What should I do to have winegcc and friends?

My distribution's Wine package doesn't include these tools. I wanted to play with Winelib by porting a small Windows program :)

Based on your other post, I assume you are using Rosa Linux.
You have (maybe) three options:
- Ask the maintainer of the Wine package on Rosa Linux if these programs can be added.
- Build Wine yourself
- Is it possible to use the WineHQ packages from Fedora (or an other distribution) on Rosa Linux?

I don't think so. Fedora is using rpm4 with dnf and ROSA is using rpm5 with urpmi.

Please let me know which configure options I should use to have utilities like winegcc and winemaker. Thanks.

By default, these programs are created.
On Debian Sid, I only use the following options:

Code: Select all

--without-hal --without-oss --without-openal
(And because of a bug in the Debian package also --without-vkd3d)
Read the Wiki for more information.

The ready-to-use Wine builds from Lutris also contain winegcc and friends.
Maybe it would be easier to use those.

I’d avoid using Lutris builds if the OP ever wants to get help from any wine developers.

Doesn't urpmi have it? I remember installing these tools in Mandriva before.

Compiling wine creates winegcc and friends by default, just by ./configure and make. But of course you need all the build dependencies and installing them all might be hell.

I am inclined to believe though that urpmi has it, probably under a different package name. Even Debian has it under a different name; installing "apt-get install wine" in Debian does not install winegcc, you need to install it as wine64-tools.
