View Full Version : Error compiling Wine 0.9 beta

October 25th, 2005, 06:49 PM
Hi, I was trying to compile the latest and greates Wine release which promises lots of good stuff, because the repositories are kind off outdated.

I resolved all the problems configure had with my install but it was during compilation that it errored:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
winegcc: gcc failed.

I've searched the forums but I could only find one reference to someone adding -lXext via makedefs or something but didn't explain it. If I knew what those were I might be able to fix it, but now I'm stranded. (if you need anymore info just tell me).

Thank in advance!

not sure, but try updating automake to a new version.

Look here (http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb) if you would like to use apt to get wine directly from winehq. It seems to work well for me so far.
