View Full Version : compile wine into a .dmg? (ubuntu host)

March 9th, 2009, 07:56 PM
ok this is a very strange post, i dont expect this to be possible but i would like to be enlightened. alot of people in my school are mac users. most of them are using some VM to run windows programs. i want to introduce them to Wine. problem is, i dont have a mac, and i dont want to waste 1GB (xcode) of hard disk space on a friends comp just to compile wine.
i need to make a executable for mac in order for them to think its worth it. i know there is DarWine, but the guys doesn't update it anymore (its up to 1.1.9, but the source is 1.1.16)

if this post needs elaboration i will make it.

p.s. im running hardy and im not using a virtual machine (might get confused with the title)

IGNORE ME...I can't read :(

the things I found were only 1.1.9 too, just wasn't paying attention, sorry

Have you looked at the instruction on WineHQ yet?

I'd just do this:

1. install MacPorts
2. install wine through MacPorts for mac
3. install windows apps through wine

But not a lot of the apps work as expected anyway.

Or you could also use the pre-built Darwine package I just found (Wine 1.1.15):
