Since you say you can't configure wine correctly, I assume you got it to install already? Were there any build errors and if so, what were they? What happens when you run the command 'wine whatever.exe' where whatever.exe is the filename?

go find the perl script winecheck and check your wine configuration with it.

Did you run

$ winecfg

to configure wine as the user who wants to run wine?

You have no $HOME/.wine/config file because you have not done so.

That is why wine is whining.
