Can't uninstall wine


Hi everyone,

I'm trying to uninstall an old version of Wine so I can install the newest release but when I run "make uninstall", I get this error:

update-desktop-database
make: update-desktop-database: Program not found
make: [uninstall] Error 127 (no changes)

I am running this as root from the /usr/src/wine-20040813/tools directory.

Any ideas?

It's a known bug in Wine. Try running "make -k" to by pass it.

When I type make -k, nothing happens. I get this:

make[1]: Nothing to do for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/wine-20040813/tools/widl'

After, I typed make uninstall and I get the same error.

by the way, when you build your new one, you might want to try out checkinstall. Instead of running "make install" run "checkinstall" and it will make an rpm for you so uninstallations will be easier and you don't have to keep the src directory around. ( I have never used this on an rpm based distro before so I cannot vouch to how good it does on them, but It works great with slack and debian based)

When I type that, it does the exact same thing as "make uninstall"

then try make -k uninstall and see if that helps

Since your previous install was just from 08/04, you'll probably just have to overwrite it with the new install.
