these are commands that you need to run at the command line.
open a shell /terminal and at the prompt enter the commands as shown. (to make and install the modified code, you may need root privaliges)

MV, moves a file or renames it depending on the format used
CD, change directory (same as windows)
PATCH applies a patch or software change to some piece of code. If this is needed then wine won't run your app without being modified (patched).

I have not built wine from source myself, but i'd just follow the instructions (and backup any critical data first)

thank you,

i got quite far on the tutorial, but now im stuck, again.

after changing dir to /home/sigurd/Downloads/wine/wine you are supposed to run

> ./configure

after i run that command i get an error

Code:
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
the tutorial says something about this, but i dont know how to progress

the tutorial says:
// always check the last few lines of the ./configure output for missing dependencies errors etc.
// If configure reports any problems then in most cases you will need to resolve the problem reported
// before continuing with the installation. With the release of 0.9.12 configure may complain about a
// couple of missing font programs. I tried installing these but whether you really need them I'm not sure.




sorry for being such a newbie, but i just started working whit Linux

You need to install gcc, which is a C compiler. This is necessary if you want to build software from source. Are you sure isn't a pre-built package for your distro, which is likely to be easier to install than installing from source.

looks like you don't have development tools installed , either that or GCC (the compiler) is not in your path.

I'm not a frequent Ubuntu user, but I think you should be able to use synaptic (probably in a menu called install new software)to check what is intalled. If GCC is not installed then install it.

if GCC is installed it will be in the folder /usr/bin (if Ubuntu is setup like mandriva). If it is there then you need to update your path to include this directory
this should be in a file called .bash_profile in your home directory.

hope this helps, sorry it's not precise but as I say I don't use Ubuntu
