well i installed playonlinux package from "software". but when i run it it gives me the message playonlinux cannot find gpg (from GnuPG). you need to install it to continue. and also when i open "#wine notepad" it gives me a SELinux trouble. can someone please help me out? i installed GnuPG from the terminal but playonlinux still gives the same problem.

It appears the playon linux package is NOT SIGNED. Read more here:

You'll have to install it manually from the terminal:

sudo yum install --nogpgcheck /path/to/rpm

Please keep in mind that since this package is not from the fedora repos, we won't be able to help a lot with any bugs you run into :(

For the wine issue, open the SElinux notification and it'll tell you what to do.

sudo yum install /usr/bin/sealert

Please open separate posts for each question in the future.

Lastly, there are a hundred better editors in the world than notepad.. :)

"No package /path/to/rpm available. Error: Nothing to do" this is what it showed me after i started installing playonlinux manually from the terminal. it downloaded every update it can and in the end this is what i am shown.

By /path/to/rpm I mean "provide the complete path to the rpm file that you've downloaded".
