Wine on Xebian Sarge


I've got a (soft) modded xbox and I wish to run the newest version of wine on the kernel that came with Xebian 1.1.4. I've tried doing a kernel upgrade several times, so I've decided that I will have to deal with 2.4. The exact problem I'm having is that wineHQ does not have .deb files for sarge, and the newer ones will not install correctly. Also, when I try to build the development version from source, it takes up over 1.7GiB to build which is more than I have on my ext3 partition on my xbox (10GB drive, the partition above 8GB).

So to get around that I've got my 8GB usb flash drive hooked up to build it on, and it is excruciatingly slow (not just because it's a flash disk, it's also usb 1.1). Also, it was running out of memory on package.c so I plugged in my older 1GB usb drive and added it as swap space, which is also terribly slow. It is currently using 577MB of swap space and has been building package.c for about an hour and a half.

Is there a better way to go about this, besides just sticking with the old version in the sarge repositories? Because I couldn't get the old version to work with graphics. >.>

Thanks to anyone who can help,

EDIT:Hehe... as I posted this it finished package.c, but still, it's VERY slow.

I managed to find the backports.org folder in the debian archive, so I've got 0.9.25 working. New enough. =D

Erp... it's not running properly, probably because it wasn't built for this environment. =/

I'd forgotten about apt-get build-dep wine, so I've run that and now have nearly all of the required and recommended packages for building wine. Guess I'll give it another 6 hour go...

wine: glibc >= 2.3 without NPTL/TLS is not a supported combination.
Sigh, does anyone know the latest version of wine that does not require NPTL in the kernel? Recompiling the kernel or GCC is not a possibility at this point.

Also, I think that I will have to remove the build-dep packages in order to fit wine on the drive, and I don't know how to do this.

I require specific help now. =(
