well I've gotten the repos from winehq for my distribution which is debian 6.0 squeeze, installed, configured, version reports 1.1.42. which sounds work in 6.35 and not 7.17
I removed the installed wine versions, removed the source from my apt sources.list, downloaded wine 1.3.14 src and compiled it without a hitch, installed it, blew away my .wine, did a winecfg, re-installed mIRC, tried to play sounds and still no go, wine --version says 1.3.14... mIRC 6.35 will now only play midis (didn't try wavs cause i don't have any handy) and mp3s just says * /splay unable to play 'myfile' so I uninstalled 1.3.14 and reverted back to the stable builds from winehq's repositories for my distribution. Maybe i didn't have some proper flags compiling from source I dunno, I'll continue to tinker and see if I can come up with a solution. It's strange tho with the repository version, 6.35 works flawlessly, 7.17 doesn't even error, like it doesn't even attempt to play anything.
ok well i downloaded a simple wav file and my repo of 1.1.42 plays wavs just fine, just not mp3s or midis in 7.17, and doesn't even error about mp3s/midis. 6.35 plays them all.
