32 bit).

The /proc/≤wine app's PID>/maps is as follows. I can see that memroy region
ffbd0000-ffbf0000 is not writtable and the memory region 7bc10000-7bc11000
is most likely BSS.

uninstalling something that didn't work

I found I had a disk of TurboCAD LTE, and installed it in Wine on 
PCLOS-32-KDE, but it wouldn't run. I have tried to get rid of it, and I 
don't know if I have
found all the instances of it, since neither  "Find Files" gui nor 
locate pointed to any of them. so I poked around in the various 
directories, and I think I found
most or all instances, but if I start Wine, it shows "IMSI Design 
TurboCAD LTE 4" and that entry points to 5 more files, but they are not 
removable from
that utility.  I don't know if any of them are still on the system.
As a matter of interest, I cannot seem to get into any of the c: or d: 
(etc.) directories from a  terminal, but I can find them in Konqueror 
and the unwanted
programs in them that I can find I can delete via this GUI.
Before I clutter up the system with something else that may not work, 
I'd like to know how to clean out those things that don't!

I would run WordPerfect from the shell and see if there is anything
interested in the messages that wine echos to the shell.

Also you may want to go to the forum instead. The mailing list these
days is not that active. You will get better help at the forum.
