wine 1.2 upgrade?
I was asked to upgrade to wine 1.2 but it doesn't seem to be in the cetos/epel repos, they only have 1.0.1 versions.
ANy ideas on where I can get this from?
Also, do I need to copy the old .wine folder and copy it back after or do I need to rinatll Windows software from it after the upgrade?
You can download the latest sources from http://www.winehq.org
Uninstall your existing packages (RPMs?) and build the new copy from source. It takes a while, so bring a magazine or something . . . hehe
After the new binaries are installed, they will automatically update your .wine folders on the first run. There's no need to mess with your .wine folders.
The download is called wine-1.2.tar.bz2 . . . move it into /usr/src
Then, execute the following commands as root:
Doesn't yum uninstall wine remove the folders and therefore the installed windows software?
Also, I have the source oage here but there are at least 10 or more 1.2 versions?

You can back up your ~/.wine/drive_c (or is it c_drive?) directory if you're worried about losing your Windows programs.
