View Full Version : WINE not installing....

20th November 2006, 11:24 PM

I am using Fedora Core 5 and 6 and trying to install WINE. I got all the latest files but when I double click on the .rpm file(s) they just say cannot install because you are not connected to the internet.

It is completely correct. I am not connected to the internet at home so... Does it not install offline? Why does it need to go online. It didnt need to with fedora core 4. I have noticed it uses a different package manager.

I have all the files and it should work.

If anyone could help me I would be thankful,

(everything else but WINE seems to install fine)
(I am using vanilla/fresh FC5 and fresh fc6)
(same happens with fedora core 6 too)

i know nothing of fedora core 5, but i strongly reccomend upgradeing to fedora core 6, before you get set in with a new os

The exact same thing happens...

it could need the internet to check for required software, then download it, or to check for updates.

hmm.. Perhaps... but then again it going to be hard to install with no internet connection then isnt it :p
(im at the library at the moment BTW)

If you use yum or yumex, wine is available as an install. 'yum search wine' will show you all the options you can install.

EEP! No internet? Okay, let's try this: http://www.city-fan.org/tips/YumRepoFromImages and grab wine off of the CDs or DVD.

so how would I use that?

yum (path to rpm file) ?

or do i need a -i or --install?

thanks for the help by the way :)

Ohh, after some internet searching, now i know why it needed the internet... it has a few dependancies such as libglut and stuff so if I get them sorted, it shouldn't need to go online again. I think I must not have them so the cleaver git that fc5/6 is, goes online and gets them for you.

Thanks for your help guys, I really appreciate it. I will also disable the repo's as instructed because then I will know exactly what dependencies I need!

Thanks again,

The path is going to be in /dev . You can find it with the 'locate cdrw" (or whatever it is) command in a terminal.

Edit: Okay - looks like you're all set then! Congrats!
