Wine Installation Problems in RedHat 9


I'm trying to install Wine from source. I got the file at frankscorner.org and followed the instructions at: http://frankscorner.org/modules.php?...rtid=90&page=1

[user@localhost /]$ cd /wine-20030813
[user@localhost wine-20030813]$ ./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Running configure...

./configure: line 88: conf3564.sh: No such file or directory
./configure: line 89: conf3564.sh: No such file or directory
chmod: failed to get attributes of `conf3564.sh': No such file or directory
./configure: line 201: conf3564.file: No such file or directory
./configure: line 949: config.log: No such file or directory

Configure failed, aborting install.
[user@localhost wine-20030813]$

What am I doing wrong here?

Before you install Wine make sure there is no previous Wine installation on your system.
Many Linux distributions come with a Wine package, but this is usually a very old and sometimes a broken version, so it is better to uninstall the old version and install a newer one.

Installation
Extract the downloaded file: tar zxvf Wine-yyyymmdd.tar.gz
This will create a new directory, enter this directory.
Now type ./tools/wineinstall
Wine will now install
After installing Wine the installer creates a Wine configuration in ~/.wine/config and a fake Windows directory will be created in ~/c.
You also need a registry. Type regedit winedefault.reg in the Wine source directory to create one.

After this copy the following files from wine-yyyymmdd/documentation/samples to $HOME/.wine/Windows:
system.ini and win.ini

You can also download a fake windows drive and a wine config file:
fake windows drive
wine config
Untar both files in your home directory. You will now have a fake windows drive in ~/c and the wine config in ~/.wine.

The Wine configuration file

The config file is pretty self explanatory, just take a look at it. The only thing you probably have to change is the mountpoint of the cdrom drive.
You can get more information by typing man wine.conf
The rpm file installed without any problems and I am now at the . Type regedit winedefault.reg in the Wine source directory to create one. part of the tutorial. Here's what I get:

[root@localhost wine]# regedit winedefault.reg
Could not stat /mnt/floppy (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
regedit: Can't open file "winedefault.reg"
[root@localhost wine]#

What am I doing wrong?

I'm running it as root. What directory should I check wine at under root?

well you don't run wine as root, so you don't check for a folder under root....run it as a normal user...but if you insist, it will be /root/.wine as opposed to /home/USER/.wine

I tried regedit on ./wine but here's what I got

[root@localhost root]# cd /root/.wine
[root@localhost .wine]# regedit winedefault.reg
Could not stat /mnt/floppy (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
regedit: Can't open file "winedefault.reg"
[root@localhost .wine]#

here's what's inside the ./wine folder:

/c
config
system.reg
userdef.reg
user.reg

I haven't tried winetools yet.
