Bitcoin client versions 0.3.19 and 0.3.20.2 work fine on my Linux Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy).
But not so version 0.3.21:
When I use the executables of the package "bitcoin-0.3.21-linux.tar.gz", something strange happens:
A Wine program starter appears in the task bar for 10 or 20 seconds or so - and then it disappears again and nothing happens!
It just seems that I cannot start the executable in version 0.3.21, and I am surprised why the system seems to invoke a wine program starter in the first place... I am using the LINUX version, and NOT the WINDOWS version...
Any ideas or similar experiences?
PS: Attached two screenshots:
* The first screenshot shows the executables that are the files "bitcoin" and "bitcoind" that I took directly from the archive file of the "bin\32\" path and moved to my "~\.bitcoin\" directory. I also copied my wallet.dat there. Nothing more. Then I double clicked the file "bitcoin".
* Next screenshot shows the "Wine Windows Program Starter" that gets invoked after having clicked this. It disappeared again after 10 or 20 seconds or so, and nothing more happened.
PS2: I could not attach the screenshots, since the "upload folder is full"
