I think there is a chance this patch may fix an install problem I'm having.
But even though I have been using Linux on and off for the last 10 years (when I started, you had to look at the chip on the video card and enter it during the install) I have managed to avoid compiling from source code.

I've looked in the FAQ, Wiki and the "PACKAGING' file in the documentation folder, but I don't see instructions for someone who is trying to compile from source code for the first time.

I know this is second nature to many of you, but not me.
Can some one point me to a source (no pun intended) where I can read up on this - preferably something designed for a first timer?

BTW, I'm running Fedora 9, Kernel and Wine version 1.1.4.

On an earlier post when I first described my problem, which seems similar to this one, someone responded that they were able to install my application using an older version of Wine,  I think 0.9.32. I'd prefer not to go backward if I can help it.
