Have you read the "Repositories" section?

@LinuxMinus you can add the repository URL to your package manager under YAST, make sure you get the one for the right version. Then install WINE using the package manager instead of terminal.

Installing WINE will be first step, Next will be setting up your game under WINE, if you manage to do that then you can run many more Microsoft applications in SUSE installing them the same way.

Good luck to you.

I ave and in all honest I'm having hard time understanding it all....
However I figured what I'm looking for should be somewhere here: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...:/Wine/SLE-11/

But really idk any further :/

You don't have to look manually inside that directory.
You need to add that repository URL to your package manager, as TroN-0074 said.
Once you do that, you'll find wine packages ready available through yum, zypper or yast.
If you don't even know what these are, please read some OpenSuse package management documentation.

I read this and it makes sense to me. BUT I have no idea how to proceed to follow any of the steps proposed by you.
Please remember this is my first day doing anything on Linux. Yast, package manager, terminal etc...this is all new to me :/

Ok I read it, so I understand a bit better how all of this works now.
So If I understand it right I have to add the URL of the wine package for my suse version to the yast install manager right?

If yes please tell me how to do that, if not then idk X.x

You should be installing Wine from the Yast system management utility. This is the easiest and most foolproof way to install it an make sure it works correctly. Wine is already in the OpenSuse repositories.

Bumpz

Ok when I go to the Yast Software manager and pick repositories there is the option Emulators: Wine:STABLE followed by a lin to the opensuse.org/repositories.

Listed packages are following:
prelink
wine-devel
wine-doors
wine12
wine12-devel

But when I try to install any of these I get a error msg saying something is missing.
I can post the error for any of them upon request, but first of all is this what you mean by installing it from the system management utility?

Thanks in advance

Your system administration utilities are right in your Suse menu. Have you actually looked at them? I fail to see how you can be using this system and not be familiar with this stuff. The help applet is also right there on your taskbar if this is a default installation. People here would like to help you, but you have to make some effort to learn the basics.

I can tell you right now, though, that this game will not work under Wine, and you'd be much better off setting up a Virtualbox VM and installing Windows XP or something there to run it with. You can run a VM full screen on another workspace and it's like having two computers at once.

It's my first day using Linux, and its the first / only thing I'm trying to do. Forgive me for being such a n00b but I am really trying hard here :s

Well from I understand this has been suggested before, but again I'd appreciate it if you could specify how to do this.

Thanks a lot.

In the software repositories you have an option to add then click on it and select Specify URL, then click on next. Put at name to help you remember what that repository is for, then paste the URL on the URL field. From there is just a matter of click next and follow the instructions.
Remember to refresh the sources after you are done with that

Then while you are still in YAST go to the software manager and on the search bar do a search for WINE once you find it tick the little box and click on the apply bottom and let it do its thing.

these steps will apply in OpenSuse with Gnome, if you have the KDE desktop environment YAST will look a little different but it will be the same idea. To find out what graphical interface you have you could open up a file browser windows and hit the help menu and look under the about option. If you have Nautilus then you are running Gnome, if you have Dolphin then you are running KDE.

To set up a virtualbox you need to have a multicore processor and a good amount of memory RAM 2GB or more.

Good luck to you!

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 (i586)
the NOT free 32 bit operating system
SELD 11 service pack 1
is not free you have to pay for it

32 bit os on a 64 bit laptop?????


and as such the documentation for it AND the FREE opensuse are a bit mixed up

OpenSUSE 11.4 is the ONLY still supported ( for the next 24 days ) in the 11 series
And OpenSUSE 12.1
yes this is a pain in the "bleep"
but Novel WANTS you to BUY it $$$ !!!

your best bet with SELD 11 is to contact your paid for support
( you did buy the REQUIRED support license ? right)
and have the tech support walk you through installing wine
-- BUT A WARNING --
the version is the suse repos is OLD
wine 1.5.8 builds and installed fine in OpenSUSE 12.1
( should install on the "LONG TERM LIFE support" SELD 11
