Wine Updates (for Perl
Builder 2.0 - Linux)
Note: The Version 2.0n
update above already includes the latest version of Wine. You do not need to
download this as well.
You can obtain the latest RPM for WINE here. Simply download the
"stripped" build and install using your package manager.
You do not need to reinstall Perl
Builder. However, if the RPM indicates that it has overwritten /etc/wine/wine.conf
you will need to restore the old version of the wine.conf file. The RPM should back
this up for you, but it may be a good idea to make your own copy of this file.
If you fail to restore the wine.conf file,
Perl Builder will not run.
The RPMs on this site our updated daily, so
you may wish to download an update periodically. These files are provided by members of
the WINE open source development team and are not tested or guaranteed by Solutionsoft.
Any time you install a Wine update, please be
sure to retain the last working RPM, since there is always the potential that something in
the new version will break Perl Builder.

WINE project and available at WineHQ.com
