Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
