    Unhappy Help a super n00b download WINE

    I am trying to download WINE to run starcraft 2. I followed links and websites and ended up at this repository Index of /repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_11.4
    I have no idea how to download and install WINE. I'm sure its super easy but I've been reading through forums, official help manuals, wikis etc. and the best advice they offer is," download WINE and install it." If someone was patient enough to write out step by step, command by command, how to download and install WINE from that repository I would be a friend for life, unless you did something heinous and evil. Explain it to me as if I were your 100 year old uncle whose only computer abilities were to get online and post on this forum.

    I'm running openSUSE 11.4

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    Welcome to the forums ktthross. You could use that repo URL, and add via the zypper command manually(with root privileges)

    Code:
    su -
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_11.4/ wine
    The 'su -' command is used to gain root privileges (required for most admin tasks). Now, the zypper command will add the wine repo. Next, you type

    Code:
    zypper in wine
    Follow the prompt given to install.

    You could also do the same via a '1-click' from this page:

    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    Scroll down to the wine repo, then click on '1-Click Install'. Follow the prompts given (root password etc).

    BTW, since you're new to openSUSE, (and possibly Linux in general), you may find these guides useful:

    Thank you deano. I did get Wine through the Yast2 installer. I did try the using the terminal command but it said 'user zypper does not exist' I am assume that zypper is something else that I need to install so I will try that.


    Thank you very much.

    Well done.

    That error occurred because you tried to type 'su - zypper.....', when it was actually 2 commands:'su -' (to become root), then 'zypper ar .....' (to add the repo)
