I've been trying various ways of getting wine running on my 64 bit
ubuntu machine.  So far I haven't been very successful.  I am trying
the source for 0.9.20 and I'm using the latest k8 kernel in ubuntu. 
I have  an nvidia card and am using the latest glx drivers available
in ubuntu (1.0.8762).

I am using the guide here:

with help from here:

and I used the dapper.sh script from here to install libraries:

I managed to build a version of wine which looked like it was

configure: WARNING: No OpenGL library found on this system.

I'm new to all this and completely baffled.  Are there no OpenGL

checking for GL/glu.h... yes
checking for up-to-date OpenGL version... yes
checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... no
checking for gluLookAt in -lGLU... yes
checking for glutMainLoop in -lglut... no

So, am I close?  Or should I give up this method and try one of the

I had one unsuccessful attempt using this:

Like a lot of other people I'm trying to get WoW running - I've seen
it already on a 386 kernel and was amazed at how well it works.
