Hi there, I'm having some troubles installing Wine 0.9.60 under Vector 5.8
I've downloaded the correct version of Wine put it on an USB-stick en plugged into my system. I've placed the .tar file on the desktop and un-tarred it to the desktop where two new folders appeared; usr and install
So far so good you could say, but now I don't exactly what to do to make Wine run or install?

Please help this newb! Thanks in advance guys  Smiley

Grab the newest package from here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6241&package_id=6301

Right click on it and choose to install...that should work...I tested the .9.60 version on the SuperGamer release and it installs fine I did not try the newest version

Thank you very much Darin, it is executing the install script right now... it is taking pretty long though, I'm very curious how this ends.

Thanks again
