Playing 3D games also requires the 32bit OpenGL drivers installed, apart from Wine itself.

yum -y install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
yum -y install wine

Then grab your First Decade installation DVD, install at least Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 & Yuri’s Revenge by calling setup.exe with wine. After the serial number orgy, copy over a no-cd crack (do that at your own risk, otherwise keep the dvd in your drive all the time).

Yuri’s revenge requires a virtual desktop in Wine, so adjust that one inside ‘winecfg’:

wine_cfg_yuri_01 wine_cfg_yuri_02


Then make sure to select Pulseaudio as audio source.


Start Red Alert 2 – Yuri’s Revenge either directly where it is installed using ‘wine YURI.exe’ or natively from the Wine menu.
