How mature is wine 1.3 under ubuntu 10.04?

Post by redss » Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:27 am

The closest thing to wine 1.4 that I'm able to install under Ubuntu 10.04 is wine1.3 dev version. I'm wondering how mature this version is. i.e: how much more was 1.3 version updated before being released as 1.4. Is this a stable version or am I best to stick with 1.2 since 1.4 release is not available for ubuntu 10.04

This is what I have:

Code: Select all

#dpkg-query -W  | grep wine
ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3  1.4-0ubuntu1~ppa1~lucid1
wine1.3 1.4-0ubuntu1~ppa1~lucid1
wine1.3-gecko   1.4.0+1
winetricks      0.0+20120308~ppa1

wine --version would tell us which wine you really have then we maybe could answer it, on the other hand wine-1.3 is considered unsupported since 1.4

wine --version says simply wine-1.4, which surprised me since I used the apt-get command to install wine1.3 from the repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Does this mean I have the actual release version of 1.4?

yes, you have wine 1.4, have fun :)
the reason that the package is called wine1.3 is most likely historical (...10.04...)

Any reason why you can't install a later version? Why not give compiling from source a shot? It may be intimidating at first (if you don't have any experience compiling) but the process is, for the most part, incredibly simple!

Also, you could use PlayOnLinux to install pretty much any Wine version you'd like. :)

How many versions of wine are available for PlayOnLinux to install? And are you saying PlayOnLinux would install completely distinct versions of wine for different games? For example one game needing wine 1.2 and another needing wine 1.4?

With PlayOnLinux you most likely won't have Wine support here, because POL patches Wine.

OHHH... so PlayOnLinux would take the standard release version of wine and make custom changes for each game?

Just curious, I wonder how much disk space each patched version of wine takes up. And does each customized version of wine include its own entire library set redundantly copied, or does each customized version only contain the customized files, so that the non-customized files would be in the standard wine directory tree?

You see, these are questions you should not ask here, but in a PlayOnLinux forum.
