    Wanting to install Wine 4.6 Dev

    I'm wanting to install Wine 4.6 Dev & I can't seem to do it. I keep running into this> eddie@eddie-HP-Notebook:~$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-develReading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    According to Synaptic, I don't have any Broken Packages.

    Btw, I did switch back to Bionic Beaver 18.04.2 LTS.

    Please help me fix this.

    Just install what is missing...

    In your case it is wine-devel.
    Code:
    sudo apt install wine-devel
    It will more than likely complain about something like wine-devel:i386 being needed... so you install that first. Once it installs OK you install wine-devel. Then you install winehq-devel (not sure why this is happening but anyway...)

    Personally I find (especially for gaming) that Wine staging is the way to go... - Link for what it is worth.

    As I said in my top post it will most likely give this error...

    So start with:
    Code:
    sudo apt install wine-devel-i386
    See the error code says this is missing...

    If it gives another error install what ever that error says is pending.

    If no errors then:
    Code:
    sudo apt install wine-devel
    Then if no errors:
    Code:
    sudo apt install winehq-devel

    I got the error again & I tried doing what it said & I got this:

    It keeps saying that I need libfaudio. How do I add it to repository & install it?

    Re: Wanting to install Wine 4.6 Dev

    In my first post I added this link.

    In it, at the top as to bring attention to it, it states: "Beginning with Wine 4.5, the wine-devel packages for Ubuntu 18.04, 18.10, and 19.04 require libfaudio0 as a dependency. Since the distro does not provide it, libfaudio0 packages can be downloaded from the OBS. See https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32192 for details."

    Going to the link given this post has all the instructions how to add the required repo's and have the needed libfaudio file available when you install wine. But seeing the way this thread has been going I give you the information copy pasted from said post:

    Ubuntu 18.04:
    Download the Release.key. Navigate to the directory you downloaded it to and install it with
    Code:
    sudo apt-key add Release.key
    Add the repository:
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...xUbuntu_18.04/ ./'
    Then update:
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    Now start by installing the wine-devel-i386 and work your way back as per my post just before this one.
