[oz at fx oz]$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/wine/HyperCanvas.dll
-rwxrwxrwx  1 root root 6103117 Jul 15  2002
[oz at fx oz]$

I downloaded as suggested. A breath of Optimism here...Crytal won't run
as user, but it runs as root!  

So, I ran Hyper Canvas as root...getting ready to fall off my chair
again...and it reported back something I've seen from it when running
the other wine version...

[root at fx oz]# jack_fst /usr/local/lib/wine/HyperCanvas.dll
Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
Could not stat /cdrom (No such file or directory), ignoring drive D:
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("winedbg --debugmsg -all

err:seh:EXC_DefaultHandling Unhandled exception code c0000029 flags 1

Now, it the point where I show the "greater than" sign, it pops up a
graphical registry error box;

"Edirol Hyper Canvas
Can not open registry.

As I say, I have seen this box before...and I think with the same
numbers in it. So, I think, Jack_fst is talking to HyperCanvas but there
is something in the HyperCanvas dll that is not well. I think I'm
running version 1.01 but I'm not sure...

"top" shows no wine processes running.

Yes. I run 2.6.7 with lsm, etc. I run realcap allcaps=1 any=1 gid=29 
I add group 29 to my user account and it allows me to run the RT stuff
as a user. 

Now seeing as Crystal would not run as user but did as root, there is
something in this too?
