7 comments on “Wine 1.4 on Debian Wheezy

  1. hi, for me was:
    # aptitude build-dep wine

    accept corrections

    download and uncompress the tar and cd

    # cd ~/wine.1.4/tools/
    # ./wineinstall
    after half hour and been root
    # make
    # makeinstall

    that was

    • Thanks so much for your comment.

      The aptitude build-dep wine is a good trick, although it does rely on the dependencies of the wine source package in the Debian repositories. Providing the build dependencies haven’t changed, then it should work. It didn’t for me on this occasion, but I can’t remember what errors I had.

      But I notice that you have not used checkinstall – this means that removing the package later is a complete pain. I would recommend you use checkinstall – it intercepts the make install process and converts it into a deb package and then installs that. The beauty of that is that it can be removed later with an apt-get remove, or even upgraded – if you have been careful to get the version numbering and package name correct.

      Thanks again,

    • Further to this, as far as I know there is no Wine source package in Wheezy yet, so I am not sure how the aptitude build-dep wine would work?

  2. Thanks for the guide

    Am having the following problems though:

    sudo apt-get install opencl-dev
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    Package opencl-dev is a virtual package provided by:
    nvidia-opencl-dev 4.2.9-1
    ocl-icd-opencl-dev 1.3-2
    You should explicitly select one to install.
    E: Package ‘opencl-dev’ has no installation candidate

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-opencl-dev 4.2.9-1
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    E: Unable to locate package 4.2.9-1
    E: Couldn’t find any package by regex ‘4.2.9-1′

    Same for ocl-icd-opencl-dev 1.3-2

    (the rest installed fine)

    Skipping this I decided to give it a go all the same but encountered the following error after a few minutes into the installation:

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/wine-1.4/dlls/d3dx10_33’
    config.status: creating dlls/d3dx10_34/Makefile
    awk: ./confi9Tmh7/subs.awk:324: (FILENAME=- FNR=101) fatal: print to “standard output” failed (No space left on device)
    config.status: error: could not create dlls/d3dx10_34/Makefile
    make: *** [dlls/d3dx10_34/__depend__] Error 2

    Any help very welcome


    • I suspect the error “standard output” failed (No space left on device)” is the clue. Check your free disk space with “df”, suspect your file system is full.
