Amiga WinUAE emulator fails to start in WINE

Post by Ral-Clan » Sun Sep 19, 2021 8:35 pm

Hi,

I've used WinUAE in WINE (under Linux) for years. Hadn't used it for about a month and went to start it today and got the following error message (starting from terminal):

000f:err:service: process_send_command receiving command result timed out
0023:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bee54e0 "loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread 0023, blocked by 0025, retrying (60 sec)
000f:err:service: process_send_command receiving command result timed out
X Error of failed request: GLXBadFBConfig
Major opcode of failed request: 152 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 0 ()
Serial number of failed request: 261
Current serial number in output stream: 261

Funny thing is all my other Windows software still starts fine in WINE. Does anyone know what might be causing this error only with WinUAE?

WINE version: 5.0
WinUAE version: 4.4.0

Which graphics card do you have?
Does the program work with:

Code: Select all

MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 wine winuae64.exe
# or
WINEDLLOVERRIDES=dxgi=d wine winuae64.exe
Can you update Wine to version 6?

Thanks for this suggestion. It is similar to suggestions I have seen online, and I am about to try it and report back.
But I just have one question before I do. Will this cause any permanent changes to my system (i.e. which survive a reboot?) or is this a non-permanent "this session only" change?
I ask because I've read this workaround can cause problems with other software (i.e. Chrome) which I wouldn't want to be permanent.

Thanks.

When you use the above commands, it only works temporarily for Wine.
