I guess I need to broaden my reading of these postings since when I first read
your original post I only looked at the body of the message and thus I failed
to notice that the subject header specified SuSE 9.3. I am also using that
distribution and for the last two to three months YOU (YaST Online Update) has
kept trying to give me Wine version 20050211 as a security update for the WMF
exploit. As I understand it, at least the most recent five or six versions of
Wine have plugged that hole and are far superior to version 20050211. I would
be very interested in what you have done to the YaST repository if you have
changed something that eliminates that nag from YOU.
I use Wine because Pegasus Mail (Windows based software) is my mail client of
choice. I cannot use Wine versions 0.9.9 through 0.9.11 for various reasons to
run this application.
