    No problem. It was the first hit on a Google search for "wine for opensuse 11.1", cut and pasted from your topic heading.

    I'm sorry, I can't help much with that. I've been working with Unix, and then Linux, for about 25 years, a couple of years after I got my degree in information systems, so I'm not a good judge of what you'd need starting out.

    RE: ... 'witch' version ...
    Written in this way the word means 'an evil and malicious old woman from the past (and not only) practicing black magic & witchcraft'. The other word is 'which' ... Anyway.

    RE: WINE
    By installing WINE you make the Linux OS more complex and hence you hinder the performance and spoil the reliability, and besides that your OS becomes more vulnerable to attacks from Internet, Skype, etc.

    I don't know what functionality you are looking for, but everything that you can do with WINE, you can do also without WINE.

    RE: What is the idea?
    Maybe I am missing something, but you went to linux for most probably you were sick with the 'over 103 000' computer viruses, and the very moment you 'arrive there' you start asking how to make a 'back-door'. Words fail me ...

    Try googling on the Linux Documentation Project - the guides include "Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide"

    Trust your instincts and trust yourself. How?

    1. Look for any package in the repository list ... at first, before going to Google.
    2. Don't install packages you don't know what they are doing.
    3. Clean up your computer regularly with Bleachbit and Bleachbit as Administrator.
    4. Do not install more than two browsers, ... and two chat messengers.
    5. Forget about WINE.
    6. Believe in 25% of what you are reading, and 50% of what you are seeing ... installed somewhere.
    7. Take it easy - if you send the OS in the Dimension X - so much the better. The skills you have acquired maybe deserve the efforts ... for restoring the system.
    8. When you don't know what you are doing - drink whiskey or champagne.
    9. You are the Jedi Master of the digital world.

    Regards
