I have no experience with Wine, so I can't help you there, but your removal command was wrong. When uninstalling, it's like this: rpm -e "package name" instead of putting the -e
at the end. Almost ALL UNIX commands require the option right after the command name
and THEN the file or package that you are playing with.
