    I'm not able to install Wine


    Okay i'm relatively new to Linux, I'm using ubuntu.

    now onto the problem. I go to install wine, and I get all of these "checking for ??? - no" you can see how many here http://img116.imageshack.us/img116/2...eenshot2ob.png

    and at the end of that it says "No suitable lex found, please install the 'flex' package"

    I go to install the flex package and I get this message http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/7...enshot12ft.png

    this is annoying It does this pretty much any time I try to install something.

    please leave me some information

    instead of compiling from source, try installing the binary packages with these instructions
