RPMs, i neeed help installing them.


Hi every one i am totaly new to linux and i am having a very frustrating time installing wine tools. i have suse 10.0. So i go to the wine tools website to download the rpm file. It saves to my home folder. Then i go to the terminal and type rpm -Uvh winetools-0.9-*.rpm, like it says to in the instructions. when i do that it says something like, dependancys, and it need some thing else to instal. If some one could please help me out i would greatly appreciate it.

Then, you need to install some other dependents as well. I'm not sure about the exact package for Suse distro, but for Fedora there are wine, wine-core, wine-cms, wine-capi, and so on (total 10 rpms or something like that). So, I guess you may need to do the same for Suse rpms. Even if you had all the right rpms on your hand, you may also need another program that wine may require. So just go get the rpm packages that the dependency instruction says and install them before you install wine.

Good luck

That sounds odd to me, winetools is not an original package of wine. It's an additional tool for wine that allows you to install some primary MS appllications, such as IE and runtime dlls, on linux. Anyway, go to http://www.von-thadden.de/Joachim/WineTools/ and try to install it. If the dependency instruction says so, it will resolve your problem.

You might also look into installing yum as it will do a dependency check and install all dependencies for a software package.

Yes, Wine is the actual program while wine-tools is a graphical front end to wine.

You can save rpm files wherever you want and can remove them after success installation. Try the exact file name, including the extension - .rpm

Alternatively, yum might be the easiest way for you to install all dependency package. Try to search how to use yum. If you 'yum install wine', it will check all dependency and automatically download all the necessary package for you.

And, you mentioned earlier that the error message shows that you need 'winetools-0.9-3jo'. Is that right? If so, note that wine-tool and winetools are different. The wine-tool is a part of wine package while winetools is not. For winetools, go to the url I gave you in the previous reply up on this page.
