On Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, x86_64, Intel Processor, NVidia graphics card:

I tried to install Halo: Combat Evolved in wine as per this page at Wine AppDB, but the installer hangs. Here is my bash session:

This is what the installer looks like when it hangs. The UI is responsive (i.e. the cancel button and the window decoration buttons "hover") until I click something. Then it becomes completely unresponsive.

The Halo setup program hangs here.

Is there any terminal output you could share so we might understand the problem better? Also, you'd be better off asking this on the Wine AppDB as that is the place where it'd do the most good for both you and others who might run into this. –  dinchamion Dec 25 '11 at 0:40
    
I've added the terminal output, and a screenshot of the installer where it hangs. –  Isaac Sutherland Dec 27 '11 at 19:13
