So I am trying to install Wine in Fedora 16, but I am getting the following error:

--> Processing Dependency: libncurses.so.5 for package: sqlite-3.7.7.1-1.fc16.i686

I already did a yum update, so what else can I do?

Thanks

Your problem is that  Wine wants 32-bit libraries but you have a 64-bit system:
Protected multilib versions: freetype-2.4.6-4.fc16.i686 != freetype-2.4.6-3.fc16.x86_64
You need a full 32-/64-bit installation to run a 32-bit program like wine. Or see if you can get a 64-bit wine (I have always built it as a 32-bit app myself, but maybe it now will build OK for 64-bit).
