help compiling wine!


Someone please help me. I downloaded the latest wine source files from winehq.com. I then ran ./tools/wininstall . When it gets to the part to compile it gives me errors like this:
make[1] : Entering directory '/home/tonyh/wine-20020509/library'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'libwine.so'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/tonyh/wine-20020509/library'
make: *** [library/libwine.so] Error 2

and so on and so on. It is as if I dont have the correct permissions or something. Does anyone have any ideas?

um, are you 'su'ing before you run it? when you run ./tools/wininstall su right before that

sorry, I just did what I said I would never do. Give an answer that is as if you know everything and are just asking a quick and dirty.

SU means to switch to super user (root).

so in the command prompt, type "su" and then enter the root password. Then run the command needed.

there are also daily wine builds which work perfectly fine...wine takes a while to compile...try those instead
