./configure and Wine


I'm sure it's probably a simple error of my own doing, but in the interest of time, I'll just say the problem, it has been going on for about a week now though:

When I try to ./configure Wine (after doing file-roller on the downloaded *.tgz and getting (inside of my /Wine/ directory) /usr/ and /install/) it says it can't find the program ./configure

Any ideas? I've been working a lot on this, and inadvertantly stumbled across fixes to other issues for my Slackware install in so doing... hehe.

this is slack, and that's a tgz. so, as root:

installpkg name_of_package_.tgz

(or its pkginstall, tbh I dont remember, I dont use the slack package management =] )

Actually, I think what's happening is that the ./configure is not in then /usr or /install dirs
If you don't want to use the package management that comes with slack (and I personaly don't blame you, don't use it myself), then untar Wine
Code:
tar -xzvf wine-xx.x.x.tgz
cd to the directory it created
Code:
cd wine-x.x.x
and run
Code:
 ./configure
<EDIT>
Side note: a *.tgz is simply (typically) another way of saying *.tar.gz - treat it as such
</EDIT>

well no. If you dont want to use the package management, dont download a slack package. Just download a regular tarball :/

I really appreciate the extra information, but all I was looking for is anything that would make it... work... lol

Wow, it's that simple? Ok, well thanks guys, especially you m00t00, because it was your fix that I tried first. I just didnt want to reply too soon because I've done that before when one thing worked and another didn't and I ended up double-posting with an edit of a new problem.

Now all I need to do is learn Wine.. Thanks again. =)

scuzzman, yes you can, but last time I checked, it was a binary package, with the files in the package as they would be relative to the root directory (IE you have a /path/to/untarred/slackpack/usr, and all the files under there would install under /usr). Now mabye im wrong, and they changed formats, but thats not the nicest thing to try to compile from source, no? =D

then most likely you didnt download a slackware package. Tell me more, what package is it, where did you download it, the full text of the errors, etc.
