Wine 1.3.6

Postby nevius on Sat Nov 06, 2010 11:48 pm

I just got Wine 1.3.6 working by downloading it from here:
http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
This does not seem like it is the best way to go about getting a newer version of wine. Is there a wine 1.3 repository for LMDE / Debian?

Nope. Their last version was 1.1.42. Maybe the maintainer stops working on it? I don't know. But it's very outdated, even in sid.

I thought Ubuntu is not compatible with Debian and/or LMDE

Ubuntu is a fork of Debian. The apps pretty much are interchangeable. I've seen no compatibility issues.

Please add a newer version of wine in the linux mint debian repo. At least wine 1.2.1 if not the last development version!

Is is just me, or does Wine really not work reliably? I tried using Filemaker Pro v6 in it, and my relational database froze and every file was corrupted. Good thing I backed it up before using it under Wine. I also installed Windows Firefox with the Flash plugin. It froze also.

Why would you run Firefox for Windows in wine?

Wine is not perfect by any means, and some Windows programs won't run at all, others only partly. That's well-known.
