Wine in PCLinux OS
Has anyone successfully installed Wine in PCL?
I have two systems on the same OS. In one system, after selecting the Wine package for install and a 45 MB download, I get an error that the RPM database is not accessible. After learning online that a restart rectifies this problem, I found that post-restart the Wine package is displayed as not installed in the rpm manager. When I reselect Wine for install, the download size becomes 150 MB, and now includes irrelevant apps like Adobe Reader. Post download and installation, I do get the Wine in the programs menu, but launching it restarts X - no errors, or splash screen displayed.
So I thought of installing Wine in the other system. So far it has followed the same route. After the RPM database not accessible error, I am not keen to sit through another 150 MB download.
I would like to know the location where the downloaded packages are stored locally ( I have set the rpm manager to save downloaded packages).
I would like to know how to remove the remnants of an installation, when the program does not appear in the rpm manager.
Any help on installing Wine in PC L is also welcome.
