Question problem with wine


hi am using ubuntu and try to install wine from source and when configure it i got this error :
checking for X... no
configure: error: X development files not found. Wine will be built
without X support, which probably isn't what you want. You will need to install
development packages of Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least.
Use the --without-x option if you really want this.

.. how can i solve this problem ? i dont know what X development file ? and dont know from where can i download it ?

Well, that seems straightforward. Why not go to synaptic and look for X-devel? In fact, why not get wine from synaptic rather than installing from source?

Well, then, like I said, go to the package manager and look for anything with xorg-devel or similar and install it. Then try again. Ubuntu doesn't have all the resources for compiling/building installed by default (unlike slackware). You have to install them first.

even if i try to install using apt-get install wine , it require me install all X package , is there way to install all X-devel rather than install each lib independently coz each package i install require other package

I wouldn't argue with synaptic. If it says you need the whole thing, you need the whole thing, in my opinion. That is the advantage and disadvantage of a dependency resolving package manager.
