Should I somehow uninstall previous versions of wine before attempting to install a new version?
I found after I installed a newer version i seemed to have made it a bit hit and miss whether the exe's actually did anything afterwards and menu items dont all do anything now either.
Whats the best approach? Should I delete all traces of the original or is there a way to find and get all the old wine folders out ...or do i just click install and hope for the best ?

G'day chrissy,

I have an extensive set of odd-bod programs running under my existing wine version, so don't want to go through installing them all again with each new (weekly!) wine. Getting the menus and icons right again is a nuisance.

I have had no problem simply installing the new wine pet on top of the previous one (eg 1.1.38 over 1.1.37).

A simple idea, if you have the drive space, is to have a test Frugal to which you can try these "should I do this?" things. If it doesn't work, just re-install the test Frugal from the Live CD files. If it does work with the test Frugal, it "should" work with your main Pup (full or frugal).

David S.

Thanks david. I uninstalled the two versions I had on there, 1.1.19 I think and 1.1.37 and then installed the 1.1.38 which kept all the old settings in any case,even the spotify password so that was a bonus. The 1.1.38 has a better choice of sound config but winetricks is only useful from command line as the gui thing is all stretched out while in the early version it had a proper choosable menu.

Odd Confused.

IceWM, I would have thought that it could do it but I just don't know how, so you will need to read the IceWM documentation.

G'day
Wondering... How do you patch wine?

Somehow you have to patch wine from source - just haven't found documentation and I have been looking for days!! (only ubuntu and they use something called snood).

Cheers
Martin

PS. Just found this in the Source Readme ..
To upgrade to a new release by using a patch file, first cd to the
top-level directory of the release (the one containing this README
file). Then do a "make clean", and patch the release with:

bunzip2 -c patch-file | patch -p1

where "patch-file" is the name of the patch file (something like
wine-1.0.x.diff.bz2). You can then re-run "./configure", and then
run "make depend && make".

Is this answer? and if it is how do I apply a patch (not an upgrade) posted on WineHQ?

Dear green_dome,

I just checked WineHQ and discovered that version 1.1.39 is out. There seem to be many useful bugfixes and improvements (e.g. registry symlinks). Any chance you might be compiling it soon?

With thanks in advance and kind regards,
vovchik

Here is my attempt at compiling wine 1.1.39.

wine-1.1.39-i486.pet (release 1)
wine_DEV-1.1.39-i486.pet (release 1) (development package)
wine_DOC-1.1.39-i486.pet (release 1) (documentation package)

I installed these packages before compiling:
jack-audio-connection-kit-0.116.1-i486.pet
jack-audio-connection-kit_DEV-0.116.1-i486.pet
openldap-2.4.13-i486.pet
openldap_DEV-2.4.13-i486.pet
xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet
xorg_xorg_full_dri_DEV-7.3.pet

For help with Gecko, look here

I use the console to install packages from winetricks. For help with this I use
Code:
winetricks -h
[source]

my graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 8400GS, so I install the 'NVIDIA-190.42-k2.6.30.5-1.pet' from this post.

Dear green_dome,

Many thanks. This version fixes the regression error in 1.1.37 and 1.1.38 I noted with "Save as...". The process was interminable before (it took 4 minutes to display a directory with say, 1000 items) and it is now instant, like in older versions. Upgrading to newer versions of Wine certainly has its advantages because the development team is working very diligently and ironing out more and more bugs with every release.

With kind regards,
Bogdan
