Wine Install Question

Hi All,
I down loaded (Wine20040121.tar.gz) to my win-2 (D) drive. I was able to move it from there to a home/wine directory. Now where can I find the instructions to install it in MDK 9.1, which man page? Or is there a link on the webwith instructions so I can print out and save in a file folder?

Thanks in advance,

well you will untar it and do :
su -c "make install"

or i think in the tools folder within the wine folder has a script called "wineinstall" which when you run it, it will do basically what is said above, but then after all that is done it will prompt you on where you wanna place your fake windows drive, or if it picks up a windows installation it will ask if you wanna use it instead ...
so outta the two things i outlined its your choice ...

i suggest using the "wineinstall" script

untar wine and cd into the wine directory

from there, type ./tools/wineinstall and follow the instructions

if you intend to try installing opengl-based games, you will probably either want to do a manual wine install (./configure, make, make install, then manually create fake c drive) but the better option is to edit the tools/wineinstall script and add the option


option under configargs (configure arguments); it is near the top

also, choose to do a fake windows install; don't use an existing one
