I have not worked with Slitaz distribution.

Some distributions ship wine with iso CD image. If Slitaz does not ship wine, You may download wine source here.

Unzip the package, you will be provided with README or INSTALL file, which clearly describes dependency list along with steps to install Wine.

Have you checked the dependency of WINE on libraries from README or INSTALL file ?

Make sure all the libraries required to compile WINE are installed on your system.

What all have you tried. Can you please post it here ?

Dear shadow_69_91,

Hope this slitaz is a very tiny distribution, which carries no additional packages.

To build, compile and install WINE you need to have C compiler, which is GCC. Now you have two choices

1. Download GCC source and install it.
2. Download GCC package from Slitaz repository, if it is available.

By the by,

1.which packages does Slitaz accepts (.deb or .rpm) ?
2.Which is the package manager being used in Slitaz to resolve dependency hell ?
