Has anyone gotten wine working on Linux/PPC through Qemu?

Using the wine distrubution from the Qemu homepage, I have gotten the executable to run, but any win32 app I try to launch with it fails due to not being able to find some DLL (e.g. USER32.dll).

I think the problem is on the wine side.

I've played around with it quite a bit but have been unable to determine how to get the win32 apps to be able to load their DLLs ...

If anyone has gotten it to work, could they tell me what they did?

Thanks! :-)

Ah ha ... In order for wine to work, the variable WINEDLLPATH needs to be set to ... well, the wine dll path.

That solves that problem.

Now wine gets further ... and then stops again, this time because it can't find the "freetype font library":

Code:
Wine cannot find the FreeType font library.  To enable Wine to
use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
or equal to 2.0.5.


I pulled any file that matched *freetype* from an x86 box and put them in the correct places for qemu to serve them to wine ... still no luck.

Can anyone tell me exactly what wine is looking for when it says "freetype font library"? A specific filename would be nice ...

Thanks! :-)

Hmm... do you have freetype installed? If not, you could try emerging that giving it another go.
