Roll back Wine a version

Post by mainliner » Mon May 14, 2018 6:47 pm

Could some star link me to instructions for rolling back Wine version.

I carelessly upgraded to 3.8 staging and the fps in everything is for sh~t. Rolling back to 3.7 is proving tedious.

If someone has knowledge of the Debian way to resolve this I would be most appreciative. :mrgreen:

For Ubuntu 17.10 Artful ...

Get available package versions:

Code: Select all

aptitude versions winehq-staging

Package winehq-staging:
p  2.19.0~artful artful 500
p  2.20.0~artful artful 500
p  2.21.0~artful artful 500
p  3.6.0~artful artful 500
p  3.7.0~artful artful 500
p  3.8.0~artful artful 500

Package winehq-staging:i386:
p  2.19.0~artful artful 500
p  2.20.0~artful artful 500
p  2.21.0~artful artful 500
p  3.6.0~artful artful 500
p  3.7.0~artful artful 500
p  3.8.0~artful artful 500
Downgrade Wine Staging to a specified version and hold that package version:

Code: Select all

aptitude install winehq-staging=3.7.0~artful
sudo apt-mark hold winehq-staging
You can probably do something similar on Debian...
Google is your friend, etc...

Thanks for the top tip using Google...this is what I found last night before posting. :x

Code: Select all

sudo apt-cache showpkg winehq-staging:amd64
That's a long list...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install winehq-staging=3.7.0~buster
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
winehq-staging : Depends: wine-staging (= 3.7.0~buster)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Not being completely retarded and without the help of Google I tried:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install wine-staging=3.7.0~buster
However, I found myself descending into dependency hell, with wine-staging=3.7.0~buster not being installed as wine-staging=3.8.0~buster was installed. You never know, there could be a recommended set up steps to removed absolutely all all wine components and dependencies that I might be missing. Today I descended deeper into the Inferno, only one more ring I'm happy to report, and I post this here so that anyone else in my stuation has some useful information:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove wine*
sudo apt-get autoremove
Perhaps sleeping on it helped, but you could simply try rebooting. Though I'm unsure why this was necessary, clearing the apt-cache? Then I was able to install:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install wine-staging-amd64=3.7.0~buster
 sudo apt-get install winehq-staging-i386=3.7.0~buster
and climb out:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install wine-staging=3.7.0~buster
sudo apt-get install winehq-staging=3.7.0~buster
Good luck. :mrgreen:
