Wine unable to open display.

Hello everyone,

I have downloaded and compiled wine-20030508 successfully. Unfortunately, I 
seem to have stumbled on a problem at the configuration stage.

I first complied and installed wine as the root user (./configure ; make dep 
; make ; make install ... or so).

As my regular user, I started wineserver -p and ran tools/wineinstall. I 
selected a windows-less install (I don't have win9x libs at hand right now). 
Wineinstall failed at the registry setup stage:

Warning: L"/usr/src/local/wine-20030508/programs/regedit/" not 
accessible from a configured DOS drive

I ended creating the registry myself:

regedit ~/.wine/winedefault.reg

At this point, running winecheck reports:

26 tests. 2 suspicious, 0 bad, 0 critical, 0 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 99.00%

However, trying to run the simplest windows app fails with an error saying:

XIO:  fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
      after 180 requests (178 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

What am I doing wrong? I am trying to install on redhat9, if that 
information matters.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
