wine package installtion problem


Hi friends

I m facing problem during installation of wine package after untar I give command

./configure

which shows some dependencies error

After resolving all these errors I am getting this message

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.

Please help me out to solve this problem

What distro are you using? Most distros have a pre-built version of wine in the software repositories. You should only build from source if you cannot find a pre-built package.

If you want the latest release, the wine folks even make pre-built packages for many distros. See here.

I think wine is in the RHEL repos (it's available in my centos anyhow - you might need to enable some extra repo), just install it with the add
/remove software feature.
