You called my 64 bit OS.

The Fedora maintainer told me he will release RPMs for 1.4.1

In the mean time, I can not get the 1.4RC5 32 bit version to work with Dag Wieer's RPMs


# ls

# rpm -ivh *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
    /usr/bin/xmessage is needed by wine-core-1.4-0.rc5.el6.rft.i686
    libgstapp-0.10.so.0 is needed by wine-core-1.4-0.rc5.el6.rft.i686

    libgettextpo.so.0 is needed by wine-devel-1.4-0.rc5.el6.rft.i686

I also noticed that I do have 64 bit versions of the missing
dependencies above.  I am not sure how to mix 32 bit and 64 bit
RPMs.  (My rpmforge.repo only tries to install 64 bit packages.)

Any words of wisdom?   I take it this is a "distro" problem.

Thank you for the advice,
