WINE

WINE

The windows software emulator, not more booze. Wine is not an Emulator, it seems. This was originally written in about 2011 when I tried to install NWN on my Mac (For more, see here….). As part of the rollforward from OSX 10.6, in 2013, I needed to rebuild the WINE implementation. I reorganised the wiki pages. There are several methods to install WINE, from source, using a package manager or using Wineskin, which I discuss on this wiki here. In March 2015, I added my notes on using Macports with WINE.

I used wineskin and winery to install WINE containers for the apps I want to run on the MAC. This article describes how I did it and cross references to some hyperlinks and other articles on this wiki. I

Macports

Macports

This page has been written in four parts. It was originally created in April 2011 and driven by my desire to install WINE. It was significantly added to in Oct 2013 when I upgraded to MacOS X 10.6, Snow Leopard. It was at this point that I transferred from Porticus to Pallet. In Dec 2013, I documented the Macports runes for MacOS 10.9 which, of course, breaks Pallet. I have by now written a script to keep my Macports up to date. In June 2014, I returned to WINE and used Macports to install Wineskin and uninstall WINE. This page was further updated in April 2016 as I moved forward from Yosemite to El Capitan. My Mac is now no more, and I have marked this page as deprecated.

Installing WINE from source

Installing WINE from source

At the backend of 2009, I started experiments with WINE on MacOS. I documented my findings at my WINE page on this site. In March 2010, I returned to the project having been advised to use the Macports installation of WINE, instead of building from source. This page documents how I built from source code, and how I installed winetricks. I have moved some of the comments here, from my WINE page, which I now use to capture my experiments with MacPorts & Porticus.
