yum remove wine leaves wine menu items

ok I tried wine again
yum -y install wine

but it did not work. could not run anything, configurations hang, etc...
so I
yum remove wine

but the menu items are still there

also see, remove is not removing wine.!
[root@localhost ~]# wine
Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...] Run the specified program
wine --help Display this help and exit
wine --version Output version information and exit
[root@localhost ~]# yum remove wine
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Remove Process
No Match for argument: wine
No Packages marked for removal
[root@localhost ~]#

Ok, I just used package manager gui and it removed wine, so why cant yum remove it?
Why can't wine work for me in FC7?

I just now tried using package manager to install wine and it hangs

I uploaded a picture to show you, the screen window shows a wine configuration window that has grabbed part of another windows screen.

Report the issue with menu entries staying behind as a bug to bugzilla.redhat.com against the wine package. It is a bug as the entries in the menu won't actually work as you've removed wine.

I had the same problem and a very kind person called leadgolem gave me this to run and it worked like a dream:-
yum remove wine
rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
rm -rf $HOME/.wine

Re: yum remove wine leaves wine menu items

I know this problem's been solved, but thought I'd add a slightly more laymen version for noobs like me

woodgnome was totally right with his post:

I had the same problem and a very kind person called leadgolem gave me this to run and it worked like a dream:-
yum remove wine
rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
rm -rf $HOME/.wine

However, to illustrate, this is essentially removing wine menu entries that exist inside a given user folder. This can become slightly confusing as there are also entries living in the /root directory, but don't pertain to user folders when these entries are removed. The commands I ran to remove wine entries from my user menu were as follows:

In my case, from /home/techbart I navigated to ./.config/menus/applications-merged/

From here any menu entries added by wine should be listed, and a simple "rm -rf" should remove each item from this dir. Hope this helps

Re: yum remove wine leaves wine menu items

BTW, if you're runnng 64 bit Fedora, try installing wine.i686. The default install for 64 bit Fedora is 64 bit wine. The last time I checked the wine home page, 64 bit wine was still considered very experimental.
