I'm a newbie to linux. I'm trying to install wine through software manager, and it 'freezes'. I open SM and search for 'wine'. I dbl click on the first option, and I get the linx equivalent of the 'hourglass', and nothing happens after that. It just stays that way. I can close the software manager, with no problems.
Also, I can open the manager, and open/install other types of software, so it seems 'wine' specific.
I've tried installing it through the terminal, as well., using sudo apt-get install wine1.5
I get this error:
Reading package lists... Done
