Please help me recompile

Hey there!

My compiled wine complains about X11. After some searching I found that I needed to recompile wine with an extra file in my /lib/wine folder.

Now I work with Linux on a daily basis (servers etc for work, and desktop at home) but I don't know how to recompile. And since I couldn't find much about about I thought let's put it in the Newbie section.
Excuse me for the simple question. ;-)

If it means recompile wine then the normal procedure for most source files is
make install

There are usually install or readme docs that explain the install procedure because not all are compiled this way.

Point us to the link that mentions the fix maybe it may require you to define something on the ./configure line or edit the Makefile.
