    wine –version

    Why old version? How to update to latest?

      It seems the default repository not updated yet with latest will be available soon…

    Dear Ravi,
    Thanks for this article.
    I have installed Centos 64 bit. I installed wine. But it return me command not found.
    Do I need enter command ./tools/wineinstall on 64 bit Centos?
    Thank in advanced!

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Which CentOS version you’ve installed? have you followed 64-bit wine installation steps correctly? what error you getting? can you post here that error message, so that I can help you out…

    Why don’t we have subscribe to comments option here or will I get the notifications automatically

  4. Linux User says:

    Well written article but in which version of linux have you checked it?

    RHEL 6.0 initial commands work fine till the normal extraction though I was wondering when we were already in /tmp then why we used the -C option?

    on 64 bit system ./configure –enable-win64 gives many yes and many no, so not sure if it worked fine or not. When I do #make then it says “No target specified and no make file found” I also got an error similar to Christian and when I ran #yum install xorg xlib xfree64, can’t say if its right for 64 bit then it says no package found. What to do next? Do I need to configure any special repos for this as I was installing from DVD itself as yum server.

    I was also wondering why we are getting Xorg error though I am in GUI mode and how come one be in GUI mode without X11?

    yum install “Development Tools’ say no package available in CentOS 7?

    though apt-get seems to work fine in Debian 7.7

    • Ravi Saive says:

      I’ve checked under CentOS 6.3 and 6.5 32-bit systems, but to be frank never tried on 64-bit systems. Thanks for bringing to our notice, we will surely give a try on CentOS 7.0 and will update you with the new instructions on CentOS 7, till then stay tuned…

      • Linux User says:

        I have not got any notifications so can’t say which plugin or what inbuilt system are you using?

        • Ravi Saive says:

          @Linud User,
          Did you’ve checked in spam folder? please check and update us….so we could add comment notification feature to the comment box..

      • Linux User says:

        I liked your frankness and appreciate it along with other articles. As a reader would suggest you to use 64 bit systems (as it is only used in servers) atleast if not the latest versions as you know its all about upstart & systemd now.

        I was also wondering why and from where you used the 64 bit command if not tested yet? You guys are doing good but the reliability is about the tested commands and procedure for Linux blogs so that the readers should not have to work much after reading a blog post.

        Please also let me know if you have a post of installing Firefox in Debian 7.7 64 bit with or without Iceweasel.

        • Ravi Saive says:

          @Linux User,
          I do agree that, I didn’t tried on 64-bit, but the steps are taken from official wine doc and it worked for few users if you see comments..Anyway, give us some time we are installing CentOS 7 64-bit OS for wine testing, will udapte the instructions in the artilce, and about Firefox the article in progress will publish soon…..thanks for being royal reader :)

        • Linux User says:

          I did check that and its not there so people are not coming back for discussion if you have noticed and Linux is impossible without discussion. I wonder if you have a separate forum for this?

          Its not possible even for me to specially open this page to check the replies and hence a comment feature box is required.

          • Ravi Saive says:

            Thanks for such good tip, as we haven’t enabled “comment notify” feature in our site yet…but we surely enable this by today…this way we could keep user engagement ON….

    sudo apt-get install -y wine —> will install wine 1.6.2

    Be sure to remove the blank between ‘wine’ and ‘1.7’ as shown upper on this page.
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -y wine1.7 winetricks

    About= wine 1.7.30

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Thanks a ton for bringing to our notice, it was a corrected in the article..Thanks again…:)

  6. Parker says:

    “apt-get install wine 1.7 winetricks” – it’s a bad command, please fix it. what’s more – it won’t work on Debian!

  7. RhceNippon says:

    Can we unmount the /proc partiton ?

  8. Christian says:

    Hi all.
    Sounds like on my configuration (CentOs 5.6 i386) I can’t make the code :

    checking for X… no
    configure: error: X development files not found. Wine will be built
    without X support, which probably isn’t what you want. You will need
    to install development packages of Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least.
    Use the –without-x option if you really want this.

    trying a make with the option does not work too.

    Any idea ?

    Hi all,

    you are posted articles are good.
    most of people are using windows OS, because of MS Office and easy user interface. If all windows related software can install in linux , every one can try to migrate to linux. this is my personal opinion.
    today will try to MS Office and update here.

    Hi Ravi,

    All the articles posted by you guys are really awesome great work wanted some more.

    Can you please let me know the command to list the largest file in the entire / partition in Ubuntu.

    Awaiting for your reply.

    • Ravi Saive says:

      You can use the find command to find out largest file size in / partition, here is the comand you can use to find out large files between 100MB to 500MB.

      # find / -size +100M -size -00M
