View Full Version : Wine installation woes and/or up2date issue

Problem one: I downloaded wine so I can play the games I know and love. I entered into the terminal rpm -Uvh <filename>
It went through the whole process, but I cannot find Wine on my system. I believe it did not install. Can someone help me figure out where I erred?

Problem two: I only recently switched to fedora 1, so I am being informed by the flashing ! (by the clock) that I have 110 updates. Unfortunately, it also informs me I have up2date-4.3.16-1, whereas I need up2date-4.3.19-1. In searching online, I have been unsuccessful in finding an update for up2date. Help me?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Problem one:
type wine in a console.

Problem two:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/1/i386/up2date-4.1.21-3.i386.rpm

Tips: use yum for the update

being completely new to linux (3 days), what is yum?

edit: and does it matter that that download is 386 instead of 686?

Alright. Yum is the default package manager for Fedora.
Here is some documentation for you:

tried installing the up2date rpm.

/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts: invalid context system_u: object_r:staff_home_spamassassin_t on line number 1856
error: Failed dependencies:
up2date = 4.3.16 is needed by (installed) up2date-gnome-4.3.16-1


Any ideas?

from this documentation, I get that, to install Yum, all I do is type "# yum check-update"

but that does nothing...

edit: typing "wine" in the terminal yields:

wine: failed to create the process heap



Sorry to be such a nuisance, but I really need the help.

It looks like you've installed one of the Fedora Core 2 test releases with SELinux (Secure Environment Linux) enabled - personally, I was never able to get things working right with SE turned on.

However, if you right-click on the red flashing !, you should see Launch up2date on the menu - select that, enter your root password and follow the prompts. That's probably the easiest way to go...

Hmm. Okay, try this - open a terminal, su to root and enter yum update. yum should then download the necessary header files and then list all the updates it will perform when you enter y at the prompt. This is the method that I've used when up2date has been too slow.

Be advised that the above can take quite a bit of time, depending on your connection speed.

Good luck!

Definately long. My cable is out, so I'm using 56k that connects at 28.8 :(

and any thoughts on the wine problem?

Nothing specific - I've never used wine, myself. From an earlier post, I'm not sure if "failed to create the precess heap" is SELinux-related or not. Perhaps you should try Run Application... from the main menu?

There's a wine HOWTO in this forum....
