i'm a complete beginner to lInux in general and specifically DSL. I've managed to actually get DSL to work properly and i think i'm starting to get the hang of this cool OS. However, i really want to get starcraft to play and i have NO idea at all as to how to go about it. I've downloaded the file for WINE from sourceforge, but the directions in the readme arent working. i try to open the wineinstaller and it tells me:

"configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH"

if anyone could please help me fix this or install it another way  and any other pointers that i need to know about running starcraft i would be eternally grateful  :D  

Thank You

apt-get install wine

if you have not restored dpkg, you will need to do that first.

Apps >> tools >> enable apt

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~

thank you for replying so quickly. i tried your suggestion but now i seem to be having trouble with "apt-get install wine" after i typed it in this is what it told me:

root@box:~# apt-get install wine
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 wine: Depends: debconf but it is not going to be installed
       Depends: libwine (= 0.0.20020411-1) but it is not going to be installed
       Depends: xbase-clients (>= 4.0) but it is not going to be installed or
E: Broken packages

As i mentioned earlier, a i am a COMPLETE noob and i have no idea what to make of any of this. (this is my first experience with Linux and I'm surprised that i made it this far!!) please help me out and tell me where i went wrong.

Thanks again for your time and knowledge!

P.S. any tips on what to do after i get wine to work and how to install starcraft would be greatly appreciated too . Thanks!!! :;):

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list --> change oldstable to stable.
