Hi,

That error means the CD is listed as a software source, but it isn't in the CDRom.

Go to Systems/Administration/Software Sources, go to the Third Party Sources tab and uncheck the box nest to the listing for the CD.

When you close it, it well tell you it needs to reload the software sources - let it.

Then you can install Wine.

Regards,

Didius

do as didius said.

or

just put a # in front of this line in the sources file.

deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 8.04.2 _Hardy Heron_ - Release i386 (20090121)]/ hardy main restricted

and also,

the last deb line has an illegal url, and it is duplicate of the one 2 lines before it. put a # in front of it too, and reload the sources.

to edit the sources file

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
to reload the sources

sudo aptitude update

+1 Nice catch!! I missed that "," in the last line. Too focused on the CD thing...

thanks for responding. i must be a "DO IT WRONG" bean cause i'm unable to put an # in the software sources. the "ADD" button failes to light up. however i unchecked the cdrom, and got more error messages. i then removed the 2 wine lines, ran the codes above, and its working again, but i still dont have wine. what am i missing, not doing, and not getting?

thanks
