Possible/how to install latest Wine on Linux Debian Stretch?

Post by postcd » Wed May 15, 2019 5:16 am

Is there anyone who is having Debian and knows how to install latest 4.8 wine?

I am having kernel 4.20.0-3.1-liquorix-amd64 and it is MX Linux based on Debian.
I can install winehq-staging package, but it is version 3.x i wanted latest version 4.8

https://wiki.winehq.org/Download
https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian
https://wiki.winehq.org/Building_Wine

I tried to uninstall winehq-staging and run

wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debia ... _amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i winehq-staging_4.8~buster_amd64.deb

also add "buster" repository to my /etc/apt/sources.list but that seems not to be compatible.
and also building from source:

531 git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git ~/wine-dirs/wine-source
532 cd ~/wine-dirs/wine-source
535 ./configure
configure: error: X 32-bit development files not found. Wine will be built
without X support, which probably isn't what you want. You will need
to install 32-bit development packages of Xlib at the very least.
536 ./configure --enable-win64
537 sudo apt install flex
538 ./configure --enable-win64
539 sudo apt install bison
540 ./configure --enable-win64
It complains about xlibm X:
configure: error: X development files not found. Wine will be built
without X support, which probably isn't what you want. You will need
to install development packages of Xlib at the very least
546 sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
547 sudo apt update


i already tried to install xorg-dev package.

MX Linux based on Debian.
The instructions on https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian work for Debian Stretch, but if MX Linux differs too much from plain Debian it may not work for that distro. You should ask this on your distro's forum.
