there's nothing like replying 3 months later...

I've just installed these packages, and since I don't know nuthin'
about wine, I'm wondering if there is some procedure one should go
thru to make sure it's ready to go, before I try installing Windoze
packages on it...

I vaguely recall hearing about such things, but can't remember any
of the details.

Thanks, in advance, for your advice!

PS: Has anybody been able to get the Kindle for PC Reader to work on
wine? I'd appreciate hints.

thanks in advance!
