I've been having a problem with wine and the latest kernel (well 2.6 release actually). None of the windows programs would run. (And they used to!)

r2dtu discovered what the problem was. It was a fix in the release version of the kernel, that insists on having valid permissions. (I thought the fix was worthwhile enough to post it here, but congrats goes to r2dtu).

The solution is to edit the /etc/fstab file and for each drive you use windows on, add exec to the options.

For Example
Code:
 
/dev/hda1               /mnt/win_c      vfat                    user,rw,exec,gid=1001,umask=0                   0 0


All of a sudden everythings working again. Isn't Opensource wonderful!
