wine 1.2 upgrade?


I was asked to upgrade to wine 1.2 but it doesn't seem to be in the cetos/epel repos, they only have 1.0.1 versions.

ANy ideas on where I can get this from?

Also, do I need to copy the old .wine folder and copy it back after or do I need to rinatll Windows software from it after the upgrade?

You can download the latest sources from http://www.winehq.org

Uninstall your existing packages (RPMs?) and build the new copy from source. It takes a while, so bring a magazine or something . . . hehe

After the new binaries are installed, they will automatically update your .wine folders on the first run. There's no need to mess with your .wine folders.

The download is called wine-1.2.tar.bz2 . . . move it into /usr/src

Then, execute the following commands as root:
Code:
tar xvjf wine-1.2.tar.bz2
rm wine-1.2.tar.bz2
cd wine-1.2
./configure
make
make install

You can back up your ~/.wine/drive_c (or is it c_drive?) directory if you're worried about losing your Windows programs.

I am not sure . . . this would seem to be a very undesirable functionality if so. Nonetheless, if you are worries, just do this:
Code:
cd ~;mv .wine .wine-backup
Then, do your uninstall, and then just . . .
Code:
cd ~;mv .wine-backup .wine

Here's the correct link:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w...ne-1.2.tar.bz2

. . .

[root wine-1.2]# flex --version
flex version 2.5.4
[root wine-1.2]#
Are you on a 32 or 64 bit distribution . . . the libraries it is looking for are your 32-bit compatibility versions if your're running 64-bit.
