Unhappy Wine question ( I know im prolly a newbie)


started linux like 5 days ago... it's awesome but i dont want to switch back and forth between windows and Awesome!! Redhat 8.0... And when i try to compile the newest wine source I get :

Running configure...

./configure: line 85: conftest.sh: No such file or directory
./configure: line 86: conftest.sh: No such file or directory
chmod: failed to get attributes of `conftest.sh': No such file or directory
./configure: line 198: conf1926.file: No such file or directory
./configure: line 945: config.log: No such file or directory

Configure failed, aborting install.


What's the problem here? I'm sorry if im annoying you with my newbie-ness but please help me out. Thanks in advance!

Another note: When trying to install the RPM's supposedly made for Redhat the i686 and i386 rpms would load up in linux then report " This installation will take: 0 KB" and then nothing happens... Im very confused..

I'm a newbie too. I don't use RH but I've managed to get Wine from source going on Mdk9.

Here's a couple of shots...hope this helps a bit.

1. What did you download? a tar.gz file? did it extract properly? Where/how did you extract it if you did.

2. Are you in the actual directory where you extracted wine and not in a subfolder?

3. Are you doing this as a user or as root?

For myself, I had downloaded something like wine-20030115.tar.gz into my /home/downloads directory and doing a "tar -xzvf wine-20030115.tar.gz" created subdirectories, and going into the first one (called Wine-20030115 I think..I'm going from imperfect memory) and doing ./configure worked fine and dandy. Since I was doing it as root, it installed without a hitch.

I have downloaded the Wine-2003115.tar.gz and the RPM versions, I have put them into my /home/usrname/ folder and used the tarball program extractor to "drag them" into that folder.. is that a problem? So it put the folder in there and I follow the instructions such as ./configure at the command line while in that folder it says to be in and I think (from my newbie skills) that it gets into the "make" part of my command (I typed : $./configure; make; make install) and it gave me that error. Tried it on root and my username. The RPMS just said this install will take "0 KB". That was by double clicking it and doing the automatic shizz. Should I do some manual terminal command? Any ideas? I'm usually on Aim: SchwarzeFeen or ICQ: 96953352
You can just reply here though it would prolly be easier.
Thanks!

Well I'm not familiar with any tarball program extractor or the error message you mention from the rpm...

Your best bet would be to try it on the command line as the instructions say on the winehq site and see what happens from there.

one problem I had while configuring samba is the name of the directory in which it is located. I extracted the archive to a folder named SAMBA227 but got error messages.
I realized that the directory should have been named samba2.2.7a instead. That might be your problem.

I also tried using the tarball extractor once and nothing worked.Best bet is to use the command line
tar xfvz file.tar.gz for a gzip file (gz) or tar xfjv file.tar.bz2 for a bzip2 file
