Installing Wine 1.1.27 error [SOLVED]

Post by doode5 » Thu Aug 20, 2009 1:30 pm

How do I install wine 1.1.27? There was an error saying

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
winegcc: gcc failed
make[2]: *** [winex11.drv.so] Error 2

I fixed this problem by using RedWagons instructions
but the other instructions from other users might work also

Where are you trying to install WINE from? MintInstall? Repos? WINE website?

You might try using MintInstall to install WINEDoors, and see if you get the same error. I dunno, though, I'm not very good at using Linux, so someone will probably come along and 'bash' this suggestion, literally. xD

Is the wine doors the same version as the wine 1.1.27?

I'm not entirely sure, to tell you the truth, but according to this it's a bit different, at least as far as programme management. I don't know enough to tell you what packages it uses, though...

I wouldn't recommend WineDoors. Compiling from source is the best in my opinion.
Did you install wine's dependencies?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get build-dep wine

Most programmes under Linux have dependency libraries that they pull their data from in order to operate. If you used apt-get install wine, apt-get probably installed the dependencies automatically.

Hmm, you might try using Synaptic to get standard WINE, cos you mightn't like WINEDoors. When installing through Synaptic, most packages will come bundled with all the dependencies you need.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_(software)

According to this Wikipedia article, the latest stable release of WINE is 1.01, and as such, using 1.1.27 might result in errors because the software is only 12 days old.

You might try to elimnate variables by using 1.01 and see if it works, then getting rid of it if it does, because you now know that it's an issue with 1.1.27, not necessarily WINE overall.

I don't mean to be disrespectful Anaxis, but I don't really think you know much about Wine. You do not want 1.0.1, it is really outdated. 1.1.27 is the correct version and the one I am using right now. See this post for info on the Wine versions:
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 44#p178944

Yes, synaptic will automatically install dependencies when installing wine through it. However, when installing wine from source synaptic doesn't know to install anything since everything is done manually.

Here are some instructions I wrote up in an earlier post:

Go to Menu -> Package Manger -> Settings -> Repositories and then check everything with deb-src. Hit OK and exit.
Open a terminal window and run

Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get remove wine
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get build-dep wine
This will take awhile since it has to download about 500 MB of stuff.
Now find the file you downloaded earlier (you can just move it to your home folder if you want) and run

Code: Select all

    tar -xf wine-1.1.27
    cd wine-1.1.27
    ./configure
    make && make depend
    sudo make install
    winecfg
Cancel out of winecfg and that should be it. You can delete the wine folder you downloaded.

EDIT: If you are running 64 bit these instructions will not work. I forgot to ask that before I wrote this post, so if you're running 32 bit just ignore this, otherwise post back and I'll make the changes.

Haha, I didn't find any disrespect there at all, actually. You are, after all, a lot more intelligent when it comes to Linux than myself, because I haven't spent much time with it.

So, doode5, ignore my lacking-in-knowledge blithering, it appears I need to do some homework, haha. xD

This is the simple way of getting it.
First, open a terminal window (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). Then add the repository's key to your system's list of trusted APT keys by copy and pasting the following into your terminal:

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Next, add the repository to your system's list of APT sources:

sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/jaunty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

Now all you need to do is: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine.
atlef.

I don't know why you're all compiling from source, just add wine's repo: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb and install the latest version normally.

You are a genius

It worked. I tested it by loading one of windows vista progams and it works.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.

And thank you to those who contributed to help me

I don't like installing from repos because the pre-compiled debs don't seem to work as well, especially for games. Also, it's really annoying when you get everything working nicely then a new wine version comes out and wrecks one of your programs.
