Problem still remaining I#m finished with my latin and don't know what to do I really need help

edit:

i downloaded the source code and tried to compile it like discribed in the HowTo, but the only thing i get is this:

Quote:
Terminal

[selos@localhost wine-20030813]$ ./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Warning: Old Wine RPM install detected. Do you want to remove it first?
(yes/no) yes
We need to remove the rpm as root, please enter your root password

Wow, this is quite the sad little bug, or so it would seem. I'd suggest hopping on their mailing list (if they have one) or submitting this as a possible bug. Sadly, in your situation, I can't think of further action you could take other than just saying "no" to "Do you want to remove it first?" or using the RPM method and forcing the new (old) one...

Cool

yes, i also thaught about saying no:

Quote:
[selos@localhost selos]$ cd downloaded/WinE/wine-20030813
[selos@localhost wine-20030813]$ ./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Warning: Old Wine RPM install detected. Do you want to remove it first?
(yes/no) no
Sorry, I won't install Wine when an rpm version is still installed.
(Wine support suffered from way too many conflicts between RPM
and source installs)
Have a nice day !
[selos@localhost wine-20030813]$
so i'm starting to hate WinE
