Unable to install Wine (nothing to do)

Postby migcla » 2009/06/26 22:17:36

Hi,

Let me start by saying I'm new to CentOS. But we're getting a server with CentOS soon so I'm experimenting on a virtual machine for the moment.
One of the things I'm going to test requires me to have wine installed on the CentOS box.

I found that to install wine I need to use the command "yum install wine".
When doing this nothing really happens. I get the following output on the screen:

Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.crazyfrogs.org
* updates: base: centos.crazyfrogs.org
* addons: base: centos.crazyfrogs.org
* extras: base: centos.crazyfrogs.org
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package wine available
Nothing to do.

I've already issued the "yum upgrade" command but my problem still remains.

Does anybody know of this issue or is there anybody who can help me with this?

Thanks very much in advance,

Miguel.

Good afternoon,

How do you install wine without yum ?

Can be more explicit ? I'm beginner in Linux platform.

Best regards.

I frequently use yumex, which is a graphical front end for yum. I like it because it lets you select pacakges and see their size (along with dependencies) after you choose 'apply' and then go back and unselect 1 or 2 or whichever packages if you want, easier than you can using yum from a terminal. Of course if I know the package name and it's just 1 or 2 packages I just use the terminal.

Failing that, there's also the option of using the Package Manager, just go to >applications >Add/ remove software and there is a tab to search by package name, and you can select the package(s) from the list. However, it doesn't give you the package size or other details during the download and install procedure that you get with yum or yumex.

To install yumex, you can just 'yum install yumex'

Thank you for advice. Last night I try to install wine using yum option, and the answer it was like server is not available. After CentOS I used Ubuntu 9.04, which is very easy to use. I migrated from Ubuntu because I'm mechanical engineer and I want to install on sistem ANSYS 11. Beside of this I want to learn to use comand line. I'm beginner in Linux paltform, but how I observe is very useful to learn command line, because is more power (in my opinion) comand comparison with graphical command.

Thank you in advance for help and support.

Best regards.
