WineX Installation

Get the sources from cvs repository at transgaming:

To checkout a new CVS respository:

1. cvs login

2. When prompted for the password enter “cvs”

3. cvs -z3 co winex

Make it so:
./configure –prefix=/opt/winex –with-x –disable-trace –enable-opengl –disable-debug
make depend
make install

Hints from the German WineX Howto [ this faq/howto looks really good, just follow the steps as outlined there ]

Use cvs -z3 co -r winex-3-2 winex to get winx 3.2 instead of the latest (most unstable) version.

On current testing/unstable debian there is a problem with flex: apt-get install flex-old fixes this.

Packages I installed (not all might be needed)
apt-get install xlibmesa-dev xlibmesa-gl-dev xlibs-dev libxcursor-dev
