Default What I thought to be installed is NOT installed

Well, This morning, I go to install my .rpm with Konqueror that will launch and install in YaST. No problems at all...it updates its sort of registry, but to try to see if it is installed, I download Winamp.exe (The setup) and I type in Wine. It goes Wine is not found. Am I missing a step or what?

Bear in mind, once this installed, I am good to go. I can even install some more Linux goodies after that.

Just to know: What did I miss? Is it EVEN called Wine?

-------edit----? Most of the time you need to install wine, not too many systems come with it.

YaST being on suse, suse doesnt come with wine installed.

That's what I know, but I have to install it manually, but when I installed it, it's like as if it's, not configured or something....

I have found, that more often that not, you have to go back into it and do the install. When you tried to install it the first time, did it prompt you for the root password?

Yes it did. I typed it and it went straight ahead. I did it twice now...

Try this and see if it is actually installed or Yast just says it is:

Code:
rpm -q PACKAGENAME

If it isn't, I would go ahead and use the command line to install it.

Code:
rpm -i FILENAME
