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
Before reporting bugs against Wine please make sure your system is fully up to date.
Also check if a newer version is available in updates-testing.
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing upgrade wine
If you are using the proprietary graphic drivers please remove them from your system and try again, as they are known to cause problems.
When debugging Wine, your goal is to determine if the issue is one of code functionality or packaging in Fedora.
Check the Wine Application Database to see if your application is supported, or if there are known issues that match yours. Anything that falls into this category is a bug in upstream code functionality.
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. Consider filling a bug in the upstream Wine bug tracking system.
If you really think that your bug is Fedora-related, file a bug against the Wine component in Fedora's bug tracking system.
