Ok I did some checking and I have the libasound2 package installed but not the libasound2-dev package, could this be the whole problem? Funny, usually if I'm missing something the configure script will warn me at the end that something is missing. But I guess it didnt. I installed the libasound2-dev package via synaptic package manager. You said you have a 32-bit build of Wine 1.1.39? Can you direct me to where I might download that? I would like to re-build and install wine now that I have the correct ALSA package.
