    Any reason why you wouldn't add the wine repository and use synaptic to install ?

    winehq.org > download > ubuntu > follow the tutorial

    Have you got Flex installed? If you do (it should be installed if you have build-essential?) then you would need to get the latest version of Flex and build that from source.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Re: INstalling Wine

    From the release announcement:

    The source is available now. Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations.
    Why not just wait a couple of days?

    To install flex just run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flex
    Or you could add the WineHQ source repository and then run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep wine
    None but ourselves can free our minds

    Geez man, that's not even a point version difference... it's a point-point version. If you can't find Flex in the repositories, or you can't find its project page and build it, then you're going to struggle to compile Wine and you might as well just wait for the binaries to become available.
