286. Briefly: installing the wine 1.5.5 from debs

UPDATE 16 May 2013: See here for Wine 1.5.30:

UPDATE (10th Jan 2013): See here for Wine 1.5.21 using the multiarch approach:

Update: Try this first:
It uses a lot less bandwidth, and involves compiling wine yourself, but using the build instructions from the

Please Note
For bandwidth reasons please don't use this method if you are satisfied with the version you obtain through compiling by following this method:

A long time ago ( I posted three methods for installing Wine on Debian Testing:
1. Use the Squeeze version
2. Get the Wine-unstable build from
3. Compile your own version

I've never managed to build Wine to successfully include OpenCL, gstreamer, or libgsm. Also, there are occasional issues with libjpeg, and I recently have problems with libOSMesa.

So here's an alternative solution for installing a relatively recent version of wine, and it involves no compiling.

Note that it seems that the Wine project uses the traditional way of numbering releases i.e. odd version are development versions i.e. the 1.4 series is stable, the 1.5 series is under development, and the 1.6 series will be the next stable.

Please note what it says on the carbon-dev page:
The amount of traffic this little sub-page generates is quite respectable. If you think this service helpful and want to help cover some of the attached costs, please donate a few Euros, either through PayPal, by flattring this or by donating through Flattr. Thank you! (You can, of course, also donate something, for totally different reasons.)
So at the very least don't download the same packages over and over and keep bandwidth to a minimum.

Anyway, here we go.

0. Clean up
Uninstall any newer version of wine if you've compiled e.g. 1.5.15.
sudo apt-get autoremove wine

1. Download
Get the debs for wine 1.5.5:
cd ~/tmp
mkdir wine-1.5.5
cd wine-1.5.5/
wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A amd64.deb

2. Install
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

112. Kernel 3.3.x on debian testing

Compiling a kernel on debian is easy. Kernel 3.3 came out today, and here's how to build it for debian testing:
sudo apt-get install kernel-package fakeroot
tar -xvf linux-3.3.tar.bz2 
cd linux-3.3/

cat /boot/config-`uname -r`>.config
make oldconfig

EDIT: 3.3.1 is here: -- the build instructions are the same
EDIT 2: This has been tried with 3.3.4 as well. All is fine.
EDIT 3: And it's fine with 3.3.5

You'll also be asked about the new inclusions in the kernel. You can pick the default if you don't know - Yes means to compile into the kernel, m mean to provide as a module and no means don't support. Some drivers are better provided as modules -- see e.g.
"Some things obviously have to be compiled into the kernel - file system support for your / filesys, stuff like that. Most everything else can be modules, if you desire." and "f you hot-swap different usb peripherals then I would recommend compiling those drivers as modules". Same goes for network drivers.

You can also look up the different options here:
Seems like there's a lot of network and touch/screen drivers. And the fabled android drivers are available now:
