Confused: WineHQ download packs


I want to try out some of my favourite Win32 apps under Linux and read somewhere that Wine is the very tool to run them in Linux environment.

I'm trying openSUSE 11.1 as it seems to be the most up-to-date and complete Linux distro. I was redirected to http://en.opensuse.org/Wine#Repositories from WineHQ downloads section followed by http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/ but there seems to be a lot of files there contrary to what I expected (a single executable or installer). Now, I'm confused as to which files/packs to use?!?

Any help is much apperciated!

Rustam

You just want the basic Wine package from the repository.
