WINE won't install


I am using ThizLinux 8.0 and I can't get WINE installed. I don't know how to use the apt-get command correctly. The commands in the readme don't even work like they are supposed to.

HELP .

Hi!

If you want to search by keyword for a specific package type:
Code:
apt-cache search (packagename)
to install use:
Code:
apt-get install (packagename)
in your case:
Code:
apt-get install wine

It doesn't matter what folder you're in... just type that in as root.
In your case:

su -c "apt-get install wine"

and then enter your root password (if you're not already running as root)

Anywhere in the filesystem, just make sure you're root!

I have the gcc thing and I need to compile, build, and install it to ThizLinux and I can't figure it out. The read me makes no since at all. GCC 3.4.4 . Does anyone know of something else I could use like cc the $PATH specifies since it says NO to everything.


I can't run the install as root. It says its not advisable. I run it as user with the command ./tools/wineinstall since I figure out why it wasn't working in the first place.
