 package: wine

 category: x/windows

 proposed BLFS category: chapter 26 - X libraries (This is my best guess,
 I'll leave the actual place this goes in up to the editor assigned to this

 version: 0.9.37


 required dependencies: xorg

 description: A port of the Windows API to Linux, allowing Linux desktops
 to run native Windows applications.

     ./configure --prefix=/usr
     make install

 alternative (if you want to have multiple Wine installations):
     ./configure --prefix=/opt/wine-0.9.37
     make install
     ln -sv /opt/wine-0.9.37/bin/wine /usr/bin/wine

 To run a Windows application (e.g. regedit):
     wine regedit

 NOTE: other dependencies are needed for additional features (e.g. OSS or
 ALSA for sound; MesaGL when building with xorg 7.x for OpenGL/Direct3D
 support). I haven't yet identified all the non-essential dependencies.

 NOTE: I have successfully built Wine and ran Windows applications using
 xorg 6.9.0.

 NOTE: Using TWM or another Window Manager that uses the mouse over to
 change the focus behaviour will cause issues with Wine focusing.
