Wine is an open source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and OpenGL.
Fedora's Wine packages are split up to allow for smaller installations. The wine meta package will bring with it the most important components of Wine. Expert users may want to pick specific components from the list below:
|wine-capi||ISDN support for wine|
|wine-cms||Color Management for wine|
|wine-core||Wine core package|
|wine-devel||Wine development environment|
|wine-ldap||LDAP support for wine|
|wine-tools||Additional wine tools|
|wine-twain||Twain (image scanning) support for wine|
|wine-openal||OpenAL sound support for wine|
|wine-pulseaudio||PulseAudio support for wine|
|wine-alsa||ALSA sound support for wine|
|wine-jack||JACK sound support for wine|
|wine-esd||ESD sound support for wine|
|wine-oss||OSS sound support for wine|
|wine-nas||NAS sound support for wine|
Additional documentation is provided via the wine-docs package.

Newer versions may be available in the corresponding updates-testing repositories.
Bugs and Problems
Please see the list of current Fedora Wine Bugs.
Before reporting bugs against wine please make sure your system is up-to-date.
Also check if a newer version is available in updates-testing
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing upgrade wine
Please make sure before reporting bugs that you have at least the wine meta package (+ dependencies) installed
Then check in the Wine Application Database  if your application is supported and the bug is a packaging bug and not a bug/missing feature in wine.
The next step is to check in the above list if your packaging bug has already been reported.
If you are using the proprietary graphic drivers from ati or nvidia please remove them from your system and try again as they are known to cause problems.
The next step is to see if the problem persists with a clean ~/.wine folder. To try this without losing your old configuration do something like
mv ~/.wine ~/.wine-save
Afterwards try to trigger the bug again. Your original wine folder can be restored with
rm -fr ~/.wine; mv ~/.wine-save ~/.wine
If your application still does not work but has been working in a previous version of wine it is probably a regression. Take a look a the  wine application database and consider filling a bug in the winehq bugzilla  .
If you really think that your bug is packaging related file a bug against the wine component at  .
