If you are using the rpm's that shipped with redhat 8, I would uninstall them first, then install wine from source. To get rid of wine:
rpm -e wine-devel
rpm -e wine
Now follow these instructions:
Install Wine from source
Before you install Wine make sure there is no previous Wine installation on your system.
Many Linux distributions come with a Wine package, but this is usually a very old and sometimes broken version, so it is better to uninstall the old version and install a newer one.
You can download the latest WINE version here:
Extract the downloaded file: tar zxvf Wine-20030219.tar.gz
This will create a new directory, enter this directory.
Now type ./tools/wineinstall
Wine will now be installed
The configuration of WINE
in order to run Wine needs some files and directories.
First you must create a virtual ('fake') windows drive
The following directories mut exist in your $HOME directory:
.wine/c_drive/Program Files/Common Files
After this copy the following files from wine-20030219/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine/Windows:
system.ini and win.ini
All applications will be installed on this fake Windows drive.
Wine also needs a configuration file. Copy the file config from wine-20030219/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine.
The Wine configuration file
The config file is pretty self explanatory, just take a look at it. The only thing you probably have to change is the mountpoint of the cdrom drive.
You can get more information by typing man wine.conf
Wine should work for you now. If you have any other questions, checkout http://frankscorner.org/.
