Ubuntu: How to compile wine



Question:

I am a Wine PPA user for Scott Ritchie for several years and have loved that PPA but I want to start compiling Wine for testing purposes in another PC with Ubuntu.

So I have a couple of questions regarding this:

What special flags or steps are needed to compile Wine on Ubuntu?

How to include the pulseaudio code to Wine to solve any sound issues in the process?


Solution:1

No special flags are needed, really. Audio is supported out-of-the-box.


Here are the commands you'll need to run to get Wine up and running, straight from the source.

sudo -s  cd /tmp  wget http://winezeug.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/install-wine-deps.sh  sh install-wine-deps.sh  wget http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/wine/source/1.5/wine-1.5.9.tar.bz2  tar xjvf wine-1.5.9.tar.bz2  cd wine-1.5.9/  ./configure  make  make install  

Here's what the commands actually do:

  • Drop to a root shell
  • Go to the temp folder
  • Download the Wine dependency installer script
  • Run the Wine dependency installer script
  • Download the Wine source
  • Extract the Wine source
  • Enter the Wine source directory
  • Run the configuration script
  • Compile Wine
  • Install Wine

Note: Don't do this on an actively used server with insufficient ressources.. This slowed my Nagios server to a crawl! :)
