Wine Compile problems

Im running a fedora core 5 x86_64 with a new kernel for my motherboard, im running on a amd64 . Im trying to compile wine or winex, but each one has different compile errors. When I try ./configure on wine cvs, i get at error near the end that it cannot find the X development libraries, but it can compile fine, but wine just wont run without the x libraries. Problem with that is, I have the libraries installed. Now with winex cvs, I can ./configure just fine, and it detects my x development libraries just fine, but it wont compile becuase there is no build target for my cpu architecture, x86_64. Also, the wine cvs has build targets for x86_64. Ive tried and failed by moving all the include/ files from wine to winex.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

wine is still alpha software, since winex uses wine this applies to winex.

best ask for support at the winex or wine website, and try not to build wine on a 64 bit system, this has never worked for me either.

hope u find it

I compiled wine in the past in x86_64 platform, without problem.
Well, you will need some 32 bit -devel libs intalled before being able to compile. Just follow the errors telling you about not finding some lib.

to compile
export CC="gcc -m32"
export LDFLAGS='-L/usr/X11R6/lib'
make install

By the way, wine rpms are now included in fedora extras. Thats where I've been getting them. There a few wine packages. Have them listed and the select the ones you want

yum list *wine*
yum install wine

Thanks for the compile options info. I'll give it a try later today.
