Wine/WineX

Recommended Posts

Hii, I read the tutorial on the video drivers for Nvidia I got them working thanks to this great board, so after they were working i had gotten curiuos about what games could be installed. I had been reading on a tool called wineX, which lead me to believe it was better then wine, so I then downloaded the source code and ./configured then make depend && make. All seemed to go well to this point, the tutorial i was using stated it was imparitive I delete wine before installing wineX, so I tried command line rpm -e wine...

This I thought would have uninstalled wine so I proceeded to install wineX (make install), everything seemed to look good until I acually tried using it. The errors I recieved after this point were large.

 

First error when i tried uninstalling it again under su - (rpm -e wine):

 

error reading information on service wine: No such file or directory

error: %preun(wine-20030709-1rh9winehq) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

 

Second error I recieved (apt-get remove wine):

W: Some errors occurred while running transaction

 

If you have any information about how I can fix this problem that would be great, perhaphs theres a way to delete all the files and directories associated with wine so I can reinstall it...

 

 

Thanks
