    [SOLVED] IEs4Linux


    Hi

    I am a novice in software installations in Linux and am trying to basically install IEs4Linux (Main Page - IEs4Linux)
    because I need to access some web pages which arent firefox compatible.

    According to the instructions on the home page I need cabextract and wine on my linux system before I can run IEs4Linux.

    The sequence of steps I have followed so far:
    Install wine using:
    yum install wine

    The output:
    "[root@abc /]# yum install wine
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do"



    install cabextract using:
    yum install cabextract
    The output I got:
    "[root@arcturus /]# yum install cabextract
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    updates 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
    base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    addons 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do
    "



    After this Download the IEs4Linux tar file and unzip it.
    and then I try to run the IEs4Linux and get the following message:

    [root@abc ies4linux-2.99.0.1]# ./ies4linux
    You need to install wine first!
    Download it here: Wine HQ



    So my question is do you have any idea what i am doing wrong or which steps i am missing etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    many thanks in advance

    Hi and Welcome !

    "[root@abc /]# yum install wine
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do"
    wine is not installed in yet. Executet this
    Code:
    yum -y --enablerepo=extras install wine
    [root@abc ies4linux-2.99.0.1]# ./ies4linux
    You need to install wine first!
    Download it here: Wine HQ
    Never ever run ies4linux as root user. Log out and log in again as Regular user and execute above command again after installing wine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi
    Thanks for your comments Casper but didnt work


    [root@abc ~]# yum -y --enablerepo=extras install wine
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process

    Nothing to do

    [root@abc ies4linux-2.99.0.1]# ./ies4linux

    Regarding your comment on not running the ies4linux as root user, it does not make a difference for me as I actually have a virtual machine running on my windows environment and this whole excercise is to actually produce an image to be used for testing later on.

    cheers

    Follow instructions from here to enable RPMForge Repository.
    Execute yum install wine after enabling that repo.

    Nice one Casper. Got it working.
    Just to finish off the post incase some one else is facing similar issue I got the following message after executing above mentioned instructions:
    [root@abc ies4linux-2.99.0.1]# ./ies4linux
    IEs4Linux 2 is developed to be used with recent Wine versions (0.9.x). It seems that you are using an old version. It's recommended that you update your wine to the latest version (Go to: winehq.com).


    But after installing cabextract didnt see the outdated wine message again and every thing went smoothly.

    Thanks again Casper
