Insufficient Disk Space reported under wine

Did you try to install/setup any Windows Application - actually a Game what else could be necessary - and got a message that you do not have enough free space on your drive meanwhile you had lot of free space on the chosen mounted partition? You will learn the problem and hopefully the solution too. (Of course I suppose it is not the real situation you have no enough space. If so do not read ahead.) The problem is that wine does not check the amount of free space on the mounted partition corresponds to the selected directory but reports the free on the root of the directory the partition mounted to . ;( Probably it is not clean so here is an example: Let say you have / only and something is mounted as /mnt/part1 If you directly select /mnt/part1 during installation wine will check free space in fact on / and does not calculate free on the partition mounted under /mnt/part1. How to solve it you may ask? It is easy. Start winecfg and create a new drive with the directory you want to us

Ubuntu Gutsy 64bit Wine misses ssl support so Google Picasa can not sign in.

Today I have realized that Picasa - I am using "windows version" of picasa under wine - can not sign me in - means no web upload is possible - from my home machine (Ubuntu Gutsy 64bit) and wine showed the following error: fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x33afd4 fixme:wininet:InternetSetOptionW Option INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_TIMEOUT (10000): STUB fixme:wininet:InternetSetOptionW INTERNET_OPTION_SEND/RECEIVE_TIMEOUT not supported on protocol 1 fixme:wininet:NETCON_init can't use SSL, not compiled in. I was a bit surprised since Picasa on my office notebook (Ubuntu Feisty 32bit) worked fine. So checked the error and decided to recompile wine and see if ssl is really not compiled in. First I downloaded the source and dependencies needed to compile. # apt-get build-dep wine I would mention that it will download a lot. Then downloaded wine source too into a temporary directory and tried to compile. # mkdir /tmp/wine_build # cd /tmp/wine_build # apt-get source wine # cd wi

Line6 PodXT Linux Driver 0.7.2 is incompatible with kernel >= 2.6.22

I have updated my Ubuntu Feisty to Gutsy some weeks ago because of a problem booting up from raid . Upgrade solved the issue but brought some others. One of the most serious to me was that the Linux Line6 PodXt driver could not be compiled anymore. The error I got was: make default make -C /lib/modules/2.6.22-12-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2 modules make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.22-12-generic' CC [M] /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.o /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c: In function ‘snd_pod_trigger’: /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:40: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘snd_pcm_group_for_each’ /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:40: error: expected ‘;’ before ‘{’ token /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:33: warning: unused variable ‘err’ /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:32: warning: unused variable ‘s’ make[2]: *** [/home/user1/works
