/sbin/modprobe binfmt_misc

if you configured binfmt_misc as a module.  If in <linux>/.config you

you will have to learn how to run wine by hand with this kernel:

wine <options> blah.exe

Or of course re-configure and rebuild the kernel.  Change the value of
EXTRAVERSION in the toplevel Makefile first, please.  It will save you a
lot of confusion if you keep the module structure separate for different
configurations of the same kernel version.

When you build your own kernel, you are responsible to configure the
