    Tried compiling wine, didn't work


    I downloaded wine ages ago, i think its like wine-2005something, anyway it took like 2 and a half hours and after it stopped compiling. It said "Syntax error before BerElement" i had no idea what this meant, it did it about 4 times. then said comiling aborted. I thought maybe it will still work so i just went make install. Now it's installed when i open it it says

    Error while loading shared libraries libwine.so.1
    No file or directory

    i just got that from memory, it's something along the lines of that, How do i get this working, if you could help i would be grateful

    if i recall correctly, slackware has a package management program called "slapt-get" or something along those lines... if you know how to use it, then i think you should be able to get wine through that.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    cd to the source directory and try (as root):
    Code:
    make uninstall
    It may work but it depends on the program.

    It is wherever you decompressed the source code. It is the directory where you did the './configure'

    No, you just deleted the source. The binaries are still installed on your computer.

    Have you tried installing a new version since?
