This is as far as I can understand the actual package... an additional problem which becomes evident here though is that I have a poor grip of what a package actually is...
is a bundle of ready-to-run code and administrative instructions on where to place components of the package, what the package depends on, etc.:
I use an earlier edition of Xandros on a desktop:
OS, ker|rel, machine: Linux, 2.6.18-dcc-smp, i686
Distribution : Xandros 4 Professional
and my edition has access to wine
, but also crossover
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Jeremy White <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libfreetype6, libc6 (>= 2.2), perl5-base, perl-modules ...
Conflicts: cxoffice2, xandros-cxoffice-patch-1.3.1-3, cxoffice ...
Description: Run Windows applications like MS Office in Linux
CrossOver Linux for Xandros makes it possible to use Windows applications
such as Microsoft Office, Quicken, and Lotus Notes on Linux.
It's possible that that may look like Greek, but it provides some details on a Windows emulator for Linux, specifically for Xandros.
What are you trying to do with wine?
Will crossover suffice?
Do you have crossover?
I don't use these emulators. When I need to use something specific to Windows, I use a Virtual Machine into which I have installed Windows ... cheers, makyo
