2.6 not in the list, why?

But,,,, with wine 2.6, I can not input any key in some(maybe all) games. I had changed many options in winecfg but fail.

I think wine-2.6 just made it to the repos, your metadata is > 3 days old, and therefor it's not showing up. If you refresh it, 2.6 should appear: dnf list --refresh --showduplicates wine.

Actually your dnf downgrade command uses recent metadata, and that's why wine-2.4 is not found.

If you want wine-2.4 or 2.5 for Fedora 25, you can get it from the build system. Remove your wine 2.6 first, then use dnf to install the rpm from koji

When i execute dnf list --refresh, 2.4 gone, only 1.9 and 2.6 here now. So dnf update not refresh matadata? For I had do a update at 2017-05-03 16:30.

in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
