My network installation is standard SolydX from 2013 and it seems to be using /etc/network/interfaces.
Code: Select all
sudo ls -l /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp
I have read the liquidweb page (I try to "startpage" before asking here
) and checked that nscd is not installed. "sudo service dns-clean restart" looked strange to me - Shouldn't it use systemctl? Anyway: this

is the confirmation I was looking for. Thank you.

The server is actually answering but with various error codes. As I said, support tells me to flush an obviously non existent Windows DNS cache.
Finding the right dll and overrides to use is what I'm actually struggling with. There are so many possibilities to mess things up. I'm guessing the problem is with wininet.dll and winhttp.dll. Downloading those through POL fails. I might try winetricks instead but people report download problems there too. Other forum threads say I don't need any overrides at all anymore but a new install without failed too. They change server configs about every 3 month and keep technical details secret, so the wine community has to guess around ever so often.
It's a game of course - to what length you go for your vices ...
But I know nobody here is really much into wine so never mind.
Edit: @kurotsugi: Wine works, even the game works - just the updater doesn't. Which is annoying because I have to provide a MSWin install just for that purpose.
