Packages

name summary
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-pulseaudio PulseAudio support for wine
wine-alsa ALSA sound support for wine
wine-jack JACK sound support for wine

Bugs and problems

Having trouble?
You may want to consult the list of current Fedora Wine Bugs.

Before reporting bugs against Wine please make sure your system is fully up to date.

yum upgrade

Also check if a newer version is available in updates-testing.

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing upgrade wine

If you are using the proprietary graphics 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:

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.


Updates-Testing

If you use the version of wine in the updates-testing repository then please log into bodhi and comment on the build, including any problems that may be in the packaging, naming, or elsewhere. The build needs positive karma to be pushed to the updates repository.
