RHEL 7 64bit Installing Wine 1.7



The Linux Tutorial Shows You Step-by-Step How-to Install the Latest Wine Stable 1.7.X from Source on Red-Hat Enterprise Linux 7 x8664.

Wine (originally an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD.

Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.
