Steps to install Wine for beginners ?

Post by ingcartun » 2010/04/08 16:25:37

Good afternoon,

I'm beginner in usage of CentOS 5.4, and beside of this I installed on 64biti.
First of all I update yum:
>yum update
and everything works fine and is installed OK.

Second step it was to install wine:
>yum wine install.

Begin of this moment appear my problem, because how I search on INTERNET, installation of wine on 64biti .rpm is very difficult to understand to install.

Somebody from this forum can offers me an real support to install it ? beginning to download (links) and final with installation.

I will appreciate this, because I'm sure your advice will be very useful for other people which need to install wine on 64bit CentOS.

I waiting much early is possible yours advice.

Thanks in advance for understanding and support.

Best regards.

If, as suggested, you had carefully read the previous thread you [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=25409&forum=44&post_id=104179#forumpost104179]posted in[/url] you might have learned that there is no 64-bit Wine, and that to get the 32-bit version you need to install the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories?highlight=(EPEL)]EPEL repo[/url], and consider installing and configuring the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities]yum priorities plugin[/url], then simply [code]
yum install wine
[/code]
OR if it is disabled by default as often recommended
[code]
yum --enablerepo epel install wine
[/code]

Hi pschaff,

Nice to meet you again. Unfortunatly, your first command : yum install wine dont works for me, maybe because I dont have enable the repositories.

Thank you in advance for your suport.

Best regards.

The expected result. Install and enable the EPEL repository either by default or using the second command.

Hi pschaff ,

Unfortunatly, using the last command :

yum --enablerepo epel install wine

I obtained the next results:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror


Error getting repository data for epel, repository not found

Before of this I used:

>su
>password

What means this answer, and how could be repaired ?

Thank you in advance for support.

Best regards.

Hi pschaff,

I resolve my problem in the next manner: I installed first RPMforge and the second step EPELrepository. Now everithing works good.

Thank you and to all community for support and advice.

Best regards.

You're welcome, but be aware that EPEL and RPMforge may not work well together. The use, and careful configuration, of the yum-priorities plugin, and/or of exclude= and includepkg= directives in the repo configs, may be required to prevent package dependency problems and conflicts, and to avoid unintended replacement of core packages by 3rd party packages when you update.
