Assuming you installed properly... you need to make a configuration file for it. There is a sample in the 'samples' directory. Modify it for your needs with the help of 'man wine.conf'. It will go in the [your home]/.wine/config . See this:

After you install wine, somewhere in your menu there will be a new option (Emulators), go to that, go to Wine, then go to Wine Setup, that is a little wizzard that will config ur config file for you very easily, with easy options, like what file system you want (win 3.1, 95 or 98), etc, then when you are done doing that, your fake_windows should be located under
[Your home]/.wine/fake_windows.

To install a program/game with wine, put the program/game in your cd-rom drive, open your home or w/e and go to /mnt/cdrom, the setup for the game/program should look like a wine cup, double click it and the setup will start just like it would on windows.. to run the program go to
[your home]/.wine/fake_windows/(application's folder)/(application.exe). Wine will open the program just like it would open in windows, usualy a terminal window will open as well, if you close the terminal, the program closes as well.

If you have any more problems, post back .

I gave you almost exact instructions above

Download the src.tar, ./configure, make then make install, you might wanna read the manuals it comes with as well, they have valuable information onto how to install. Wine is the easiest program I have installed on Linux, and I have only been using it for 4 days.

ok so i did all that...and at the end of the "make install" i got this

./tools/mkinstalldirs -m 755 /usr/local/share/aclocal
mkdir -m 755 -p -- /usr/local/share/aclocal
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./aclocal.m4 /usr/local/share/aclocal/wine.m4
/sbin/ldconfig
*************************************************
*************************************************
The installed Wine libraries will not be found!
You can either:
Add the line '/usr/local/lib' to /etc/ld.so.conf and run /sbin/ldconfig
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
*************************************************
*************************************************
what does this mean and how do i fix it?
once i fix that it should work correct?

ok so i did that and i think i did it right...cause i can go to /usr/locla/bin and run "./wine" and i get this

[root@localhost bin]# ./wine
Wine 20040309

Usage: wine [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments (of the program)

Options:
--debugmsg name Turn debugging-messages on or off
--dll name This option is no longer supported
--help,-h Show this help message
--version,-v Display the Wine version
[root@localhost bin]#


does that mean its working right?? and is all installed correctly and ready 2 use? if not what more do i need to do? thanks a bunch for all this help guys..i am learning tons..

Wine isnt realy a program, its kinda like a thing that is there...you dont run wine realy, Is there a game you wanna install? or a program? Just put to game/program in ur cdrom drive, open the cdrom drive up and look for its setup.exe, the icon should be a wine glass, run that and itll install just like it would on windows.

But befor you do that, you need to go to your menu, and look around for an emulators section somewhere, then in that there will be wine, and in wine run the wine setup to make the fake windows folder. then you are done.

Try to go to



If it doesent exist do this...which I have aklready said..

Download the rpm file, then open a terminal in the folder of the rpm file, and type this

rpm -i [rpm file's name here]

That will install wine, I dont think you will see anything happen, itll just not let you be able to type anything for a minute or so, after that is done, the emulators section might be in ur menu, if not, try to go to [your home]/[you]/.wine again.

WIne is the easiest program to install on Linux...if you are having trouble with this, who knows what kinda probs you are going to have with other programs.

ok so i installed now from the RPM like i was told...still no "emulators" section..found this tho n did it and came up with this...

[root@localhost bin]# ./winecfg
Drive A: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive C: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive D: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive E: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive F: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
Drive Z: unknown filesystem type L"win98", defaulting to 'win95'.
fixme:winecfg:WinMain The winecfg tool is not yet complete, and does not actually alter your configuration.
fixme:winecfg:WinMain If you want to alter the way Wine works, look in the ~/.wine/config file for more information.

what the hell does that mean....nothing will run on windows 95...i need it to be atleast win98 so i can make it all work...how do i change this...and where is the way to accually alter the configureation....
