gameranger on wine: Unhandled page fault on read access

Post by kest » Wed Dec 26, 2018 8:26 am

Hello, and merry Christmas! This is my first post to this forum, greetings from Lithuania. :)
While installing Game ranger (popular VPN tunneling tool for games) gives error:

Code: Select all

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address 0x459873 (thread 002a), starting debugger...

Full output here: https://pastebin.com/MDSdnQX5
From Backtrace it seems that fault appears in Gameranger program code, not in library?
I am thinking maybe it would be useful to get information where EAX register gets 0?
Any ideas? comments?

If somebody finds that useful:
Problem is solved after I installed wine-stable 3.0.4-1 from AUR, official arch linux repository only contain wine 4.0rc3-1. While installing from AUR repository I compiled wine from source so compile flags is different than version in main repository (if that could be cause of problem).

p.s. I don't know how to mark this thread solved.

Is it really resolved though? There still is a problem, you're just using an old version to not run into it. Is there a free download for this program?

GameRanger is a free program you can download it here https://www.gameranger.com/
Although using wine-stable GameRanger launches, but crashes after it should launch the game. Game alone (Lord of the rings: BoME 2) works well.

Thanks. It indeed crashes when running 4.0-rc3, but I don't see a bug here. The program is getting the wine version, and then messing up because "-rc3" is unexpected. It will work again when 4.0 is released...

Thanks for the explanation, is it possible to change that "version id" temporally without recompilation of Wine from source? where that "id" is stored?

Can't change it without recompiling, I'm afraid. It's compiled in.

(Or a hex editor if you're feeling adventurous, perhaps.)

The option to hide the wine version in staging seems to prevent the crash but I didn't know how to test further in case it has a reason it's detecting wine.
