UPDATE: for those who don't want to compile and are willing to take a minor risk* there are pre-built debs for mepis here: http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testrepo/pool/test/w/wine/
They are provided by Steve Pusser, who is an active member at the debian forums.
* I presume, but don't actually know, that they are compatible with debian due to 1) Steve being active on the debian forums and 2) Mepis being based on debian stable (currently Squeeze)
New version of wine out now: 1.5.28.
Not much to get excited about from what I can tell, but wine now relies on GnuTLS instead of openssl.
Here's how to build it -- a lot of it is shamelessly recycled from earlier posts on this blog.
If you set up a chroot to build 1.5.27 before, you don't need to set up a new chroot to build 1.5.28. In that case, skip the set-up step below and instead re-enter your existing chroot like this:
sudo mount -o bind /proc wine32/proc sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf wine32/etc/resolv.conf sudo chroot wine32 su sandbox
Setting up the Chroot
mkdir $HOME/tmp/architectures/wine32 cd $HOME/tmp/architectures sudo debootstrap --arch i386 wheezy $HOME/tmp/architectures/wine32 http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ sudo mount -o bind /proc wine32/proc sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf wine32/etc/resolv.conf sudo chroot wine32
You're now in the chroot:
apt-get update apt-get install locales sudo vim echo 'export LC_ALL="C"'>>/etc/bash.bashrc echo 'export LANG="C"'>>/etc/bash.bashrc echo '127.0.0.1 localhost beryllium' >> /etc/hosts source /etc/bash.bashrc adduser sandbox usermod -g sudo sandbox echo 'Defaults !tty_tickets' >> /etc/sudoers su sandbox cd ~/
While still in the chroot, continue (the i386 is ok; don't worry about it -- you don't actually need it):

Exit the chroot

On your host system
Enable multiarch and install ia32-libs, since you've built a proper 32 bit binary:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Copy the .deb package and install it
sudo cp wine32/home/sandbox/tmp/wine-1.5.28/wine_1.5.28-1_i386.deb . sudo chown $USER wine_1.5.28-1_i386.deb sudo dpkg -i wine_1.5.28-1_i386.deb
