Which tarball did you extract, and which directions were you following?

I've had success with the Slackware package downloaded from winehq.org,
and installed with Slackware's installpkg.  I'm going to hazard a guess
that this isn't what you're using.

It sounds like the dynamic loader doesn't know where the libraries are.
Either use the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or adjust your
/etc/ld.so.conf accordingly and run ldconfig.  If you use the
above-mentioned Slackware package you won't need to do either.

I hope this helps ...
