    hey guys, im having a problem installing Wine on my Redhat Linux version 9.0 . When i run rpm -i to install the package, it gives me these errors:



    [root@localhost Wine]# rpm -i wine-20050111-1rh9winehq-1.i686.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    glibc >= 2.3.2-27.9.7 is needed by wine-20050111-1rh9winehq
    libglut.so.3 is needed by wine-20050111-1rh9winehq

    you need to update glibc, you can acquire this package at http://www.freshmeat.net/. Make sure to download the rpm file, as this will probably be easiest in your case.

    should i download the file categorized as glibc-audit from freshmeat.net? Is that the correct version of glibc that i need?

    just do a search at the main page for glibc, the first hit that that returns should be the right one, it should say exact match, click on it and scroll to the bottom of the page and find the link for .rpm, download and install that.

    u also can use rpm

    you should simply ask rpm -i glibc
    it is suppos to give you a list back of every choice possible...
    gather the glibc-devel-XXXXX-XXX where xxx are your versions needed.
    after you should be able to install wine...
    if ever you get tired to search this way or on the net, you can also look into your cd2 of red hat (maybe cd3) all the packages of glibc for your version are there, if you plan to update glibc later don't forget to install sources also. By the way in these cds you should find your wine packages and sources... you might install these first and just update your wine version after.
    So these are few possibilities...
    Hope it will help
