Anyone know how to make WINe work? I have the RPM on my desktop now. After trying to unpack it, "rpm -q wine" reports that it isn't installed. How do I install it correctly? There is so much I must learn about Linux, so bear with me.:no:

if you have the rpm on your desktop have you installed it? at a prompt cd to the location of the rpm and then install it with the following command:

rpm --install <somebinary.rpm>

That may be where I was going wrong. I wasn't going to any folder in peticular.

It still wasn't working. I tried going under the folder "/etc/wine/standard" and then trying to RPM it and it didn't do anything. By the way, I made the last two folders prior to trying this, as well as an opengl folder under wine as I had an OpenGL version and a normal version.

After trying the command line diferently, I think I got it in. However, it still does say with "rpm -q wine" that it isn't in. It may just be what I am looking at must not be recognized. I guess now we need to cross our fingers and try it.:pray:

wine is a pain the butt ... good luck.. I just run games that have been ported to Linux :winking: like Return to Castle Wolfenstein, SimCity 3k and UT 2003 :)

I play some games that aren't ported to Linux, like Half Life. I have also yet to find a Linux Unreal, though I know it exists. I also want to connect to my ISP from Linux (which currently offers only a Windows version of their software!). Beyond that, I think I can manage off of Linux native software. I also have been wanting to play with WINe. Also, I have WINe in, but I need to add, link, and tweak a few files to get it going. While we're here, what's the proper usage to make it work? Is it like "wine executeable"?

Knowing the commands may help me out some. What are they? I haven't found them in the docs yet, but I may not be looking hard enough.
