Unhappy Wine trip


I'm using Red Hat Enterprise 5.1
I've downloaded wine and extracted it
./configure was OK.
Then I entered make command, then it started its work.
But it is not stopping.
It became 12 hours but also it is genereting texts in terminal.
When does make command will finish its work?
Is it normal, or I'm only having this problem?

for red hat i would use the prebuilt wine rpm.
Code:
yum install wine
providing you have enabled the RH 3d party repos. see the redhat docs for that and/or talk to your ( paid for $$$)tech support .

I would use binary RPMs. I am sure you can find them.

If you really plan to compile it, we need to know your hardware a bit to be able to give you an average aproximation (and even then, there are lots of things that can influence the speed of the compilation: cpu speed, background jobs, available ram, average amount of swapping to disk, CFLAGS, version of the compiler, and the list goes on).

In any machine above the gigahertz it should take less than half an hour if the box is iddle and there's enough ram. In machines of previous generations it can take one hour or many depending on the hardware and many things. Wine needs massive amount of ram to compile, if there's not enough ram and it starts swapping to disk the performance will degrade by many order of magnitude.

Talking searching uninstalling process for experimentally installed wine

I'm searching uninstalling process for experimentally installed wine

I've downloaded the following files:

wine-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-capi-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-cms-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-core-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-desktop-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-devel-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-docs-1.0-1.el5.noarch.rpm
wine-esd-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm]
wine-jack-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-ldap-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-nas-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-tools-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
wine-twain-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm

then I did this to install wine:
yum install wine
but didn't work.

then I did:
rpm -i wine-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm
but it said that it needs the other files (i.e. the other files except wine-1.0-1.el5.i386.rpm that I've downloaded)

then I did:
rpm -i *.*

then it installed wine

Now I want to uninstall wine. But How?

i take it you did not install the epel repo first
see http://developer.redhatmagazine.com/...prise-linux-5/
Code:
su -
( your root pass)
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-2.noarch.rpm"
yum install wine
