Alrighty. I love YaST. But its wine package is horribly outdated (the YaST version is August 13, 2004, whereas I downloaded the SuSE RPM from March 10, 2005). So I ...

Installing a Manually-Downloaded RPM
So then, I open konqueror and click on the RPM. I select "Install package with YaST". It asks me for my root password. I enter it, hit enter, and YaST opens. I do a search for "wine", and the correct package shows up (Version 20050310). It is already checked. So I hit "Accept". Nothing installs, and it asks me if I want to install anything else. I say yes, check my installed wine version, and it is still 20040813.
So I try a different approach. I again try and install my RPM via YaST, and it opens and all. So I now choose to Update the wine package. After I hit "Accept", I am told:
Package wine-20050310-1.i586.rpm was not found on the medium
So basically, how do I get this stupid package to install. I am not allowed to make this directory into a YaST source.

you could try adding an online source to install from, then it will install (maybe not the latest version) but it will be later than that."I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"

When I try running from the terminal, I get
linux:/home/alex/downloads # rpm -Uvh wine-20050310-SuSELinux82.i586.rpm error: wine-20050310-SuSELinux82.i586.rpm: rpmReadSignature failed: region trailer: BAD, tag 61 type 7 offset 48 count 16 error: wine-20050310-SuSELinux82.i586.rpm cannot be installed
Any other possibilities?

From the error message, it looks like a corrupted download. Delete it, download it again and try to reinstall.Registered Linux user #384279

I made another godawfully stupid mistake.
Basically, the RPM I downloaded was for SuSE 8.5. I downloaded the 9.2 one, and installation via YaST worked fine.

I'm willing to bet that the full path to your rpm contains a space
If this is true, YaST will not be able to find wine and give you that error message. try renaming so there are no spaces ex:
and It will work fine
EDIT: nevermind, you fixed it
