Okay I compiled Wine1.2.3 from source, with the following flags and such:

sudo apt-get build-dep wine
./configure --enable-win64
sudo make install

Took forever to compile, and it does a bunch of crap (below), but then wine is unrecognized command. There is no ~/.wine directory and nothing in /usr/bin/

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user1/Desktop/wine-1.2.3/tools/wmc'
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/user1/Desktop/wine-1.2.3/tools/wrc'
/usr/bin/install -c  -m 644 /usr/local/share/man/man1/wrc.1
/usr/bin/install -c   wrc-installed /usr/local/bin/wrc
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user1/Desktop/wine-1.2.3/tools/wrc'

could you put the log on pastebin? – Journeyman Geek Oct 24 '11 at 3:26
We need to see the errors. You are showing us all the stuff that succeeded. – David Schwartz Oct 24 '11 at 3:31
I just copy pasted from the shell which was itself cut off too – wutdo Oct 24 '11 at 3:41
the error will be on the last few lines. The current posted log is useless. Also any specific reason to compile from source? – Sathya Oct 24 '11 at 4:15
And the question is? – Ярослав Рахматуллин Mar 14 '13 at 19:29
