    Hi manue85,
    On Fedora Core 3, if you use YUM, you can install Wine by running
    $ yum -y install wine

    The documentation is right there on Wine website as a HOWTO : -

    http://www.winehq.com/site/howto

    Or else, you can also read the README file that comes with the source to know how to install from source.

    When i install wine by yum, i have this message
    you have enabled checking of packages via GPG keys. This is a good thing. However, you do not have any GPG public keys installed. You need to download the keys for packages you wish to install and install them.
    You can do that by running the command:
    rpm --import public.gpg.key
    I had installed wine by package rpm, but i don't have the directory .wine and winecfg file.

    /etc/yum.repos.d/

    this directory contains yum configuration files...
    open yum.conf...

    [core]
    check enabled... i think its 0...
    it should be 1
    enabled=1
    remove # sign from base url line...

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi manue85,
    You need to export the variable http_proxy with your proxy settings for YUM to work properly.

    Open a terminal, and run the following
    $ http_proxy=yourproxy:port_number
    $ export http_proxy
    Now run YUM to install/update/remove packages. So that you do not have to do this every time, you can add those two lines to your .bashrc file in the home directory, so that they are executed every time you launch a terminal.

    With Regards,
