Uninstalling Wine


I have linux (a couple days ago), and installed wine. Wine seemed to be working fine, but would not install dcom95, so i uninstalled wine. It seems that the uninstallation process got cut short, and know typing wine "<with prog name here>" returns unkown comand. But, when i try to install it again it says the package is installed. If i try to uninstall it it says it is not installed. Any ideas on how to get it to work? Thanks!!!!

Sorry- I was a little unclear, I am using Fedora core 1, and was installing with .rpms

Did you stop Wine before you uninstalled it?

Have a look at:

http://www.winehq.com/docs/wine-user.html#INSTALLING

Since you did not indicate your distro, removal varies, but the link above covers removal for standard Linux flavors...

OK, the Red Hat instructions should do it for you...

This is what happens when i attempt to uninstall it that way:

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -qa|grep -i wine
wine-20040309-1fc1winehq
[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -e wine-20040309-1fc1winehq
error reading information on service wine: No such file or directory
error: %preun(wine-20040309-1fc1winehq) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
