how to install an earlier version of wine?

I have recently upgraded my pc to opensuse 12.1 64-bit from version 11.3. In 11.3, I had several windows applications that ran very well using wine. After the opensuse update to 12.1 I had to install wine using yast. Now the windows applications do not run. Uninstall/reinstall does not help. There is only an error message that the windows program ran into a serious problem and had to stop. I downloaded wine version 1.2 source code and would like to know if I can remove the current version of wine in yast and then compile and install the older source file is a recommended method of using an earlier version of wine.

Yes, you can do it this way. Keeping on track though, have you tried running it from the command line to see if any errors or warnings were being generated to STDERR?

I have seen a friend of mine doing this (he had the same problem that some programs worked well on some version of wine, but didn't on other versions).

Although he was using Ubuntu, his solution is not restricted to it.

All he did was to keep a collection of Wine packages, so when he needed another version of Wine, he uninstall the current and installs the other package. (may need to adapt when you need two versions at the same time, though)

Find the version of Wine you need, get a package for it (compiling yourself or otherwise), uninstall Wine and install from your package.

would like to know if I can remove the current version of wine in yast and then compile and install the older source file is a recommended method of using an earlier version of wine.
Yes, I think it's good.

The orbiter dialog box works fine. When I try to check 'always enumerate devices' it freezes and the wine error box pops up. If I do not check the box, then it will load a scenario, but the screen will be black. I can exit out ok.
amd 3000+ processor
2 gig ram
opensuse 12.1 64 bit os
nvidia geforce 6200 turbo cache video card

If I can not debug it, then I will try to roll back the wine version. Can I edit the orbiter configuration file?

I used the nvidia 1-click driver install on the opensuse 12.1 box and orbiter runs. Other windows programs run but not well enough to be useful. I checked wine version on an opensuse 11.3 box and it is version 1.2 and runs the same programs with no problem, so I will roll back to wine ver. 1.2 on the suse 12.1 box.
