  • you can either install wine via yum (install manager that retrieve the needed rpm and install them by checking the dependencies) by launching 'yum install win'.
  • Or you can install directly the rpms from a redhat repository (i.e: You will need to install all the following rpms list:
  - wine-capi-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
  - wine-cms-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm

  - wine-desktop-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
