Thread: Installing Wine

  1. #1

    Default Installing Wine

    Hey everyone, i've been trying to figure out how to install Wine but it doesn't make any sense to me, I found these instructions at How to install Wine in OpenSuse 10.3 | SUSE & openSUSE also (below) at but they don't make any sense to me could anyone possibly elaborate on this please?


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Install Wine

    OpenSuse:/ # yast2 install wine

    Install CabExtract

    Cab Extract is a free opensource software to extract Microsoft cab files from installers. This should be installed by default. If so, yast2 will report it to be already installed

    OpenSuse:/ # yast2 install cabextract

    To verify installation,

    OpenSuse:/ # rpm -qa wine cabextract

    wine-0.9.62_aka_1.0.rc1-3.1

    cabextract-1.2-57

    Now, you are ready to install Windows applications on your OpenSuse 10.3 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It is much easier to just install it from Yast.

    How so exactly?
    It's just another option and maybe it's ease relative to 'zypper' is all rather subjective.
