I have downloaded the Setup from here.

How do I install it now?

You can simply install with:

yum install wine

No need for that package. That package probably contains sources, so unless you want to build from sources, a premade binary is much easier.

yum not found. Now what do I do? – Lazer Feb 1 '10 at 4:12
yum not found, on Red Hat Linux? You must have done a very minimal install. Do you have rpm at least? – John T Feb 1 '10 at 4:13
You could grab wine core for i386 here:… (I don't know your architecture, just a guess) and do rpm -i wine-core-1.0.1-1.el5.i386.rpm. I assume there are a ton of dependency errors you'll get, so you'll also need to install them. – John T Feb 1 '10 at 4:19
yes I have rpm. How to install wine using rpm? – Lazer Feb 1 '10 at 4:23
From here: select your version of Red Hat and architecture, then find wine-core, the main package you'll need. Expect a lot of dependency issues though, you'll need to find other rpms as well. I'd strongly advise installing yum instead. – John T Feb 1 '10 at 4:26
