i have already installed wine-20030408-1rh8winehq.i386.rpm but unknowingly i
have deleted some files accoscited to wine.so i wanted to reinstall the same
package.so i have tried uninstalling the package.i did

#rpm -e wine-20030408-1rh8winehq.i386.rpm

it says

error: package wine-20030408-1rh8winehq.i386.rpm is not installed

but when i try reinstalling the same package it says

#rpm -i wine-20030408-1rh8winehq.i386.rpm

When you uninstall an rpm you don't use the .rpm extension in the command. Try this.

rpm -e my_package (without the .rpm extenstion)

Try it with just the name which is wine not with all the versions so it should be:

#rpm -e wine

to get the exact name, try "rpm -qa | grep wine". it might seem a little confusing but hopefully you can understand why this is the case.

im having the same problem, i accidentally deleted some wine files and when i try to uninstall it wont let me so i tried deleting all the wine files on my comp to hopefully remove it but there is a registry somewhere telling my system (red hat 9) that wine is still installed, i guess like praveen i need to know how to tell my system wine is dead and gone so i can reinstall it, any ideas?
