Hey all, back with another stupid question.
My wine won't work. When I
wine program.exe
I get the message:
wine config not found in current dir
starting in windows directory

And then i just get a message saying that the program
im running doesnt exist. I know for a fact that it exists,
and to check it i even use tab completion to make sure im
not making any type errors.

I also cant reinstall wine because the every version ive tried says
there is a conflicting wine version.

two questions:
1. How can I remove wine and reinstall it?
2. How can I configure wine once it's been installed i dont see any type of config program for it.

thnx in advance

Dude, have you done

man wine ?

Also try: locate wine |more

You will see a crapload of readme files already in your HD for perusal. I haven't used wine, but just doing those two things gave me a ton of info on it.

If you installed it using RPM, you can just

rpm -ev wine (as root)

We got a semi-successful Office2K under wine up last week. Only problem is that we can't get permissions to do save anything so even a file->open gives a permissions nag. I was able to install and config wine in about an hour or so just by perusing the man pages. Also the version I get came with a pretty little setup script - quite painless.
