You are still on branch 4.

If you want to be able to get the latest versions of packages, you'll need to make the jump the entropy branch 5 (or install from Sabayon 5.0, which starts on branch 5).

The latest wine in branch 5 is 1.1.29 at the moment.

Hi. Another method is to use portage. Open up a konsole. Type su and enter root password. (you should make sure your portage is up to date by typing emerge --sync) Then type emerge wine. This should install the latest version in portage. It is alot slower doing it this way then using equo however. Cheers dave.
