It is generally better to install (with YUM) a package prebuilt for Centos rather than start from any generic source or build from the original project (such as wine).

I'm not sure this info is still current. But last I checked, you needed to enable the Extras repository before installing Wine with YUM.

See
http://centos.karan.org/
for enabling the Extras repository (Fedora Extras rebuilt for Centos), then as root type
yum install wine

Talking

Hi all,

Finally, after some settings from some files from CentOS, I made the impossible, and I install wine on CentOS 5.4 64 biti. In this moment I cannot tell you exactly the steps which I follow to install it, but it works good.

Yours advice it was very useful for me.

Thanks to all.

When I installed VMware and I made the same thing on CentOS, I will posted here all steps necessary to install wine, and much more, first steps in CentOS, before begin installation of other software.

Best regards.

You need to know how to enable the repository epel in Centos (which isn't trivial)? I don't have instructions handy but they've been posted several times at LQ.

Or you just need to know how to install wine after enabling epel (which is almost too trivial to explain)?

Some Applications can, and some can not be run on Linux/Wine. It depends on code replicated in Wine.

There is also "winetrics" script that can download and install VB/VS runtime code you will be needing.

To list what you can install run
Code:
yum list win*
and to install run
Code:
yum install wine
. You can also install seveeral packages at once with something like:
Code:
yum install wine wine-desktop wine-tools
Wine in EPEL is version 1.0.x, but there is also version 1.1.34 from "mharris" repository, and you can also use something like PlayOnLinux to create install scripts for your application.

Visit www.winehq.org for more info..
