View Full Version : Where's the Wine 0.9.35
15th April 2007, 09:01 PM
The standard yum respositories (default and linva) still have 0.9.32 as their latest version. It's been almost a month since the Wine package was last updated. I mean I appreciate a free service, but I just want to know if I'm going to have to compile it myself or what. I'd rather use an RPM and save myself from having to download a dozen devel libraries I'll only use once, with some abstract compiler. That's what I love FC for.
Anyone know what's up with the Wine maintainer?
(Edit: See bottom for resolution/answer.)

Probably the latest version will not come to Fedora 6. I am not sure why they do this, but they make you updgrade to lates distro (which is about to be 7) to get the latest software. Take Banshee, firefox and amsn for example. However, you can install these by enabling the 'development' repo in yum - which is essentially fedora 7 repos. But, I would ONLY update a few packages this way, as it could mess up your system.

I had a simil;ar question once.
The short of it, is that you can make a request through Bugzilla.

well i suppose i'll file a 'bug' if the devel option doesnt work. is there a way to run yum with the devel repo enabled just once? haven't ever used that option so i wouldn't know

nevermind, i figured it out. i dont even know why i asked, haha.
too bad pirut doesn't have an option for enabling the devel repo.

if you use yumex instead of pirut (yum install yumex) then you can click to add any repos you want easily.

hmm, that's a nice little tool.
while there were an overwhelming ammount of updates for FC7, wine was not included among them. so I emailed the package maintainer in hopes that he might have some answers. i'll post back here when and if he replies.

Good news. The delays in the update 0.9.33 through 0.9.35 were due to some fedora specific bugs that have since been worked out (as of today it seems). This means that we can expect to see the update in the repos very soon, since it will sent out tomorrow from the maintainer, barring any random hang-ups.

I simply compiled it and it works. WineTools however does not work with my compiled version. It claims wine is not installed. How to make winetools work?
[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -Uvh winetools-0.9-*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
wine is needed by winetools-0.9-3jo.i386
[root@localhost Desktop]# wine --version
[root@localhost Desktop]# wine
Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...] Run the specified program
wine --help Display this help and exit
wine --version Output version information and exit

Use winebot which helps.

The folks at openSUSE are kind enough to provide single-rpms for Fedora users :) .
You can find them here; for me, on stock FC5, the builds are working perfectly.
Kudos to them,
