winex compilation problems


all right, im pretty sure im just missing somethin, but i need help (again). i decided since it cost money to get precompiled kernels for winex, that i would use it for my first attempt at compiling a kernel...

i dl'd the tarball, and extracted into my home directory (i think i was supposed to put it somewhere else, but i wasnt sure). in the terminal emulator, i typed ./configure, and it ran through a whole bunch of stuff, and then stopped, saying it needed yacc... so i went to rpmfinder, and dl'd it.

once configure was done, it said to run make depend and make... this is where im getting into problems... i can complete make depend (or at least it finished without an error message) but make will finish with this message:

In file included from d3dgl_private.h:5,
from caps.c:18:
../../include/wine_gl.h:31:20: GL/glu.h: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [caps.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/alex/winex221/dlls/d3dgl'
make[1]: *** [d3dgl/libd3dgl.so] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/alex/winex221/dlls'
make: *** [dlls] Error 2

i didnt copy the whole thing, just where is shows the error, the last couple of lines...

any ideas to help me?

i know that they make an rpm file, but that requires that i have to go and sign up and pay them money (which im too cheap to do) hence why im trying to teach myself to compile it... except im not sure where to go from here... i tried make install, but it also terminates in an error, which doesnt help me one bit...

From what I have learned (yesterday night and this morning) was that you get that error due to the lack of Mesa-devel. I of course made a serch for it under rpmfind, and found out that I actually have all the libraries that RPM supplies. The other solution was to download Mesa from source and install it, then install the latest GLUT (also from source) and then try to recompile WineX. I did also, to no avail. The erro keeps popping up. So I jumped to the conclussion (a little bit randomly) that the CVS snapshot I downloaded (yesterday's one) was faulty, and so I should wait until another snapshot is ready to try it again...

Mike:
Before I give away any penny/cent/peso to transgaming I want to make sure I have tested their product, and since there is no demo/evaluation RPM version, well... I am stuck to the sources. I do not want to spend money on a product I will never use due to malfunctions/issues with my hardware or just because it does not do what I want it to do.

I haven't tried compiling WineX yet, I bought the rpm last year...although I will try to do just that this weekend because I don't have the space on the cc to buy a subscription again.

A suggestion, when you ./configure (if you're supposed to, but most source installs do), try a ./configure --help or -h first to see what switches you can use. I find that's EXTREMELY helpful when compiling so you can have the most optimized binary. It also is very helpful to diagnose why such and such install library isn't being found.

Now, that being said...check out this link:

WineX CVS install scripts

If I can't get the compile going myself...I'm going to try these out.
