So I just installed linux mint, and I get no sound, I did get sound at first, but not anymore. Let me explain, it worked until I tried to install wine. I typed in ./configure at first, to compile wine from source after downloading version 1.3.37. Whenever it would stop, it would say I'm missing something, for example, missing libxxx, so I would then install it. Well, I got nearly done, but when I tried to do ./configure, there was only one warning, and it said that I don't have any sound drivers installed. And sure enough, I'm not getting any sound at all.

What could be the possible cause of this? is there a way to undo recent package installations?
