Compile WINE. It is less troublesome than dealing with RPM files. If you must, use kpackage to install it. Make sure you uninstall WINE first.

Please do not complain if you have depencies issues when dealing with RPM files.

1) switch to root
2) urpmi wine

Technically that's wine 20040813, but that's the one that came with 10.1 community edition.

Configuring it? That's what I'm about to try....

Good luck,

Jeff

PS - compiling it doesn't work - Mandrake 10.1 uses X.org instaead of XFree. Wine assumes you will be using XFree. Haven't figure that one out, yet.

Slackware 10 uses X.org too. All you need is to install the devel x11 packages and other devel packages. I did and I have compiled Video Lan Client and MPlayer. No offense but I can prove you wrong that WINE can be compiled with X.org.

Offense? I'd be delighted to know how you did it! What x packages did you install? I have the following packages avialable via urpm:

dbus-x11
libSDL_gfx11
libgtk+-x11-2.0_0
libxorg-x11
ncbi-tools-x11
xorg-x11
xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts
xorg-x11-Xnest
xorg-x11-Xvfb
xorg-x11-cyrillic-fonts
xorg-x11-glide-module
xorg-x11-server
xorg-x11-xfs

No devel as far as I can see...

Thanks,

Jeff

The devel packages are also called header or source. You can go into Mandrake's Control Center and go into either install packages or remove packages and make sure display advance information is on. You may have to right click on the information box to do this. From the RPM file that you selected you should see a list of files it will copy or install into your computer. Find files that end with .h (also known as headers). The X.org or XFree86 header files are usually in /usr/X11/include or /usr/X11R6/include. In some distributions one is link to the other one.

I like to install a program to test the installation to find out if the proper packages or files are installed. I use MPlayer because it does not need depend on a lot of files and it is a very reliable program to compile with any gcc 3.x. All I do is run ./configure under MPlayer directory and if it complains on a certain package that it needs. Just install what it needs. You will need to uninstall MPlayer if you have it installed from an RPM file. I suggest you do not have any additional sites that the Mandrake installer have to search for because it can be confusing. I suggest only the packages from the disc for now, so uncheck the sources that are not from the discs in the source manager. By compiling MPlayer, WINE should then install with out any problems. If you have an nVidia or an ATI card, you may want to install it first for WINE to include it during compiling.

I whole heartedly agree with this. Installing from source is much easier in the long run, especially if you have a dual boot situation. To install on Mandrake 10.1 Community Edition, you have to first install the libxorg-x11-devel package and all dependencies. Sadly, these don't come on the CDs.

So....first you need to get yoru update media set up. I am using :
URL: ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...586/media/main
relative path to hdlist: media_info/hdlist.cz

All this is done in the Mandrake Control Center (see post above). Now you should be able to download and install the packages - they are big, though, so plan for big bandwidth or a long download.

Once that;s done, get the latest wine sources, untar somehwere and run the tools/wineinstall script and follow the directions.

Enjoy and thanks to Electro to pointing me to the xorg devel stuff.

Jeff
