Thread: Wine with openSUSE 12.1/11.4

  1. #1

    Default Wine with openSUSE 12.1/11.4

    I have a Windows application which is a must have app (I use it every day). It works fine in openSUSE 11.4 with Wine (and versions before 11.4) but fails to load in openSUSE 12.1 with Wine. The only difference between my installs is that 11.4 (and earlier) were installed from a DVD, whereas 12.1 was installed from the Live CD.

    Is it possible to downgrade my Wine to the one in openSUSE 11.4? How to do this? Can I just copy my wine from 11.4 to 12.1? Which folders do I need to copy?

    Any help would be appreciated. It's stopping me from upgrading to 12.1

    Perhaps if you describe how it fails, someone might be able to help
    determine what the problem is and address that, rather than trying to
    downgrade. WINE is one of those programs that tends to add compatibility
    rather than take it away as it progresses.

    You could also try the Wine repo, which is what I had to do.
    Unfortunately they decided to switch the wine version during the later stages of development in 12.1 (and we ended up with a turd version)

    Good advice Carl. I like the way you put that

    Trying to load the program I immediately get the message "The program has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." appears in a Wine Program Error Window. Closing that closes the program.

    What is the address of the Wine Repo?

    OK. I found the wine repo. Actually I already had it installed. I also added the wine repo for 11.4. So I now have two wine repos, 12.1 and 11.4. the 12.1 wine repo only offers me the current (1.3.30-2.1.2 turd) version. It doesn't offer me any other versions. (Am I missing something). When I disable 12.1 enabled/autorefresh and enable the same on 11.4, I still only get the turd version. I refreshed the repos. So I guess I've missed a step. What is "the switcher" and how do I use it to switch to the 11.4 repo, so I can downgrade my wine installation? Or if there is an earlier 12.1 wine repo version that works, I'd use that. Do I need to remove my installed wine first?

    This is the address for the 12.1 wine repo: Index of /repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_12.1
    Just substitute 11.4 for 12.1 for the earlier repo.

    OK I deinstalled wine. When trying to reinstall, I'm offered version 1.3.33-1.1 but when I try to install it I get a warning that libgnutls.so.26()(64bit) is required for this version. Where do I get that from? I have libgnutls28 installed.

    Remove thee wine repo
    Be careful, but try and add wine by using the 11.4 OSS repo
    You may have to roll back the package that supplies libgnutls.so so as to get v26

    This is a process you need some experience to undertake. I'm busy right now, otherwise I'd walk you through it.
