its because I tried the version in the repos and it did not work for me.
I am running FC7 test3.
So after trying to make wine work for a few weeks, I decided to try the latest and greatest and compile from source. Now it actually is working, but the wine tools I tried to install says
it needs wine, but I do have wine installed!
[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -Uvh winetools-0.9-*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
wine is needed by winetools-0.9-3jo.i386
[root@localhost Desktop]# wine --version
[root@localhost Desktop]# wine
