    Exclamation Compiling wine from source help please

    Hello I was wondering if anyone here could help me compile wine from source the correct way on Opensuse 12.1 The only reason I compile from source is because the one game i play WoW requires a patch to run right around the performance of windows. This is how it looks on the web:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep wine1.5
    apt-get source wine 1.5
    cd wine1.5-1.5.4
    patch -p1 < ../rgl.patch
    ./configure --enable-win64
    make
    How can I make that work on here and correctly? Thanks for your time.

    openSUSE does not use apt-get. It is RPM based and uses zyper.

    Apt-get is for Debian-based systems, and there is no "build-dep" package on openSUSE.

    You will have to install the build dependencies manually. There's a list of some of them here and another list here. The latter also mentions some symlinks that need to be created on openSUSE 11.x; I don't know if they're also needed on 12.1 (I'm still on 11.4). Beyond that, run ./configure and install anything it complains about. If if complains about not finding something you're sure you installed, you probably need to create a symlink.

    The instructions for creating a shared WoW64 setup that I linked you to in my response to your post on the Wine forum assume building from git, not a tarball. Instructions for using git are here. Apply the patch, then follow the instructions under "Building a shared WoW64 setup (most likely what you want)" on Wine64 - The Official Wine Wiki. Though I have to say, unless you are using a 64 bit app, there is no need to compile 64 bit Wine at all. It's much easier to just build 32 bit Wine.

    build-dep is no package on Debian but a command option which is roughly
    equivalent to the zypper command switch "si -d" which installs build
    dependencies for a source build.

    Code:
    zypper si -d wine
    is hence the equivalent for openSUSE pulling in the dependencies to
    build wine.

    I forgot to add a piece of information for wine 1.5. It is in the wine
    repository
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_12.1/
    so one should add that repo to get the build dependencies for 1.5 and
    not the build dependencies for 1.4 which is in the default repositories.
