When will Wine be updated in Debian testing?

Postby shmerl » 2010-10-31 01:12

Debian testing still ships Wine 1.0.1. Are there any plans to update it to the recent release version?

Testing is in freeze, so there will be no version updates until the release. And even after that, there will not be the latest version, I think, currently there is no newer version than 1.1.24 in the Debian repositories.

You mean testing will start moving forward when Squeeze will be officially released?

AFAIK new WINE versions aren't quite compatible with testing kernel anyway.

Even the wine package in the experimental repo is only a little newer than the current wine stable release. If you want the latest wine you will always have to get the current 1.3.x development release from winehq.

Wrong.

I have compiled a stable Wine version 1.2.1 when it was released and I'm using it without issues. I also use their development branch @work without problems.

So, if you want I can upload it somewhere. It's for 32-bit system btw.

Or Brooko's development builds for the (mostly) Lenny-based Mepis 8.5 should run fine on Squeeze. Not sure if you need to remove all libwine packages first, or if his single .deb build can upgrade gracefully and remove them.

What is your actual use of it? I've never said it will not compile. It's there, it seems to work. But when you play 3D games sometimes (sooner than later) it just dies. With the whole system. All I have is "No signal" until I reboot. It does not happen with versions <= 1.1.31.

Unless you've tested the same version with a newer kernel and found this not to be the case, then perhaps this would suggest that something is broken in the latest beta?

It happens in all later WINE versions. Not only 1.2. I haven't tested it yet (as 1.1.31 was somewhat enough for my purposes), but I heard developers said something like that. Well, there could be misunderstanding on my part.

2Tenno Seremel:

Sorry, buddy, I do not play games under wine, I use it for my work (just one small interbank client program).

Gaming under wine, especially when DirectX is involved is almost always, glitchy, buggy and unstable. I've had limited success in the past with a few games, but all in all, it's mostly just not worth the effort (for me anyway).
