Linux doesn't run "exe" files natively. That's a windows program and Linus is NOT windows. If you have to use it, you're probably better off using windows, although you can try running the software via wine, no promises at all that it will work.

mono is the Linux project to implement .net standards on Linux, so you might also want to look into that. Ultimately though, it looks like you're not clear on what Linux actually IS.

Angry

thanks for your relpy,

I have tried to install wine in fact im still trying to install that as we speak, ive tried all sorts of commands ie ./wine install.... install wine etc but to no avail. Im not sure what im doing wrong, Im logged in as root while making these commands but yeah its just not working, what am i doing wrong, i went to the wine website and downloaded wine but it doesnt show up on my downloads not sure what else i should be doing. like i said im new to this and not sure how it all works yet, the only reason why im using this OS is because I was told i cannot use cpanel without it. But before i even get to start on cpanel etc i have to install software and i dont even know how to do that, then i have to unzip it and im still trying to learn those commands install those programs etc. I am the definition of a NEWBIE. I know Ive got a lot to learn but if anyone out there is willing to teach me I would be so thankful. Otherwise Ill just have to keep hunting through all these forums to find my answer to my queries, so time consumeing when all i want to do is install 2 software packages and unzip them and then get myself up and running if you know what I mean. Once again thanking you in advance for your time.

wine can be installed as any other package, so do not download it, but run your package management software (on debian: synaptic package manager).

on CentOS try "yum install wine", but if the *very* first thing you're trying to do with Linux is make it NOT be Linux... ??

It looks like wine is mostly in EPEL, so run this first:

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...6-7.noarch.rpm

to add the EPEL software repository to your system.

As already discussed, always install SW with the package manager if at all possible.

You might also be interested in Crossover---this is a commercial (paid) version of WINE, and includes a user-friendly interface and various levels of support.

Dont loggin as root, its a bad idea, and unneeded in 99%+ of cases.

If you want to get help, its always best to tell us what OS and version you are using (no, 'linux', isnt an OS). Eg, 'I'm using debian squeeze 6.0.5'.

No, you dont need linux bnased OSes to use cpanel.

Quote:
A version of cPanel for Microsoft Windows exists, titled Enkompass
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPanel

http://enkompass.cpanel.net/

I dont know why you would need to install .net to 'get started on cpanel', unless whatever directions you are trying to follow are for cpanel in a windows OS......

the correct link is:
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm
I do not know if it works, but you copied something else....
