#2353 closed enhancement (wontfix)

New package: wine

Reported by: Reece Dunn Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone: x-future
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


package: wine


category: x/windows

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.)

version: 0.9.37


required dependencies: xorg

description: A port of the Windows API to Linux, allowing Linux desktops to run native Windows applications.


    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make install

alternative (if you want to have multiple Wine installations):

    ./configure --prefix=/opt/wine-0.9.37
    make install
    ln -sv /opt/wine-0.9.37/bin/wine /usr/bin/wine

To run a Windows application (e.g. regedit):

    wine 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.

New wine requires FontForge, will utitilze the MS Corefonts and configuration is much easier and different now using winecfg. Add esd to audio options.
