    well if wine was installed wiht redhat then it is probly an old version and you dont want it anyways, you might want to try rpm -e winepackagename or else try going into /usr/include/wine and type make uninstall then download a new version fo wine and install that, usually when wine is packaged with a distro then by the time the end user gets it it is outdated/broken

    #wine <path of an exe file>
    then i got an error:
    wineserver: chdir /root/.wine : No such file or directory
    hi aparna ( Appu ),
    the error clearly says it cant find /root/.wine directory.
    do
    Code:
    # mkdir /root/.wine
    and restart wine.

    regards,
    Sunny.

    Hi appu,

    Download your appropriate wine. here.

    Wine shop!!

    --------------------------

    After downloading,

    Step 1:
    Code:
    # rpm -ivh --force wine*.rpm
    Step 2:
    Code:
    # wineserver
    Step 3:
    Code:
    $ wine program.exe
    you are done....
    I've just TESTED wine ( just now installed wine :8 ) and it's working

    regards,
    Sunny.

    send your system configuragation:

    Version of your Linux: eg. Redhat 8, or 9 or something like that.
    Make of your processor: P4, P3, Athlon or some thing like that.

    hey sunnylearns just have a look at this:
    [root@aparna root]# wine /root/ymsgr.exe
    Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
    Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/root/.wine/config)

    now what????????????????
    and by the way how do u get to know which wine is appropriate for a particular system??????????????????????

    PS: trying wine first time
