      Could you provide the following information:
    rpm -qa | grep wine
    rpm -qa | glibc
    uname -a

    So people here can have more understanding to assist you.

    On RedHat 9, wine requires you to start the wined daemon or service. To start the service, try following commands:
    Login as root to your system
    # ntsysv
    You will see the list of services on your system and choose wined. Should be down at the end of the list.

    After that, you can start wine to see if it works.

      ntsysv only change the boot-up running daemon list.
    You need to run
    # service wined start
    to run it right now.
