Description Steven Pritchard 2006-02-13 16:10:55 EST
Description of problem:

wine should Require: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmessage (or /usr/bin/xmessage on FC5). 
Without it installed, using winelauncher gives the following message:

    The Wine launcher is unable to find the xmessage program,
    which it needs to properly notify you of Wine execution status
    or problems.

    This launcher script relies heavily on finding this tool,
    and without it, it will behave very poorly.

    We strongly recommend that you use your distribution's
    software methods to locate xmessage, or alternatively
    use your favourite internet search engine to find out
    how you are supposed to install xmessage on your system.
