After spending the last week messing with wine builds,
I'm still getting nowhere. All available Mandrake binaries
go into spin-forever mode in winereal, with no indication
(even in winedbg) of what's chewing up the cycles. Trying
to build from source, the configure script complains that
I don't have the xpm and cups development libraries, but
they're there plain as day and I've even set the X-include
path to point to the xpl headers.
Getting Wine to work -- or at least COMPILE, for crying out
loud! -- on Mandrake shouldn't be this ugly. I've used it
in earlier incarnations and although it wasn't perfect it
Suggestions on finding what it's complaining about?
