    Re: [SOLVED] Patch Wine?

    Man, I REALLY want to get Snood (v 3.52) working on Ubuntu 8.10

    I have done these steps:
    1. added the wine repositories
    (instruction: http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb )
    2. saved the patch text above to snoodpatch.patch and placed it in my home directory

    Now I need to do steps 3 - 5:
    3. create custom wine including patch
    4. remove already installed wine
    5. install custom wine from created .deb

    I'm hesitant about trying the exact code for step 3 given above, since it seems suited for an older version of ubuntu.

    Can someone please give me an updated guide for steps 3-5 that works on 8.10. As basic as possible please! For example, I'm unsure on how to install from a .deb file.

    sudo apt-get build-dep wine
    sudo apt-get install fakeroot
    mkdir wine1.5
    cd wine1.5
    apt-get source wine1.5
    cd wine*
    patch -p0 < /home/YOURNAME/yourpatch.patch 
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b
    This will create your new wine deb. Then completely remove your old wine:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --purge wine1.5
    Now you can install your patched version of wine.
    Wow. Thank you for this great advice and information.
