    Unhappy problems in installing wine 1.2.2 on ubuntu 10.10


    Hello everyone. Am new to this forum and need some help.
    Was installing wine 1.2.2 on ubuntu 10.10
    my home folder had 60GB of free space before the installation started
    I chose to install manually.
    I installed all the dependencies manually from terminal. Then compiled wine 1.2.2 from the source code using
    ./configue
    make
    While running the 'make' process my 60GB home folder ran out of disk space. The make process was non ending. Ultimately it got aborted due to lack of space.
    Can't retrieve disk space that was lost since then. Tried with terminal commands like
    apt-get clean
    apt-get autoclean
    apt-get autoremove
    Even tried to get into the wine source folder from terminal and use 'make uninstall'
    Nothing works and I now have only 50Mb of disk space on my home folder

    Please help me
    Thanks to all in advance.......

    Well, now that you have fallen off of the cliff, I have to ask the question. Why in the heck did you try to build wine (and all dependencies) from source code? It should have been unnecessary. The Synaptic and apt-get/aptitude package managers show that the current Wine version available for Ubuntu 10.10 is 1.2.2, as it is for RHEL 6...

    Unhappy

    Thanks Rubberman.........
    I actually installed all the wine dependencies using apt-get
    I had previously downloaded a wine 1.2.2 tar.bz2 from wineHQ site.
    I compiled from that package and then the problem occured that I mentioned of in my first thread post
    Problem still persists.........
    Do you know where Ubuntu stores the files when I run the 'make' process from the Terminal?
    If yes does anybody know how to erase that data................?????


    Thanks in Advance.....

    Until you run "make install", the files are (or really should be) in the local build directory tree, where you were when you ran 'make'.
