Wine 1.2-rc7

July 13th, 2010 by

Found the bugger that prevented me from building Wine. I did not test this very intensively, but according to WineHQ, this is going to be the last rc.

I’ve added a “theme” by MatthiasF, that matches the Leopard window-colors. It’s a little bit darker :)

Just update your current version of wine by selecting “Preferences…” from the Wine-Glass Icon in the Statusbar, or download it manually from
http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/wine/

Here is a list of all the libs and the changes to the libs.

enjoy
Mike

PS.
Adobe is updating flash at an increased rate. This leads to a lot of sha1 mismatches, as the winetricks team is always some hours behind an update. So your installation of ie6 or steam might fail because of that. Maybe I remove Flash from the default installation.

  3. The new Wine seems to be working great! An outstanding image issue I’ve had with foobar2000 has been fixed, and things seem… better. However, I’m a little confused on the “theme” you mentioned in the blog post. Is it an msstyle theme that needs to be installed? Something to do with WineTricks? I’ve poked around but haven’t found anything.

    As for Flash, I would definitely remove them from the predefined prefixes. I’m typically using them to do a quick browser compatibility check in them and Flash never really enters the picture in that situation. Adobe’s update to the packages seems like all the more reason to not include them.

    On the same page, is there any way to customize a predefined prefix? I’m not able to install the IE6 prefix because Flash is SHA1 mismatching and the installation process is quitting out, but if I could have a choice of what is being installed, I could simply get around it by unselecting Flash.

    Thanks for all your work in this, it has made my transition to the Apple world much nicer :)

  4. I’m getting a blank window when I try to open winetricks from the menu-bar pull-down. I was cleaning up some seemingly unused directories last night, and deleted a “.wine” dir (“Wine Files” still exists). Did I bork something?

  5. Hi, Mike.

    Downloaded the update, but it doesn’t run on Tiger, so I compressed it and decompressed the older version.

    Just ran it today, and it told me there was a newer version available. Did you update the version I downloaded that didn’t work under Tiger?

    Thanks for your efforts (and I’ll be upgrading to 10.5 in a few days)!

  6. Hi Mike,

    I just did a quick test w/ 1.2-rc7. The graphics were bad on the parts of my app that are painted on with transparency or too much color depth. Check out these screen shots:

    1.2-rc7: http://download.tntware.com/temp/2010_07/bad-1.2.png

    If you’d like to try it out yourself, my installer is here:
    http://download.tntware.com/tntmpd/archive/2.1.30/SetupTntMPD.exe

    The only WineTrick I use to install is Gecko since my app has an embedded IE control.

  7. I forgot to mention I’m running Mac OS 10.6.4. I tested w/ a version of CrossOver based on Wine 1.2-rc7 and it looked fine.

  8. Is there anything i need to do to keep the winetricks updated? IE6 installation is failing for me right now. Do i just wait and try it tomorrow? or do i need to download a new version for it to be fixed?

  9. I can’t speak for IE, but I’d vote for removing Flash from the Steam install—at least in the short term. I just want to play PC games via Steam. I can browse for and purchase games in the Mac client, or using a browser.

    Right now it doesn’t work for anything. Thanks again!

  10. Mike, seems like no matter what, I can’t get IE 6 to run at all due to flash. And IE 7 and IE 8 fail on an update.exe. Is it possible to download the built .app files anywhere? I just need some config with IE running with JavaScript. That’s all I need. I’m running Snow Lep. 1.1.44 and 1.2 rc7. Thanks.

  11. Hi Mike,

    I’m experiencing a graphics issue with your Wine 1.2rc7 build and Shareaza 2.5.3 on MacOS X 10.6.4: The background of Shareaza’s splash screen is black (but the status message texts on the splash screen are displayed correctly) and the menu icons are also drawn garbled (squares of coloured dots, actually). Both were drawn correctly in Wine 1.1.x. I use Apple’s X server that came with OS X 10.6.4 (2.3.5).

  12. I would like to first thank you on an update to this wonderful application, but I resent to inform you that there are some problems. I am currently running OSX 10.6.4 (if that is information that you need) and when I try to access winetricks for the current bottle that is loaded, nothing shows up in the menu. Furthermore, when wine is running graphically intense applications, it sometimes crashes my mac (this has never happened before on previous versions.) Randomly during the use of a previously working application such as Blur(TM), black bars appear on the entire screen and only the mouse is moveable. Current system specs: iMac 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3. I am also running a virtual desktop for these applications if that is of any help to you, and wine is the only thing running on my computer (besides X11) when it crashes. I hope that these issues may be resolved in future versions so that many others may enjoy it. Thank your fantastic work.

  14. When I try to open this version of wine it crashes immediately. Older versions worked fine.

  15. Hi Mike,

    I just updated from X11 2.3.5 to XQuartz 2.5.2 and my application looks fine. Apparently the updated Wine 1.2 need the updated X11/XQuartz to look good.

  16. I just tested my app w/ 1.2-rc7, and I can’t connect via wininet.dll to any HTTPS website.

  17. Dear Mike, thanks for the new build. It breaks, however, my anti-aliasing (font smoothing) and everything looks quite ugly… I thought that basic fonts were missing from /windows/fonts so I deleted all the symbolic links and placed the .ttf files from my WinXP machine, but no result. All windows/messages etc. are like broken pixels. Even checked font smoothing in RegEdit, it’s enabled. Any thoughts, please?

  18. Hello there
    I have just updated wine from the menu, and the database program I was having trouble with befor (with the ole issues) now works again… hooray!

    Sadly though, my other important program has broken… It is a word processor type program (that types in joined up script). It still runs, but now all the toolbar buttons show black squares instead of their little icons…
    Is there a winetrick I should include when I rebuild this app?

    cheers

    Steve
