how do i install Wine?


none of the RPM files seemed to work for me so i'm trying to use the source here.

throughout today i've been trying to compile Wine, each time telling me i needed a different dependency (such as bison, flex and XFree86-devel) and each time i got the dependency then tried again. right now it's reached the end though, i get a non specific compile error as seen in this picture. this is a compile error (make), not a file placement error (make install)

yeah i know but if it dont work you can do it by hand
./configure
make
make install

youl nedd some directories :
#

Configuration

In order to run Wine needs some files and directories.
First you must create a virtual ('fake') windows drive
The following directories must exist in your $HOME directory:

.wine/

.wine/c_drive
.wine/c_drive/Windows
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Fonts
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Start Menu/Programs
.wine/c_drive/Windows/System
.wine/c_drive/Windows/System32
.wine/c_drive/Windows/Temp
.wine/c_drive/Program Files
.wine/c_drive/Program Files/Common Files

After this copy the following files from wine-YYYYMMDD/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine/Windows:

system.ini
win.ini

All applications will be installed on this fake Windows drive. Refered to C: inside of Windows applications.

Wine also needs a configuration file. Copy the file config from wine-YYYYMMDD/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine.
#

The Wine configuration file

The config file is pretty self explanatory, just take a look at it. The only thing you probably have to change is the mountpoint of the cdrom drive.
You can get more information by typing:
man wine.conf


there you go

cheers

erling

ps:this is a more secure way if you want to be sure that it work
