I have uninstalled the rpm for wine.  I have built wine using 
wineinstall from the cvs source.  I have edited psdrv.reg to use the 
generic.ppd and am using lotus notes.  I am able to print to my network 
printer, but I get this at the beginning of my error log:

service "lotusnotes" protocol * not found; You might want to add this to 

  and I am getting a winedb xterm when I tell it to print.  When I quit 
the debugger, my printout prints and I have to kill wine and remove the 
socket file.  Any suggestions on how I should proceed?
