Someone sugested that I download linspire 5.0 as a good alternative to windows. so far I like it. I was wondering which version of wine I should run on it. at winehq.com there were downloads for several distributions but not one for linspire. A page on Linspire's site said that wine is compatible but they wern't nice enought to suggest which download to choose. Any ideas?
nope, I may be a newbie but I still want to run free software. I didn't buy the click and run. I know, I am using a product that is charged for, but I was given a coupon for it and I thought it might make a good introduction to linux.
OK I bought the Damn CNR just so I could give Wine a try and It's not installing right. When I CRN WINE it tells me that winesetuptk. So OK I uninstall Wine but and CRN winesetuptk and still get nothing. How can I install a good working version on wine the old fasion way?
