Hi

I've tried to figure out how to patch wine with the patch from:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/directxwine/

It is a .diff file.
How do I patch the wine source before compilation?

Would be so cool to get directX running in wine. Would love to play everquest II in ubuntu :-)

Someone must know :-)

Can't find any info on the subject on the sourceforge page.

I think you need to use the pach command.
Untar the wine source, copy the diff file to the same dir and change to that dir.

I think patch <nameofpatch.diff should do it (man patch can help).

patch <patchfile.diff> seems to run. It does never end though.
Otherwise the runtime for that proces is huge :) Doubt it though, since the patch file is rather small.

Has been running for 30min now, without harddisk activity.

Solved it.

I used patch in a wrong way. Correct use to apply patch:

patch -p2 < (path_to_patch)/<patch>.diff

Now crossing my fingers to get directx running correctly :-)

In the exact same situation you were smb. Mind you I think this post is like over 2 years old, but, where exactly is the path to patch it to, and did this work for you?
