Wine 20040813 rpm and YaST


Hi all,

Recently I downloaded Suse 9.1 personal installed it on my laptop as the only OS and I did all the updates for it. Now I am a Windows XP user but I want to convert my work machine also to Linux so I use my laptop as my test baby. I must say I got everything working it's, on my windows network (Suse) and XP and Suse are talking to eachother like old friends. Now I am a web designer and I would really like to have DreamWeaver installed on Suse so I want to do this with wine so I downloaded this rpm for it and I single click the file and opens in konqueror asking me if I would like to install it with YaST so I do that. But then after it opens my YaST it asks me for CD 1 which I put in and it installs something. So when I open a terminal window and type in wine I see it is still the version that came with the CD/Download.

So here goes:

Do I have to restart my machine for it to work? (Am I that indoctrinated by Gates?)

Or is there something I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Xander Pascal

try this:
open up the folder where you have the RPM file. Pressing F4 on the keyboard, this should open up a console that is already in the directory the RPM is locared in.

You'll need to di this as root, so type "su" in the console. This will require your root password. Type that in. At your next prompt, type:
Code:
rpm -Uvh wine*.rpm
this will install the RPM with the options [U]pgrade, [v]erbose, and [h]ashmarks to display install progress.. After this is done, try to run wine again and check your version.. If this doesnt work, go back thru Yast and uninstall the Wine that came with Suse, then go back to your RPM and repeat the process listed above.

hope this helps,
-myk

For DreamWeaver you may have more success using CrossOver (www.codeweavers.com) than regular Wine. CrossOver is a commercial version of Wine with a nice installer and that is tweaked to run popular apps better and more reliably.

Thanks myk I am now trying the second option since the first gave me an error. And I also want to thank you for the tip on the console thing. Will keep you up to date on the progress...

Hi mhearn I want to use wine, thanks for the tip though, because I want to make it work this install is a minor set back and I have looked into the posibility also of VMWare but I want to get to a stage where I can contribute to the community as well. oh and I believe in Frank:

Thanks,

Instead Dreamweaver you can use Quanta or NVU.
http://quanta.sourceforge.net/
http://www.nvu.com/

Some people says that Quanta is the nearest program to Dreamweaver. I haven't test it... but maybe you want to.

Best regards.

It says:

warning: wine-20040813-SuseLinux91.scr.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 0175623e
1:wine ############################3 [100%]

user:/media/cdrom #

and if I go back to x terminal and type wine it says:

Wine 20040213

And all the rest of the stuff like usage and things.

Ta,

Xander

I see your problem.. You're installing the wrong RPM.. The ones that have .src in the filename are for source code ONLY!! You need to get the regular RPM. You have only upgraded your source code, but not the compiled working program
