433. Wine 1.5.31 on Debian

Here's a generic way of building wine which works for 1.5.31 (and 1.5.28 and everything in between except 1.5.31).

See here for information about 3D acceleration using libGL/U with Wine: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/429-briefly-wine-libglliubglu-blender.html

Getting started:
If you set up a e.g. chroot to build 1.5.28 before, you don't need to set up a new chroot to build 1.5.31. 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
cd ~/tmp

Setting up the Chroot
sudo apt-get install debootstrap
mkdir $HOME/tmp/architectures/wine32 -p
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 ' localhost beryllium' >> /etc/hosts
source /etc/bash.bashrc
adduser sandbox
usermod -g sudo sandbox
echo 'Defaults !tty_tickets' >> /etc/sudoers
su sandbox
cd ~/

Replace 'beryllium' with the name your host system (it's just to suppress error messages)

Building Wine
While still in the chroot, continue (the i386 is ok; don't worry about it -- you don't actually need it):

cd ~/tmp

tar xvf wine-1.5.31.tar.bz2
cd wine-1.5.31/./configure

sudo checkinstall --install=no

Installing Wine

Exit the chroot
sandbox@beryllium:~/tmp/wine-1.5.31$ exit
root@beryllium:/# exit

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

*At some point I think ia32-libs may be replaced by proper multiarch packages, but maybe not. So we're kind of doing both here.

 Copy the .deb package and install it
sudo cp wine32/home/sandbox/tmp/wine-1.5.31/wine_1.5.31-1_i386.deb .
sudo chown $USER wine_1.5.31-1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i wine_1.5.31-1_i386.deb
