Make directory with mkdir /home/uym("mylogin name")/Downloads and Transfer the wine-1.1.5.tar .bz2 to it.Give command from terminal tar -xjvf ~/Downloads/wine-1.1.5.tar.bz2 and give command cd wine-1.1.5 and enter to this directory. When i give ./configure it returns as foll:
checking build system type ... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1

Are you connected to the internet? If you are, you don't really need to compile anything.
