Hi
wine x86_64 rpm is available on third-party EPEL and RPMForge repositories.
Add EPEL or RPMForge repo and install wine rpm by yum:

Code: Select all

# yum install wine

Thanks for replying. I already have downloaded this wine-1.3.7-1.el6.rft.i686.rpm
However, when I try to install it, I get dependencies errors.
I also tried wine-1.2.1-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm, with the same result.
error: Failed dependencies:
wine-capi = 1.2.1-1.el6.rf is needed by wine-1.2.1-1.el6.rf.i686
wine-cms = 1.2.1-1.el6.rf is needed by wine-1.2.1-1.el6.rf.i686
wine-core = 1.2.1-1.el6.rf is needed by wine-1.2.1-1.el6.rf.i686

wine-twain = 1.2.1-1.el6.rf is needed by wine-1.2.1-1.el6.rf.i686
I am not really good at Linux, could you please tell me in steps how to do it?

Thanks a million! :D

Welcome to CentOS.
You need to do some reading:
http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/vie ... p?forum=47

You need to enable the rpmforge repo, and install it ftom there.

I already have installed it: package rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64 is already installed.
rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
package rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64 is already installed
Any ideas?
But when I try: yum install wine
I get the error:
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.kiewel-online.ch
* elrepo: mirror.solvention.de

* updates: centos.kiewel-online.ch
Setting up Install Process
No package wine available.
Error: Nothing to do

You have x86_64 and RPMforge has only ix86 wine packages. If you want x86_64 wine you need to disable RPMforge and install/enable EPEL.

Code: Select all

# uname -i
x86_64
# yum --enablerepo rpmforge list wine\*
Loaded plugins: priorities, protect-packages, refresh-packagekit
28 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

Thanks SO much Phil. I followed your instructions. :D
All I needed to do was:
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/e ... noarch.rpm
yum install wine

I really cannot understand why people are posting useless posts instead of sharing two commands.
I mean my God! Posting a URL for the entire support forum!!!??? I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy! :-(

Anyway, I posted the instructions, for anybody else that will need to know how to do it.

Have a great day! :D

As Gerald said: you need to do some reading.
Just posting a url is not going to teach you anything.

Your question was answered in the very first reply, by lystor.
Lose the attitude.

---
Give a man a url and he can solve a problem
Teach a man how to find urls and he can solve many problems.

I'm sure you get the idea.

Your sarcasm and dissatisfaction are noted. The instruction I pointed you to tell you all you need to know to accomplish what you did, and other people would be insulted by spoon-feeding of basic commands. We cannot guess the knowledge level of everyone asking a question.

If you need more specific help after doing your own research (trying to learn to fish) then please ask, including details of what you tried and where you encountered difficulties where applicable, and help will be forthcoming.

Have a nice day.

Phil, there was absolutely no sarcasm about thanking you on helping me out. My thanking was genuine. My dissatisfaction was exactly what I said. I had gone though hundreds of pages in the forum and I could not find something helpful for version 6, since it's very new. So I asked for help. Instead I got a reply sending me back to square one. However the pointers you gave me helped me to solve my problem within 5 minutes! My problem was that I was trying to install a 32 bit repo in a 64 bit distro. Now that had nothing to do with the pointers the others gave me. All I am saying is when you don't know something, you shouldn't try to help.

With respect,

7of9
