296. Building Wine 1.5.19 on Debian (Wheezy/Testing) without errors

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

This time we'll be cheating and using the carbon-dev.org debian rules to build wine 1.5.19, which works amazingly well with a tiny bit of editing. In spite of what it looks like, this build is easy.

This is also my first encounter with multiarch since libgsm was causing issues (think it's moved out of ia32). Ultimately, multiarch will be the proper way to build 32-bit wine anyway, but I'll deal with that some other day.

Interesting fact: if you try to build with ... 1>build.log 2> build.err the build will fail since files are changing in the main directory during build. Make sure that you do e.g. .. 1> ../build.log 2> ../build.err if you want to track the build.

Finally, I've also built wine 1.5.18 this way, in addition to wine 1.5.19.

The build starts here:

Here's my current best guess at dependencies (Note that multiarch on ubuntu is a little bit different from Debian.):
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
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 libxkbfile-dev libxxf86dga-dev freeglut3-dev unixodbc-dev gcc-multilib
sudo apt-get install libgsm1:i386

Once you've got that sorted, it is time to download the sources:
mkdir -p ~/tmp/wine_1.5.19_carbon/
cd ~/tmp/wine_1.5.19_carbon/
wget http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/wine/source/1.5/wine-1.5.19.tar.bz2 -O wine-unstable_1.5.19.orig.tar.bz2
tar xvf wine-unstable_1.5.19.orig.tar.bz2
cd wine-1.5.19/
wget http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/wine-unstable_1.5.5-0.1.debian.tar.bz2
tar xvf wine-unstable_1.5.5-0.1.debian.tar.bz2
rm wine-unstable_1.5.5-0.1.debian.tar.bz2

We could do the editing the proper way, or the quick way. Since I'm not really that familiar with build debian packages the right way (I cheat using checkinstall) we're doing this the quick and dirty way:
sed -i 's/1.5.5/1.5.19/g' debian/changelog
sed -i 's/\-4.5//g' debian/rules
sed -i 's/\-4.5//g' debian/control
sed -i 's/\-4.5//g' debian/control.in

Next, edit debian/patches/series and change it from
  1 debian-changes-from-1.1.32-1.patch
  2 readd_xpm.patch
  3 function_grep.patch
  4 Bug#29669_proposed-fix.patch
  5 fix-winegcc-paths.patch
  6 Bug#28898_squashed-proposed-patches.patch
  7 Bug#28201_proposed-fix-modified.patch
  1 debian-changes-from-1.1.32-1.patch
  2 readd_xpm.patch
  3 function_grep.patch

And build:
time dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us

The entire build takes about 40 minutes and gives the following files:

To install,
cd ../
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

And you're done.
To confirm what version you're using (and get a screenshot like above) do
and click on 'about'.

  1. good info but you might want to correct / add edit a couple of things for the people less versed in cli wizardry

    wheezy 64bit ?

    Package ia32-libs-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    lib32z1-dev lib32bz2-dev

    Package opencl-dev is a virtual package provided by:
    nvidia-opencl-dev 4.2.9-1
    amd-opencl-dev 1:12-6+point-1
    ocl-icd-opencl-dev 1.3-3
    You should explicitly select one to install.

    E: Package 'ia32-libs-dev' has no installation candidate
    E: Package 'opencl-dev' has no installation candidate
    E: Unable to locate package lib32opencl1


    1. Cheers for the suggestions. Seems like ia32-libs-dev is on its way out due to the switch to multiarch. I'll update once I've had a chance to rebuild wine on a fresh install.

    2. I've posted an updated build now: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/308-compiling-wine-1521-on-debian.html

      I think the build above will work if you just omitt ia32-libs-dev and just pick whatever opencl package is relevant to your system, as indicated by the message above.

      But you're even better of just follow the updated build.
