First, install the needed dependencies using:
apt-get build-dep wine
Then, get the source code for the latest Wine version from the official website. Uncompress it, change the current working directory to the wine source directory and issue the command:
If the source configures properly you'll get a message similar to the one below:
configure: Finished. Do 'make depend && make' to compile Wine.
We need to install wine as root user, do you want us to build wine,
'su root' and install Wine? Enter 'no' to continue without installing
Type yes, wait for Wine to be compiled, then enter your root password and install Wine. After Wine gets installed, run winecfg in order to configure it, then use it as wine win_application.exe in order to run Windows programs.
