Installing Wine -- Slackware 10.0 (help)


I'm having trouble installing Wine on Slackware 10.0 (as the subject may suggest). I've already downloaded and extracted Wine-20040813-i686-S10.tgz according to the HowTo on the wineHQ site (sorry, I'm not cool enough yet to post a link to the site). (I do realize this package states that it is for Slackware 9, but I could find no later release). I followed the HowTo directions, but the suggested command of ' ./configure && make depend && make && su -c "make install" ' wasn't accepted. Someone on mIRC suggested that it was already configured so I didn't need that extra step, but when I loaded my gui and attempted to run Wine, I got error messages stating it did need to be configured.

Clearly I'm really new to this. Can anyone offer idiot instructions??!

Thanks!!

well first and foremost before you start troubleshooting all that
you did download a *.tgz file, which is a slackware package ..
so all you have to do is type as root :
Code:
installpkg Wine-20040813-i686-S10.tgz
oh and just go here for one built for slack 10

I would also get a copy of winetools, which will help you set up your config file

If you plan to run photoshop you might need to replace X.org with XFree86 4.4, which can be found in the unsupported folder on any slack mirror.

I just did the same

Using the new package from linux packages worked great. I did not have a need for the tools however. Below are some helpful tips for running Wine in Slack 10.0:

1. If you do need to run from the Konsole or Shell the you might need quotes as seen below in this line:

wine "c:\Program Files\Corel\Bryce 5\bryce5.exe"

2. Another key note is that some programs behave terrible when run in KDE desktop.
Using a simple desktop such as failsafe which comes with Slackware can help out a lot as it did with Bryce5.0 mentioned above.

3. A common post around the forums is that many people cannot find /root/.wine/ where the fake c: windows partition is kept. You may need to enable "show hidden files" in your file browser.

You shouldn't be running wine as root
