    Hi jkmartha,

    I searched for you and found wine 20040505 for RH9 (a little older but it should still work well). Just download that file (the link to download is under the google text ad). Then, open a terminal and cd to the directory you downloaded it to. As root, type
    rpm -ihv wine[rest of name].rpm
    After that is done, you should just be able to type
    wine [program name]
    and have it work, assuming it works with wine.

    Hope that helps,

    wine lib error

    Hi Bryansmith,
    thanx for your reply. Instead of rpm, i opted for source & installed after ./configure,make depend, make,make install. It was all successful except for a message at the end which said.......something related to "library not loaded". Now, when i run # wine, it says ......
    "wine:error while loading shared open shared object file: no such file or directory".
    if i run # wineconsole, it says ......
    "/usr/local/bin/wine: error while loading shared open shared object file: no such file or directory".
    Anyway, how exactly should windows program run ??? just # wine <program name >..........will this do ? In place of <program name >, what exactly should i write for example ?
    After installing wine, no further configuration !!!! just start playing or should i have to configure anything else ???

    you must have a working wine cofig file before starting.

    well i am new to it too but here is an easy way of cofiguring wine.
    use the config file that comes along withe original source (search for the file name cofig in the source tree)
    now download winetools from here
    (there is a section marked 3rd party tools)
    use this program to setup wine for you (including fonts , a fake windows drive etc)

    tell if you get it working, good luck.

    Install "gcc" and "make".

    Or directly use the Red Hat binary package :

    i managed to run the make installl cmd and i got this error where could be the problem guys.
    The installed Wine libraries will not be found!

    You can either:

    Add the line '/usr/local/lib' to /etc/ and run /sbin/ldconfig
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
