Well, as far as I have understood your problem is that u r unable to install a package from rpm (be it any*) . So, what I can simply suggest out of it is:

> open a terminal
> su (login as root)
> cd Desktop/ ( or wherever you have saved the rpm)
> rpm -ivh ( read the man page (man rpm) if you want to gather more info )

type this command as root

# rpm -ivh wine-20031212.i686.rpm (or whatever version you are running

You should also install the wine-devel package. Download it from the wine page.

Ac97 soundcard is autodetected in core 2.If you get problems with sound,try installing the drivers again.You can find them in your chipset disk.Or else downloaded the latest drivers from the AvanceLogic website or check whether your ALSA version the latest one(Advanced Linux Sound Architecture).
You can download the source code from
To install drivers,follow the procedures given below:
Step 1. unzip source code
tar xfvj alcsound.tar.bz2

Step 2. Turn on sound support (soundcore module, default turn on)

Step 3. Complied source code
a. ./configure
b. make
c. make install
d. ./snddevices

Step 4. Edit your /etc/modules.conf or conf.modules

Step 5. reboot your machine

Note: 1. The most detail information, can refer the alsa-kernel/Documenttation/ALSA-Configuration.txt
in the alcsound.tar.bz2.
2. Kernel Version must be 2.2.14 or later.
3. All mixer channels are muted by default. You must use a native
or OSS mixer program to unmute appropriate channels.
4. If can not compile the source code, try to rename the /usr/src/linux-2.x -> /usr/src/linux.
5. The driver added to support the SPDIF functoin.
6. Suggest use alsamixer to control mixer function. you can find it in the alsa-utils-0.9.4 (
