The latest installation instructions for Wine

In this article I will show you how to install WineHQ 1.5.27 on OpenSUSE 12.3, OpenSUSE 12.2 and OpenSUSE 12.1.

There are some repositories available, so we do not need to make an installation from sources.

Because there is no wine repository for OpenSUSE 12.3, we will install it from the 12.2 repository (I have tried this and it works just fine):

Add the Wine Repo with zypper:

Syntax: zypper ar -f <URL> <alias>

For OpenSUSE 12.2 / 12.3:

$ sudo zypper ar -f wine

For OpenSUSE 12.1:

$ sudo zypper ar -f wine

For OpenSUSE 11.4:

$ sudo zypper ar -f wine

Refresh the repositories:

$ sudo zypper refresh

Install Wine:

$ sudo zypper install wine1.5 winetricks
