Wine will not install in Mandrake 10.1
Hi, I am having a problem installing Wine in Mandrake 10.1 CE. Here is what I have tried:

1. Tried to install from the terminal using "urpmi wine" - urpmi replied "already installed"

2. Then tried using the software management section of the Mandrake Control Center but received the error message "sorry the following package cannot be selected"

Otherwise both urpmi and the Mandrake control center are working fine, and I know for a fact that Wine (or any of its conponents) are not installed.

I am baffled :(

Any ideas?

As root

rpm -qa | grep wine

exactly as I typed above.

Hi opjose, tried that and it seems that WIne is definately not installed.

Ok then instead of urpmi, go to the directory on the CD roms containing the Wine packages and

rpm -Uvh wine*.*.rpm libwine*.*.rpm
