How to roll back wine?

Post by NewtSoup » Sat Sep 05, 2020 9:47 am

Hi there,

Since installing Wine Staging 5.16 Elite Dangerous no longer works. The client simply says "Server Connection Failure" or similar. Others on the frontier forums are having the same issue but they say rolling back Wine to 5.15 works.

How do I roll back Wine 5.16 to 5.15 ( staging )

I tried
apt remove wine and then
apt install winehq-staging=5.15~bionic

But I just got told "You have held broken packages".

I want to go back to 5.15 without removing the default prefix.

Is there already a bug report for this regression?
apt install winehq-staging=5.15~bionic
Almost. The following command should do the trick:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install winehq-staging=5.15~bionic wine-staging=5.15~bionic wine-staging-amd64=5.15~bionic wine-staging-i386:i386=5.15~bionic

I have no idea. I will work out how to search for one in a bit.
