wineserver - the Wine server


wineserver [options]


wineserver is a daemon process that provides to Wine roughly the same services that the
Windows kernel provides on Windows.

wineserver is normally launched automatically when starting wine(1), so you shouldn't have
to worry about it. In some cases however, it can be useful to start wineserver explicitly
with different options, as explained below.


-d[n], --debug[=n]
Set the debug level to n. 0 means no debugging information, 1 is the normal level,
and 2 is for extra verbose debugging. If n is not specified, the default is 1. The
debug output will be sent to stderr. wine(1) will automatically enable normal level
debugging when starting wineserver if the +server option is set in the WINEDEBUG

-f, --foreground
Make the server remain in the foreground for easier debugging, for instance when
running it under a debugger.

-h, --help
Display a help message.

-k[n], --kill[=n]
Kill the currently running wineserver, optionally by sending signal n. If no signal
is specified, sends a SIGINT first and then a SIGKILL. The instance of wineserver
that is killed is selected based on the WINEPREFIX environment variable.

-p[n], --persistent[=n]
Specify the wineserver persistence delay, i.e. the amount of time that the server
will keep running when all client processes have terminated. This avoids the cost
of shutting down and starting again when programs are launched in quick succession.
The timeout n is in seconds, the default value is 3 seconds. If n is not specified,
the server stays around forever.

-v, --version
Display version information and exit.

-w, --wait
Wait until the currently running wineserver terminates.


If set, the content of this variable is taken as the name of the directory where
wineserver stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine). All wine processes using
the same wineserver (i.e.: same user) share certain things like registry, shared
memory and kernel objects. By setting WINEPREFIX to different values for different
Wine processes, it is possible to run a number of truly independent Wine sessions.

Specifies the path and name of the wineserver binary that will be launched
automatically by wine. If not set, wine will try to load /usr/bin/wineserver, and
if this doesn't exist it will then look for a file named wineserver in the path and
in a few other likely locations.
