Hello, I'm just starting to learn Linux for the first time, and I have downloaded and installed Fedora cleanly and everything seems to be running smoothly. However, I wanted to run a few applications from Windows while in Linux, so I downloaded WineX to test out. However when I attempt to install the WineX RPM I received from the site, it comes up with an error message saying that WineX cannot be installed because there is no occurence of Wine on my computer and that this is needed for it to be installed.
I thought this was a fairly easy thing to fix, so I downloaded the newest release of Wine from winehq.org and attempted to install it, but when I do so, it tells me that there is a later version of wine already present on the system.
I thought that perhaps I had goofed somewhere on the install, so I attempted to remove the package for Wine through the rpm -e command. When I do so, it tells me that the package does not exist.
As you might imagine, this whole problem has me quite befuddled. I was hoping some of you with experience in using Wine or WineX might be able to help me(especially if you've been able to get it running in Fedora, if so, I could really use some advice)
Thank you in advance for any ideas and help you all might have.

When removing a package using rpm -e, omit the .rpm at the end of the package name.
