Installing Wine, no opengl support?

I am trying to install wine with running WoW as my goal. I installed the wine from yum, but I have an nvidia graphics issue. I narrowed down the problem to a bug solved with a patch, but in order to apply the patch i need to compile wine. After I run ./configure I get an error:

configure: WARNING: Wine will be build without OpenGL or Direct3D support
configure: WARNING: because something is wrong with the OpenGL setup:

Any suggestions would be great, I have been looking around on google for a while now with no answers

AFAIK yum installs binaries so you shouldn't need to build wine from source. However, I could be wrong. That said, why do you need to compile Wine before applying the patch? Patches are applied to the source tree before you configure and compile.

figured it out.

yum installs version 0.9.24 which requires a patch to get wow working correctly with nvidia video cards.

To get 0.9.25 working I had to install the x11 development package.

Everything now works fine
