    I don't run RHEL or Wine so don't know if there is a 64-bit version of Wine in the Red Hat package repositories, but if the command yum install wine doesn't give you want you want, you can take a look at the following RPM files to see if they might work for you:

    RPM Search RedHat EL 6 wine-core 1.2.3 rpm

    yum install wine and got

    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
    Setting up Install Process
    No package wine available.
    Error: Nothing to do

    then tried



    ran install and this was my error message

    That's one of the problems with RPM package distros. If you don't use a package manager, such as YUM, you have to download any dependencies of the package you want to install, and of course those packages might have their own dependencies as well, which often brings about what is commonly known as "dependency hell".

    There might be a way to install it with YUM and it will pull in any dependencies, but it's been years since I last used YUM so I'm not up to speed with it. Maybe a current YUM user will chime in with some info for you, or they might know where there's a 64-bit Wine package in a repo somewhere so you can install it that way.
