wine error

distro - redhat 9. problem on wine installation & configuration.Instead of wine rpm, i opted for source & installed after ./configure,make depend, make,make install. It was all successful except for a message at the end which said.......something related to "library not loaded". Now, when i run # wine, it says ......
"wine:error while loading shared open shared object file: no such file or directory".
if i run # wineconsole, it says ......
"/usr/local/bin/wine: error while loading shared open shared object file: no such file or directory".
Anyway, how exactly should windows program run ??? just # wine <program name >..........will this do ? In place of <program name >, what exactly should i write for example ?
After installing wine, no further configuration !!!! just start playing or should i have to configure anything else ???

Okay... firstly, I'm a newbie, so I may be off base here...

I loaded Wine and found I couldn't do anything. Then came across Wine Tools 2. Loaded it up, and it set up the virtual windows drive, downloaded and installed fonts and IE for Wine... everything seems to work great now.

You can download it at:

Give it a shot, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Did you use
./configure ; make depend ; make ; make install

If you did, it is incorrect.

You should have done
./configure && make depend && make && make install

As a test, you should run notepad, so it will be wine notepad. I would not install winetools if the command wine notepad has problems loading up.

I had a document when i ran Redhat 9 about wine, i think the problem was the same as this.....i will try and find it but what i can tell you is that it's a kernel threading problem because of the 2.6 kernel on Redhat 9..
