    Thank you for posting this tutorial.

    I am attempting to install Wine on OpenSuSe Leap 15.1, so here I deviate a bit from your tutorial. In consequence I changed the repository to: http://…./openSUSE_Leap_15.1/…
    After refresh and install, I get the following error:
    Problem: nothing provides wine-32bit = 5.11 needed by wine-5.11-lp150.1177.1.x86_64
    Solution 1: do not install wine-5.11-lp150.1177.1.x86_64
    Solution 2: break wine-5.11-lp150.1177.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

    I do not like any of the options. Do you have any thoughts on how to install it properly?

    Looking forward for your answer.
    Best regards,
