Wine


I would like to use wine on my redhat 8 installation. I have win2000 on another hard drive and do not want to risk it. CAn anyone give me clear, easy to follow, precise, idiot-proof, newbie instructions on how to install wine? the ones on the wine site seem complicated. maybe im just out of it. thanks!

RedHat 8.0 has wine on the CDs. You can just install the rpm's from there. Use the package manager: SystemSettings->Packages

You probably alreday have it installed. Go to System Settings->Services and scroll down and see if wine is checked off. If it is then it means that wine is running.

How do you run it? It runs when you click on a Windows application like setup.exe and just a heads up it often does not work. There are a lot of things that need to be done to wine. There are many threads in this forum where people are expressing there disgust with wine.

To install a Windows app it should be wine someWindows.exe. I don't recall the place where the installed .ee is placed but ater it's installed it's wine /wherever/the/hell/wine-c/Program Files/someWindows.exe
I tried installing KazaaLite using Wine. I gave up in disgust and resigned myself to dual booting.

im no expert with wine but you need to set it up even though its installed. do you have wine in your kde/gnome menu? if so try runing that and wine will guide you through the steps to setting it up. you can either have it use your existing windows partition or it will create a fake windows partition on your *nix drive.

after its set up you can try installing a certain windows app by opening the command line and run:

wine yourprogramhere.exe

just put "wine" before the command to install but remember it works, but needs tinkering.

as someone posted, frankscorner.org helped me install kazaa lite and nero on linux a few months back. HTH

SD

wine help here
