Trying to instal Wine

Link to this post 17 Jun 09

Hello Everyone!

I am a newbie and need your help. I was trying to instal Wine on my computer by downloading the rpm from winehq.org.

I started by clicking on the Wine rpm, which starts off Yast. Well, Yast asks for repodata and says that the file is not there on http:\\download.opensuse.org. I somehow got around that problem by mentioning a sub-directory which had the file.

Well, after downloading the required repositories, Yast proceeded with the installation, but finally came up with an error message regarding some broken pipe error!

I don't know what to do! :S

Regards.

What is your Distro (b/c of Yast, I assume some SUSE flavor) and Release Version?

I think SUSE supports yum. Do you have yum installed/configured? If so, it could be as simple as doing this in a terminal (as root):

yum install wine

See here for more on SUSE, yum, and Wine.

Well, after downloading the required repositories, Yast proceeded with the installation, but finally came up with an error message regarding some broken pipe error!

Could you provide us with this exact error message?
