    Wine: Where do I get it and how do I use it?


    I want to run a few windows apps on Mandrake 9.1. I have heard this is possible through a progam called wine but I don't know where I would get it (free) or how to use it. I searched around on the site but the stuff I found I didn't fully grasp or wasn't an answer to my problem. I apologize if I am asking a question which has been answered already.

    why do you need to compile it into an rpm???

    If you can get the source, you can compile and install it properly

    Oh well in that case could you explain that to me? I downloaded a diff.gz file and a tar.gz file but I don't know what to do with them. Help would be most appreciated.

    and using checkinstall you can create a rpm that you can use later.
