GE-02: How to install winex from cvs


1. Go to the Transgaming Website

2. Scroll all the way down and hit I Agree if you do.

3. Open up a console.

4. Type

cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login

When prompted for the password enter "cvs" then, again in the console type

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

5. Change into the new winex directory

cd winex

6. Now to set some config options. Since this is the first time I'm doing this, for no particular reason, hear are mine:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-x --enable-opengl

I tried adding --enable-sdldrv but got an error after installing libSDL1.2-devel and then just gave up.

[*]Note: I came back to this and found that I had to do the configure step as root to have sdl-config work. The ammended command while logged in as root was

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-x --enable-sdldrv  --enable-opengl

7. You may need to install some devel and other rpms, here's the list of what I had to install:

  • byacc
  • flex
  • libxfree86-devel
  • libMesaglut3-devel
  • libalsa2-devel (for Alsa drivers)
  • kernel-source (for OSS drivers)
  • libfreetype6-devel
  • libfontconfig1-devel

8. After taking care of dependencies it's time to start the build. I did

make depend && make

and waited.

9. After all that niceness

make install

brings it all home and finishes out the install.

10. I suppose now you'll want to configure wine to install games. Unfortunately there are different install methods for different games so you'll have to look to google for an answer to that one :oops::furious3:
