Please help me .. :(
The initial messages should have been a clue. It states that wine will
most likely crash and that you need a glibc library with NPTL.

Your distro does not support the necessary threading libraries (NPTL).
A quick look at the slackware release notes suggests that depending on
what kernel you are running you may not be using the glibc with nptl
support compiled in.

http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackware-11.0/README.NPTL

I suggest posting on the slackware user mailing list, because until you
are using the NPTL version of glibc and can confirm it, it is very
unlikely that wine or any other application that NEEDS NPTL will work.
