On 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux kernel 184.108.40.206.36) I'm trying to install the WinBUGS Markov Chain Monte Carlo software with Wine 1.6, but after
I get the following error message:
modify_ldt: Invalid argument modify_ldt: Invalid argument modify_ldt: Invalid argument modify_ldt: Invalid argument modify_ldt: Invalid argument err:module:attach_process_dlls "krnl386.exe16" failed to initialize, aborting err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winevdm.exe" failed, status c0000005
There seems to be some discussion of the problem here—something to do with incompatability between certain kernel versions & certain Wine versions for 16-bit applications.
What options do I have? If there's a way to install an older version of Wine on Ubuntu 14.04 it would suit me fine, as I remember WinBUGS running with Wine 1.4, & I don't use Wine for running anything else.
(I already use the alternative MCMC software, JAGS, but I'll be needing WinBUGS for a course.)
