Question Can't find wineinstall on Redhat 7.2

I recently installed Redhat 7.2.

Unfortunately, I have 2 windows programs which I must still use. I don't want to reboot a few times a day.

So I have tried to install wine-20010131-3.i386.rpm and wine-20020106-1.i386.rpm. In each case, I can't find a wineinstall program.

I try rpm -ql ...|grep -i wineins with no success.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I have no idea who gave you that command or what it does, but why don't you just simply try:
rpm -i wineblatiblabla.rpm,
if it whines about dependency's,fulfill them or:
rpm -i --nodeps wineblatiblabla.rpm,
if it says an older package is already installed:
rpm -i --oldpackage wineblatiblabla.rpm
and you can always:
rpm --upgrade --force wineblatiblabla.rpm....
this should work for you.
always run a sync after installing new packages,
and if WINE succesfully installed you also need to:
mkdir ~/.wine.
do this once as every user.
