Installation instructions of wine-devel with brew are incorrect

Post by mterrisse » Mon Oct 26, 2020 4:49 am

Hello,

On https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS you can read how to install wine with brew on macOS.
It suggests to do
brew cask install --no-quarantine (selected wine package)
where the wine package can be wine-stable, wine-devel or wine-staging.
But this is wrong, you can't install wine-devel this way.
You need to do
brew tap homebrew/cask-versions
brew install homebrew/cask-versions/wine-devel

I checked and your correct seems brew no longer auto taps homebrew/cask-versions, I added this step and now wine-devel can be installed again.

Once tapped brew cask install wine-devel is found and installs again.
