Wine : temp folder in drive_c is important

I got the error when using wine in Slackware 12.2. Before that i upgraded from 12.1. Accidentally the library for wine was deleted. But the wine it self still remain.
This is what the computer missed in /usr/lib

libwine.so.1

Then I search into another directory who knows there is a real library located somewhere else and yes I found it in /usr/local/lib/ so I just made connection (link) to /usr/lib

#sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libwine.so.1 /usr/lib/libwine.so.1

Another problem occured, The wine still won’t work. Something lacked here but I don’t know why. The error message said something like temp directory.
So in crazy thought I checked to

/home/user/.wine/drive_c/

and found out the temp directory didn’t exist.

So I just add the directory temp right there.

#cd /home/user/.wine/drive_c
#mkdir temp

And the wine run well again. So the temp directory is important.
