    Default I really need a lot of help [Starting with installing wine]


    I have just downloaded and installed opensuse 11.1. I thought I could
    manage to learn the fundamentals of linux by myself, or at least get a
    little right.

    After 5 hours of accomplishing absolutely nothing I thought I would try
    and get some help from opensuse.org.

    If there is anyone who has a little patience and is willing to explain
    some fundamentals to me I would really appreciate it.

    The first thing I would to learn is how to install Wine. I downloaded
    the newest version but I think I downloaded the windows installer
    version. I think I managed 9using yast) to find a online version to
    install, but with the bandwidth being so expensive in this country I
    would really like to find out if I can install it from the version I
    downloaded.

    I apologise if this is the wrong section to post this in and appreciate
    any help offered.

    Dear Connaver, wine is not the best first step to take to "...learn the
    fundamentals of linux..."!!!
    Quit the GUI, go to command line with a good book about bash wide open
    on the table!

    Won't you learn linux starting with windows applications ... or no?

    Good luck!

    There's a wine tutorial for openSUSE here:
    'Geoff's Linux tips - wine'
    (http://gdr.homelinux.com/suse-tips/wine-apps.php)

    To install the contemporary RPMs, add the 'repository he mentions'
    (http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_Ya...ositories#Wine) and
    you should have the near-latest with the added advantage that it has
    been tested and integrated into openSUSE.

    I used Linux for three years before I felt the need to install WINE.

    what exactly is it that you feel you need WINE for?

    there is very real little reason to immediately try to run
    Windows[tm] programs under Linux.

    There are all sorts of programs to replace those. Have a look at
    http://www.osalt.com/ and
    http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html

    if this posting is not helpful, don't get mad...i'd give you some
    fundamentals but i don't know where to start. That is, are you coming
    from Ubuntu or Win95. Are you familiar with using a command line in
    OS/2 or Vista? Have you yet read any of the online information
    available at openSUSE.org?

    Before you install SuSE 11.0 read this. If you already installed and
    it all went sour, read it BEFORE you reinstall:
