    Default Version of Wine am I using?

    Hi all,

    This is for an 11.0 64 bit machine.

    I am trying to figure out how to tell which version of wine am I using?

    I have an application that was running great with wine before wine took an update. Now after several reinstalls, this application is still not running correctly.

    I have another workstation here that did not take the wine update, but cannot figure out which version it is. The same application is running great on it.

    How do I tell which version Wine is?

    Thanks

    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep wine
    wine --version

    So what did you download is it an rpm or gx file?

    This is from the wineHQ website:

    http://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/system/...-1.1.5.tar.bz2

    It is a collection of files, not a single rpm or gx file.

    I need this version in order to match the working version on the sister workstation I have.

    The Opensuse repos don't have this version.

    Thanks

    That looks like a source file that you would need to compile.

    There should be a readme file in the package that gives instructions.

    You will need to at least install the gcc compiler.

    Thanks gogalthorp, I forgot about the gcc compiler. I was trying to follow the readme, but kept getting bash errors.

    Hi Caf, I don't know why, but the sister workstation to this one is completely the same as this one without the wine update, and my app works great on it.

    I didn't think so either, until I did this update. Funny thing, though. It backward updated. version 1.1.5 is the version that works, and the repos backed up the version to 1.1.43.
