[EN] [Solved] Wine installation
« on: 2013/09/23, 09:40:09 »
Hello to all!

What is the proper procedure of installing Wine on a 64bit system?


dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install wine:i386


apt-get install wine-bin:i386


apt-get install wine-unstable:i386

I see that wine candidate is 1.4.1-4 while wine-unstable candidate is 1.5.14-1

I know that there are some dependency conflicts between them.

Free speech isn't just fucking saying what you want to say, it's also hearing what you don't want to fucking hear

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

piper, thank you for your advice!

At first, I installed wine-unstable:i386. After all, it is version 1.5.30
while on the other hand, wine:i386 is only 1.4.1.
Everything ok, exept from winetricks. When I tried to install it, it said
it would uninstall wine-unstable:i386 and install wine-unstable. We don't want that!
Instead, I downloaded it (wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks)
but it could not recognize my wineprefix. So, I uninstalled wine-unstable:i386 completely.

Then I tried with wine:i386 and it was installed fine. I had the same problem with the native installation of winetricks (it would uninstall wine:i386 and install wine) but the downloadable file works ok this time!
It recognizes the default wineprefix. So, it's working now. I will set this thread to [Solved].

while this thread is already solved, i'd like to hint at the "playonlinux" package that uses wine but automates some configuration and installation processes, for a more hassle free experience
