Wine on Vecorlinux
« on: September 25, 2011, 07:15:33 am »

Hi guys, i'm very new to the vectorlinux community. As you can see above, i would like to install wine on VL and i am clueless as how to go about it. I've downloaded a slackware package, is that what i am supposed to do?

If you could help point me in the right direction, i'd be grateful.

the easiest way IMO would be to run slapt-get from a root terminal
Code: [Select]
slapt-get --update
slapt-get --install wine
