The wine site lists the stable version as 1.0.1, I would like to update to this latest stable version.
Can this be done? Is it recommended? If so, can someone help me or point me to some helpful directions on how?
P.S.I have tried doing it thru Yast and altho it did an update, it still lists 0.9.64 aka 1.0rc3-2.2 as the version, so I am beleiving it just updated that version.
Thank you caf4926, PeeGee, etamPL.
the suggestions you all made were for Wine 1.1.31, which is the development version, but I would like the stable version 1.0.1 for now, as I am running older programs [winmx 3.54b4, MS Excel 2000]and have been told development version is not for me.
caf4926:when you say “I use wine from here and it’s great” what type of MS software are you running thru wine?
At the moment very little MS stuff, I just don’t need it really. I have Virtual Box with XP and honestly that boots quick than a real XP install. I have a game Tomb Raider Anniversary installed, but I maintain Linux Boxes for folks and they have the same wine setup and have apps such as Dreamweaver, Internet Explorer, Firefox.
This version of wine is rock solid. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Your advice has always been good for me, so far.
Altho, just last nite I was told that winmx does not work properly on anything above wine 1.1.24. Not Wines problem I suspect, but winmx.
Now I just need to figure out how to upgrade to wine 1.1.24.
