Installing Wine problems

I'm trying to install wine on FC3... i downloaded the rpm package and installed

# rpm -i wine.i386.rpm

came back ok.. but when i just enter wine i get...

root@server1 [~]# wine
wine: creating configuration directory '/root/.wine'...
err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"gdi32.dll": cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
err:module:import_dll Loading library gdi32.dll (which is needed by L"c:\\windows\\system\\user32.dll") failed (error c000007a).
err:module:import_dll Library user32.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\rundll32.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\rundll32.exe" failed, status c0000135

In my exerience I've never gotten a good, satisfactory instllation using a precompiled package. It looks like it's trying to create the . directory but is missing some required stuff. There may also be adependency issue. For Wine, the best (and most sane) option is to compile it from source. Also for Wine, for the Win programs actually, try to find native Linux support or an equivalent first. That will save you a lot of headaches.

Yup... Thanks... I ended up downloading the src and compiling and worked like a charm... Why do they have the rpm's in the first place.
