Unless I'm badly mistaken, I believe the patch you downloaded is for source code. In other words, you download the wine source, apply the patch using patch (big surprise there), and then compile and install the software the way you would expect.

Aw damn.
I don't wanna recompile Wine.

Maybe you can help me though.
Alright, so I installed Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas using a DVD (mounted from ISO >.>). The install went perfectly. Then I try to run it (nocd patch, sue me) and it gives me a blank white screen, which flashes twice, goes black, goes the white screen and my wireless icon (system tray). Then whenever I press "Enter" or click anywhere, it crashes. My Wine log is this:

I've had very limited success using wine, although the first thing I'd recommend you try is running winecfg and playing with some of the settings there. Also, test that wine is setup correctly by running notepad before trying to run a full-blown game.

I've been using Wine for some time now, and I've been messing with winecfg.

I guess the best I can do is to mess around a bit more.

Updates:

I actually got DirectX 9.0 installed under Wine, and I can now play the opening cutscene to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

However, if I click, press enter, or wait for it to end, it crashes back to my desktop.

Any help?

I used sudo apt-get install wine to install Wine, so technically shouldn't I have the most updated version?

Thanks.

Haha, I used Wine-Doors to install it. It was quite easy.

And I abandoned my whole GTA obsession under WINE.

I'd still like a good Sandbox game however.
