I installed Wine 1.4 rc5. Later I realised that this wine won't work because there is no sound. I removed it using Synaptic Package Manager and installed Wine 1.2 which is the stable version of Ubuntu 10.04. Even though I install it. It's still showing Wine 1.4 rc-5.

1. "$ wine --version" returns 1.5.20. I'm trying to install v1.5.28 from the PPA, though "$ sudo apt-get install wine1.5" states that "wine 1.5 is already installed". How do I upgrade wine? (would rather not build from source, but I'll do that if there's no other choice).
