You can look at 'WINE' & 'WINE Application Database (AppDB)' to hopefully get information to aid in your endeavors.

Plus look at the bottom of this thread for similar threads.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;

Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking


The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Two facts that may aid in your endeavour:-

- You can't have more than one version of WINE installed without explicitly specializing the install(s) to support this.

- WINE may need dependencies. Quoting the Slitaz website, the dependencies WINE will require is

Quote:
alsa-lib libxml2 libxslt xorg-libICE xorg-libSM xorg-libX11 xorg-libXau xorg-libXdmcp xorg-libXext libgphoto2 libtool lcms nvidia esound
* Also, you may not require compiling it from source. (which appears to be what you are doing)
Slitaz has a 'cooking' repository in which you can download a recent version of WINE. Download it here. To install it (quoting the Slitaz website):-
Quote:
All packages are installable via the package manager Tazpkg using the GUI or the command tazpkg get-install pkgname.
