5.1i Install - Linux/WINE - At the end of my installation, a message reports "Failed creating link: <link_name>"

Description

Keyword: Linux, WINE, 5.1i, install, failed, creating, link

When Disc 1 of 2 finishes installing, a series of error messages reports:

"Failed creating link: <link_name>".

Solution

These errors are reported because the PC-based installer is attempting to create desktop icons and links that are not compatible with a Linux desktop. These messages may be safely ignored.

You can avoid these messages by using an alternate method of invoking WINE: Use "wine --winver nt2000 setup.exe" to run the installation from the CD.
