Simple Wine Question


When i go to run wineinstall, the following error comes up:

Code:
WINE Installer v0.74
 
You're running this from the wrong directory.
Change to the Wine source's main directory and try again.
Thanks in Advance!

How are you running wineinstall?
As far as I know, the correct way to run wineinstall is from the main source directory of wine (*not* the tools directory), and to run it like so:
./tools/wineinstall

Good luck!

yes, that is how I am installing it. I have the .tar file in /username/home. I am compiling from the source.

Hi,

I took a quick look at the wineinstall script for you ... here are the lines that are triggering your error:
Quote:
if ! [ -f configure ]
then {
echo "You're running this from the wrong directory."
echo "Change to the Wine source's main directory and try again."
exit 1
}
fi
Are you in the directory with the configure script when you're running ./tools/wineinstall? Maybe you downloaded an incomplete tarball or something and your configure script is missing.

I downloaded and triedn it again ,same error.

I think it may be related from what directory I unziped the tar to. I unzipped it to the /home/username, and that is where the WINE folder is also.

I did what is said above, and the installer ran. When it complied however, about a thousand of these errors appeared:

Code:
main.o(.text+0x13b0):/home/wayeryan/wine-20030219/dlls/ddraw/main.c:532: undefined reference to `GetProcAddress'
About a thousand of these, with the only difference where is said "GetProcAddress" appeared, and the install failed. Another example is below:
Code:
dsurface/user.o(.text+0x985):/home/wayeryan/wine-20030219/dlls/ddraw/dsurface/user.c:526: undefined reference to `LeaveCriticalSection'


Any more help?

so you ran it from /home/wayeryan/wine-20030219 ...
It seems it has not compiled some obj... check with df wether you're running out of disk space (or quota, if enabled).
