|If set, the contents of this variable is taken as the name of the directory where Wine stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine). This directory is also used to identify the socket which is used to communicate with the wineserver. All wine processes using the same wineserver (i.e.: same user) share certain things like registry, shared memory, and config file. By setting WINEPREFIX to different values for different wine processes, it is possible to run a number of truly independent wine processes.|
|Specifies the path and name of the wineserver binary. If not set, Wine will try to load /usr/local/bin32/wineserver, and if this doesnt exist it will then look for a file named "wineserver" in the path and in a few other likely locations.|
|Specifies the path and name of the wine binary to use to launch new Windows processes. If not set, Wine will try to load /usr/local/bin32/wine, and if this doesnt exist it will then look for a file named "wine" in the path and in a few other likely locations.|
Turns debugging messages on or off. The syntax of the variable is
of the form
|Specifies the path(s) in which to search for builtin dlls and Winelib applications. This is a list of directories separated by ":". In addition to any directory specified in WINEDLLPATH, Wine will also look in /usr/local/lib32/wine.|
Defines the override type and load order of dlls used in the loading
process for any dll. There are currently two types of libraries that can be loaded
into a process address space: native windows dlls
(native) and Wine internal dlls (builtin). The type may be abbreviated with the first letter of the type
(n or b). The library may also be disabled (). Each sequence of orders must be separated by commas.
Each dll may have its own specific load order. The load order determines which version of the dll is attempted to be loaded into the address space. If the first fails, then the next is tried and so on. Multiple libraries with the same load order can be separated with commas. It is also possible to use specify different loadorders for different libraries by separating the entries by ";".
The load order for a 16-bit dll is always defined by the load order of the 32-bit dll that contains it (which can be identified by looking at the symbolic link of the 16-bit .dll.so file). For instance if ole32.dll is configured as builtin, storage.dll will be loaded as builtin too, since the 32-bit ole32.dll contains the 16-bit storage.dll.
Specifies the Windows architecture to support. It can be set either to
win32 (support only 32-bit applications), or to
win64 (support both 64-bit applications and 32-bit ones in WoW64 mode).
The architecture supported by a given Wine prefix is set at prefix creation time and cannot be changed afterwards. When running with an existing prefix, Wine will refuse to start if WINEARCH doesnt match the prefix architecture.
|Specifies the X11 display to use.|
OSS sound driver configuration variables:
|Set the device for audio input / output. Default /dev/dsp.|
|Set the device for mixer controls. Default /dev/mixer.|
|Set the MIDI (sequencer) device. Default /dev/sequencer.|
/usr/local/bin32/wine The Wine program loader. /usr/local/bin32/wineconsole The Wine program loader for CUI (console) applications. /usr/local/bin32/wineserver The Wine server /usr/local/bin32/winedbg The Wine debugger /usr/local/lib32/wine Directory containing Wine shared libraries $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices Directory containing the DOS device mappings. Each file in that directory is a symlink to the Unix device file implementing a given device. For instance, if COM1 is mapped to /dev/ttyS0 youd have a symlink of the form $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/com1 -> /dev/ttyS0.
DOS drives are also specified with symlinks; for instance if drive D: corresponds to the CDROM mounted at /mnt/cdrom, youd have a symlink $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/d: -> /mnt/cdrom. The Unix device corresponding to a DOS drive can be specified the same way, except with :: instead of :. So for the previous example, if the CDROM device is mounted from /dev/hdc, the corresponding symlink would be $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/d:: -> /dev/hdc.
