1.) I downloaded the WINE RPM. I dragged it into my home folder and put it in a folder named wine. I navigated to it using the Super User Terminal and:
# cd /home/eric/wine
Fine; it worked. So I'm in the directory. Then I type:
# rpm -i wine-0.9.38-mdv.i586.rpm
It sits there with the cursor just blinking. After a few seconds, it sends me back to the directory I was just in. To make sure, I try installing it again with rpm -i wine-0.9.38-mdv.i586.rpm and it says it's already been installed. I restart the computer and do it again, and it still claims it's installed. My question: Where did the program go? I can't access it, find an icon, or even find it with the search tool!
Another problem, installing Avast! Antivirus for Linux:
I get the tar.gz package. I use ARK to unzip it to /home/eric/avast4workstation-1.0.8. I use the super user terminal to navigate to it and type:
It says "No such file or directory."
I try doing the same after navigating to the program's bin folder. Same [bleep] thing.
When I try:
It says "No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."
Even wierder is, I go into the bin folder using the GUI and I right click on each and say run as root. I can actually USE the program, but once again, if it's even installed, I can't freaking find it!
PLEASE, can someone help me with this!?
