New package: wine
|Reported by:||Reece Dunn||Owned by:|
proposed BLFS category: chapter 26 - X libraries (This is my best guess, I'll leave the actual place this goes in up to the editor assigned to this ticket.)
required dependencies: xorg
description: A port of the Windows API to Linux, allowing Linux desktops to run native Windows applications.
./configure --prefix=/usr make make install
alternative (if you want to have multiple Wine installations):
./configure --prefix=/opt/wine-0.9.37 make make install ln -sv /opt/wine-0.9.37/bin/wine /usr/bin/wine
To run a Windows application (e.g. regedit):
NOTE: other dependencies are needed for additional features (e.g. OSS or ALSA for sound; MesaGL when building with xorg 7.x for OpenGL/Direct3D support). I haven't yet identified all the non-essential dependencies.
NOTE: I have successfully built Wine and ran Windows applications using xorg 6.9.0.
NOTE: Using TWM or another Window Manager that uses the mouse over to change the focus behaviour will cause issues with Wine focusing.
