Problem with uninstall - newbie alert


i'm triyng to uninstall wine, because i'm installing a new version, but i don't know how. i've removed it with pkgtool, but when i try to install the new one i get:

Warning !! wine binary (still) found, which may indicate
a (conflicting) previous installation.
You might want to abort and uninstall Wine first.
Running configure...

And i also get right after that:
./configure: line 88: Permission denied
./configure: line 89: Permission denied
chmod: getting attributes of `': No such file or directory
./configure: line 201: conf15617.file: Permission denied
./configure: line 949: config.log: Permission denied

If i also do ./configure make and make install, and try to run "wine" i get:

wine: cannot open /home/rav3n/.wine : No such file or directory

Seems like i have enough problems, please help this poor newbie..

So you're running Slackware? Have you tried 'removepkg wine'? If this doesn't work, there's always removing files by hand.

fragglehorn is correct about removepkg. however you should read the wine documentation before trying to do the install you typically would not do a ./configure you would instead do something like /tools/wineinstall since that is the prefered way of doing it and it works well
