That has a lot of info on wine (it's incidentally the wine homepage too
Wine changes really quickly, so I'd try to rpm, emerge, apt-get, *insert whatever you use here* or make the newest sources or packages.
Every month wine has a new release and the differences can be quite spectacular.
i am a and want to run some windows games on red hat 9.0. I now know what wine is but don't know where i should begin. is there any free downloads that don't take a month. i would greatly appreciate an help.
here i'll lay it out easy for ya:: go here and download and install this specific rpm built for redhat 9....after that is done, you will have to setup a fake windows drive, and to do this the easiest way you can go get winetools which will set this up for you in your /home/USER/.wine directory ...
after that is done wine should be configured to be used....
I been doing some surfing of forums and have read that the only game I can use with wine is quake. is that tru . I would like to run , roller coaster tycoon, croc, ceasar II and comand and conquer. I dont have any money to buy a windows os. so if u can help i would be very happy . buy the way if i ran a duel boot ,windows and linux what would be the necessary crap i would need to run it.
just take this site for example that'll make a liar outta whomever said quake is the only game that runs in wine...
and although i don't play quake, but to my knowledge you dont' even need wine to play quake in linux..
if your using kde or gnome, then yes that is probably your problem, as they suck the hell out of your resources...and if that is the case, then judging on your box i would recommend a lightweight window manager such as Fluxbox, and of course shutdown any unneeded services, etc, etc...
? re-read my post
click in my post where it says ---> Fluxbox
i linked the site in my last thread...and when you do get there you'll notice on the top of the page where it says "Download" and you'll get the tarball for it...and i guess just get the latest stable verion
