As I am adding repositories from http://download.opensuse.org for added functionality, I noticed a couple of different directories for the same repository; however, one of the repository's links end with a colon (" : "), example:



http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators/Wine/SLE_11_SP3/




http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Stable/SLE_11_SP3/


To which repository should one subscribe to get wine installed on SLED 11.3?

Thanks in advance.

I tried to edit the above message:

The underscores should be dashes



http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/SLE-11-SP3/




http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/STABLE/SLE-11-SP3/


Unfortunately, I passed the 10 minute marks :/

The above two (corrected) URLs both provide versions of Wine suitable
for SUSE Linux Enterprise (Server and Desktop) 11 SP3 but each offers a
different version.

The first offers version 1.7.20 whilst the second offers 1.4.1 and I'm
guessing the STABLE reference for the second is meant to suggest that
1.4.1 is considered a stable version. Note also that version 1.4.1 is
only available as 32-bit whilst 1.7.20 is both 32- and 64-bit.

According to the official Wine Downloads page at WineHQ[1] the latest
development release is 1.7.20 (which matches the first URL above) but
the latest stable release is 1.6.2 which suggests the second "stable"
URL above is out-of-date. I also note that link to Download SUSE
packages on the Wine Downloads page leads to the first URL above.

All of this tells me that if you want to install Wine on SLED11 SP3 you
should use the first URL above though note that since it's not supplied
with SLED then it's unsupported by SUSE.

HTH.
