Configuring Centos 6 for Wine
 
 
Installing and configuring the base system
Install the system (eventually press TAB and add 'text' to the line...)
 
Get access to the network, connect with your favorite ssh client and proceed,
yum install system-config-network-tui -y
system-config-network-tui
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (ONBOOT=yes)
yum install screen wget mlocate -y
yum install xterm -y
yum install twm -y
yum groupinstall "X Window System" -y
yum groupinstall "Development tools" -y
#yum groupinstall "Additional Development" -y
 
Configure X,
cd /etc/X11/
X -configure
mv /root/xorg.conf.new .
cp xorg.conf.new xorg.conf
Note. if you're running this system as guest you'll have to install the 'tools' or 'guest additions' first.
Note. on virtualbox you should either restart the hal daemon or restart the system to get the mouse and the keyboard working with X.
 
Add some user to use X,
useradd -g users -m USERNAME
passwd USERNAME
 
Login as user and start X,
startx
 
Ok at this point you should have TWM running.
 
 
Requirements
You'll need the EPEL repository for both, Qvwm's dependencies and to install Wine,
wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm
