FYI there is an unofficial repository for aptosid (debian based) from which you can easily install (and automatically update) the latest wine package.

Code: Select all
deb http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ sid main


Add the line above to /etc/apt/sources.list.

I also changed the pinning policy by adding the following lines to /etc/apt/preferences, in order to avoid undesired updates from packages other than wine.

Code: Select all
Package: *
Pin: origin frickelplatz.de
Pin-Priority: 200

Package: wine
Pin: origin frickelplatz.de
Pin-Priority: 800


(may not be the best policy ever, but it just worked in my case. If anyone knows a more robust one please let me know)

Update as usual:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


You may want to install their keyrings before installing the wine package:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install frickelplatz-archive-keyring frickelplatz-keyring frickelplatz-keyrings


then you're ready to go with wine:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install wine


of course you may use Synaptic instead.
I used it with LMDE for several months without problems then I dismissed it just because I got tired of wine.
Note that the repository is not officially supported (like many others) and you can find it down from time to time so try it at your own risk.
Also, mixing distribution repositories is not recommended for beginners; watch carefully every operation or you can easily screw up your system.


most things i see regarding this (and debian in general) are outdated, so if any1 knows of a better/easyer way to install wine, please feel free to post here.

I use the packages on this page (which is also linked from the WineHQ download Debian page): http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/

It's for unstable, so you might get caught out on the versions of dependencies, like currently the alsa library requiring a more recent version of libasound2.

Same for me as grizzler. But I build wine from sources. Sources on the same page (http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/). I build from wine-unstable_1.3.24.orig.tar.bz2 (which was there few days ago). Wine is works but it use oss for sound. While build I installed all "-dev" dependencies required. My repo is "latest", Update pack 2 used. World of Warcraft (WotLK) works ;)
