I've been trying to install GOG's release of Gabriel Knight 3 using the preset script provided with Play On Linux. However, the installation fails to progress.

The first time I tried the install, it took several minutes to download version 1.6.2 of WINE, then the install would remain on the "Please wait while virtual drive is created" message until I manually interrupted the install process. I had tried waiting for over 5-10 minutes with no results.

Subsequent attempts have yielded similar results, except of course that WINE no longer has to install. Any help appreciated. I can provide error logs for troubleshooting if someone can tell me where to find them; I'm a bit of a newcomer to Linux.

If the script continues to not work, you can always do a manual installation of it.

This way you can download a newer version of Wine with the Wine Manager and then download and install the game yourself.

I prefer this method becaues sometimes the scripts are not updated and something changed with the game installer or URL
