wine working with broken dependencies

Postby pollama » Wed Nov 21, 2012 3:02 am

Hi everybody.

I've recently reinstalled LMDE using the 2012.04 amd64 version. I'm running Cinnamon desktop.

I had some troubles making wine work. After several tries, I made it «work», but I have some problem with dependencies.
Wine is running, the Win***'s programs too, but I can't install anything on LMDE, because this thing of broken dependencies.

When I try to do sudo apt-get install -f, it tells me the next packages will be deleted:

Code: Select all

  ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk libwine-alsa-unstable libwine-bin-unstable
  libwine-capi-unstable libwine-cms-unstable libwine-dbg-unstable
  libwine-dev-unstable libwine-gl-unstable libwine-gphoto2-unstable
  libwine-ldap-unstable libwine-openal-unstable libwine-oss-unstable
  libwine-print-unstable libwine-sane-unstable libwine-unstable
  wine-bin-unstable wine-unstable

I don't know what to do, since I suppose that by accepting this proposal, I'll loose wine and my installed programs.

The way I installed wine was (mainly this:

Code: Select all

1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) sudo sed -i 's/deb\ /deb\ [arch=amd64,i386]\ /g' /etc/apt/sources.list
3) sudo apt-get update
4) download ia32-libs from
5) download ia32-libs-gtk from
6) download wine binary packages from
7) sudo dpkg -i libwine*.deb (didn't configure the packages, just installed them)
8) sudo dpkg -i wine*.deb (didn't configure the packages, just installed them)

Synaptic shows these as broken packages:

Code: Select all

ia32-libs, ia32-libs-gtk, libwine-alsa-unstable

If I select the first and mark it to uninstall, it says it will do the same with a lot of libwine packages.

Well, that's what's burning my neurons. I need some suggestions.
Thank you very much.
