I just reinstalled 10 - 10 on an old Dell desktop w/ 3G of ram, two hard drives, one with XP Pro and the other with 10-10. A Windows virus took out one drive and fouled my boot loader.

I had Wine installed and it worked well. After the reinstall with a new CD, Wine will not install. I tied Synaptic Package manager, I tried to download and install from the Wine Web site and I tried the command line.

Every time I get 3/4 of the way through I get through the install I get ask to put the CD in the drive. The manager looks for a file "pool/main/a/ auto

The file (a) does not exist on the CD. The install hangs. My question is Where can I get an iso with this file on it?

My guess would be corrupted data or damaged medium, possible problem could also be a dirty medium or dust in DVD unit. – danizmax Mar 27 '11 at 23:12
did you use a live cd to install? – RolandiXor Mar 28 '11 at 4:58

try touch /forcefsck or go to update manager then to source and remove your cd so it wont try to install wine form the cd and just from internet
