A Guide To Using Wine

Arrow Image Emulators ?

If your reading this article you should know what 'wine' is . It is a windows emulation 'program' for linux , well in this article we are gonna learn how to use it and how to install it ok so first of all lets define a few things , so i don't have to say lets open up terminal if what i type has a [root@localhost] before it it is a command you need to run (note this needs to be done in root )

Ok lets get started first we are gonna download the .rpm (only if you use RedHat , Fedeora or Mandriva , compiling it from a sourceball will be explained later on

Just go here and download it , we will explain how to use it after i explain how to compile it from sourceballs , so basically if you have fedora , madriva or redhat , just download wine from that link and it is installed

Compiling Wine

For those who couldn't do an .rpm installation we will explain how here , so lets do this (to compile the source package you need bzip2 installed which should be in /usr/ports/archivers/bzip2 , if not download it)

[root@localhost]# cd /bin
[root@localhost]# wget
[root@localhost]# tar -yfx wine-0.9.27.tar.bz2
[root@localhost]# cd wine-0.9.27
[root@localhost]# ./configure
[root@localhost]# make
[root@localhost]# make install
so basically what we do here is go to the directory bin , untar the sourceball , move to the wine package , configure it then install it finally =D which is good if you have gotten this far everything is ok . Now onto using it

Save a windows application to any directory preferably /root then
[root@localhost]# cd /root
[root@localhost]# wine yourwindowsappyousaved.exe

This moves to the directory where you saved it and then tells wine to run it =D congratulations on getting wine to run
