It's really not advisable to install binary RPM's not built on or for
your distro.  Try and find a wine build for RedHat 7.2 or a SRPM for 7.x
and '--rebuild' it.

Or better yet go to and download a codeweavers-wine
rpm built for RedHat 7.x.

    would have to fiddle a bit to get it working.
    Which reminds me, I'm trying to install a fresh verison of wine but I
    get this:
    [root@h... bob]# rpm -Uvh wine-20020710.i386.rpm
    error: failed dependencies:
            OpenGL is needed by wine-20020710-1
     is needed by wine-20020710-1
     is needed by wine-20020710-1
            alsa-lib   is needed by wine-20020710-1
            cups-lib   is needed by wine-20020710-1
    Now, those look pretty straightforward to find, except for OpenGL.  Any
    idea where I can get this?  Am I going down the wrong track?  Oh dear me
    RedHat 7.2.

    Give Wine a go.  Or Crossover Office (based on Wine).  But you best bet
    is probably VMWare.  I use VMWare a lot on my box to run some 'required'
    Windows apps.  VMWare is very snappy on my Athlon 1Ghz with 512MB of
    RAM.  VMWare isn't cheap but it's cheaper than buying a whole other PC.
    And it provides other neat features that you can't do with 2 PC's, like
    copy and paste from X to the Virtual Machine.

    Anyone know if it is possible to get MYOB running under any of the 
    programs (eg Wine, Plex86, etc) that let you run windows code in Linux?
