When I removed wine ("yum remove wine") I decided to wait for my repositories to get the .58 update.

None of the proper menu entries are showing up in the gnome menu either. Typing the "wine" command in console reveals the rest of the package installed fine.

To create ~/.wine directory run 'wineprefixcreate'.

If you don't have Wine's own menu entries, like winecfg, notepad, etc - ask the person who made the old Wine package. Those links are not part of vanilla Wine and all packages that come from this site don't create them. Of course you can run those programs directly from terminal or 'run command' menu.
