257. Wine 1.5.15 on debian testing/wheezy --finally sorting out that annoying libjpeg

UPDATE 16 May 2013: See here for Wine 1.5.30: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/416-wine-1530-in-chroot.html

UPDATE (10th Jan 2013): See here for Wine 1.5.21 using the multiarch approach: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/308-compiling-wine-1521-on-debian.html

Pretty much just follow this post:
The big difference here is that it seems to compile ok with libjpeg.

And here are the release notes

Install the pre-requisites 
(haven't checked this list for a while -- there may be a few too many packages)
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-dev bison flex gcc libc6-dev libfontconfig-dev libfreetype6-dev libglu-dev libgsm1-dev libice-dev libjpeg-dev libldap-dev libmpg123-dev libncurses5-dev libopenal-dev libpng-dev libsm-dev libssl-dev libusb-dev libx11-dev libxcomposite-dev libxcursor-dev libxext-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxml2-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libxslt-dev libxt-dev libxxf86vm-dev make libcapi20-dev liblcms-dev libsane-dev libhal-dev libdbus-1-dev valgrind prelink libcups2-dev opencl-dev lib32opencl1 oss4-dev gettext lib32v4l-dev lib32ncurses5-dev lib32asound2-dev libtiff4-dev libgphoto2-2-dev

Get new source:
cd ~/tmp
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Source/wine-1.5.15.tar.bz2
tar xvf wine-1.5.15.tar.bz2
cd wine-1.5.15/

To avoid
configure: WARNING: libjpeg 32-bit development files not found, JPEG won't be supported.

edit /usr/include/jpeglib.h and delete

24   #ifndef JCONFIG_INCLUDED        /* in case jinclude.h already did */
25   #include "jconfig.h"            /* widely used configuration options */
26   #endif

Then do 


which yields

configure: libOSMesa 32-bit development files not found (or too old), OpenGL rendering in bitmaps won't be supported.
configure: OpenCL 32-bit development files not found, OpenCL won't be supported.
configure: gstreamer-0.10 base plugins 32-bit development files not found, gstreamer support disabled
configure: libgsm 32-bit development files not found, gsm 06.10 codec won't be supported.
configure: Finished.  Do 'make' to compile Wine.

Neither of these issues are fatal -- depending on what you use wine for.

Time to install:
sudo checkinstall --install=no
sudo dpkg -i wine-1.5.15-1_amd64.deb

And you're done!


  1. I am getting the same warning as you; "configure: libOSMesa 32-bit development files not found (or too old), OpenGL rendering in bitmaps won't be supported."

    Is there any way around this? I have searched and searched and am stumped. I think this may be necessary for running games (diablo3)...

    1. Seems like this is it:

      The first post contains links to patches -- if you google you'll find patches for other versions (e.g. 1.5.12) but from the discussion it seems like they may not work if you really need libOSMesa (they just suppress the warning I guess).

      The current version of libosmesa in debian is 8.0.4, but version 9 is supposed to be good. I might try compiling that version in a couple of days or so.

  2. I was able to solve it by running 'apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386' as root, after switching to the debian package version of fglrx (instead of using the direct AMD/ATI download)
