Where is WINE program located after YUM installation?


I've downloaded & installed WINE via YUM, as root, but can't seem to find the file afterward? Where can it possibly be located? I'm using regular user account now. Or must I be root to find it?

Thank you.

Thank you.
Try using the whereis command. On my system I get the following output: /usr/bin/wine /usr/lib/wine /usr/share/wine. The highlighted is the wine execuatble.

Assuming you are still using F9, you would be better off just installing it from the F9 repos. If you installed it that way it will be within the standard path.
