I use wine from rpmforge repository.

It works well, but all system (bitmap) fonts are missing. DAG could not confirm this as bug, but several other CentOS users confirm that this problem exists.

How to fix:

Install wine (You need rpmforge repo enabled)

yum install wine

Install msttcorefonts

Follow these instructions

move /usr/share/wine/fonts to fonts.old (if already exist remove c:\windows\fonts folder too)

cd /usr/share/wine

mv fonts fonts.old

It is done.

You can use wine and all fonts appear.
