Default problem with cedega - segmentation fault line 348...

This a really long post so bare with me, i already did a lot of research.....

ok this is what happened,

first off, i quite new to linux (yes another one)
I recently installer Mandrake Powerpack 10.1, on my PC.

i managed to install some program i needed, and after a while i felt like i was starting to get around...

So i decided to install cedega, to try to play Diablo 2 in linux, instead of continually switching back from linux to windows.

Everything went fine, and before i knew it i was playing diablo2 on my lan....


My problem is that after a while i decided to try out Suse an got rid of my "temporary" Mandrake Install.

But i ended up not liking Suse as much as Mandrake (had issues after my installtion so i formatted and reinstalled Mandrake)

so mandrake is reinstalled, i reinstall my programs, like before, and reinstall cedega, but when i try to start anything a get this error message :

[toxic@localhost toxic]$ cedega "/mnt/win_e/Diablo II/Diablo II.exe"
/usr/bin/cedega: line 348: 4691 Segmentation fault $SHELL -c "$RUNWINE $WINVER -debugmsg $DEBUGMSG -use-dos-cwd $WORKDIR $EJECT $DT -- $COMMAND_LINE"

this is with diablo2 but i tested with any *.exe file and nothing happen except the error.

now i googled a lot in the past weeek aboiut this problem but i didnt find anything (except this maybe related to nvidia drviers ???) The only website talking about something resembling my problem, where in some obscure and unknown language (be me atleast).

So now i have a clean install of mandrake , as before and i cannot play anygame (through cedega)

Does anyone as any clue what can be the source of my problem...

as basic info, i'm running on a geforcefx 5900xt with nvidia 6111 driver, on dual screen with xinerama (as before, when it was working), i got an nforce2 ultra chipsetr on asus a7n8x mobo... 1gig ram, so definetly enough.... same files, same install...

mandrake 10.1, kernel : - (base kernel in this distro) as nvidia 6111, preinstalled drivers... (as before)

i tryed running cedega in my session and in root, with no success. Tryed reinstalling it in different seesion, as root, anything....

oh and i also tried editing the cedega binary to see what is on line 348 (in my error msg), but line 348 is the endoffile.

i also tried
as suggested elsewhere

The first time it was working (before i formatted) , the only difference ...

before : "/" is ext2 fs, 6 gig...
after : "/" is reiserfs, 30 gig, with 600mg swap file (same program installed, only difference is that i installed samba server, should really not matter)

still have the same video driver and everything else...

(all config files are standard, not modified, as i didnt modify them the first time y installed....)

well gonna continu looking on the net for those to error (line 348 and line 87 (error line 87 happens with cvscedega)), unfortunatly most of the webpage discussing them are in some unknow language...


i tried with a lot of .exe, including notepad.exe and calc.exe, but the problem is not the exe because it gives me the same error no matter what...

my driver are installed properly, currently version 6111 (wich are preinstalled in mandrake 10.1 powerpack)

i did every test in ppoint2play, and passed them all.

direct rendering is on


well, back at my place, i redid the --debugmsg

cedega --debugmsg +all "/mnt/win_c/windws/system32/calc.exe"

it gives me something like this :

a lot of debugmsg
from 001-
to 244-

this is the debug it gives me...
i didnt post it all, because it was like 10 pages long....
but it goes all the ways to 001

ex: 247 - 0002:trace:heap:RtlAllocateHeap
where 247 downs to 001.....

hope this help you to help me :)

EDIT, and so you know i did try wine (pure) and got it "working", but it is just not an option for me rigth now...


well thats it for now, hope someone will have a clue!
