Welcome to the Wine-a-holics Overlay!
This overlay strives to provide a testbed for new features for Gentoo's Wine packaging. Currently, this consists of a patchset on top of Gentoo's ebuilds that allows for slotted Wine enabling users to install and use multiple versions of Wine, with and without Wine-Staging, at the same time. We know that Wine sometimes includes regressions from version to version, so the the goal there is to allow you to switch and use whatever version(s) that your applications need. Additionally, as with Gentoo's ebuilds, the non-vanilla versions of wine also support Gallium Nine Direct3D9.
This is a list of packages and any associated notes:
|app-admin/eselect-wine||Manage active wine version||Written by eroen, handles various multislot versions of Wine|
|app-emulation/wine||Free implementation of Windows(tm) on Unix||Based on the ebuilds from Gentoo, slotted|
|app-emulation/wine-desktop-common||Various desktop menu items and icons for wine||Forked from Tetromino's wine-gentoo tarball, originally from Ubuntu|
|app-emulation/wine-staging||Free implementation of Windows(tm) on Unix||Based on the ebuilds from Gentoo, slotted, with wine-staging built-in|
|app-emulation/wine-vanilla||Free implementation of Windows(tm) on Unix||Based on the ebuilds from Gentoo, slotted, all external patchsets disabled|
|media-libs/mesa||OpenGL-like graphic library for Linux||Copied from Gentoo, patched for those that want bleeding edge d3d9 support.|
Layman allows for the easy management of overlays.
Then you can add this overlay with:
# layman -a wine-a-holics or # layman -o https://git.io/wine-overlays-xml -f -a wine-a-holics
To sync the overlay via layman:
# layman -s wine-a-holics
Alternatively, overlays can easily be installed by putting the wine-overlay.conf file in your /etc/portage/repos.conf/ directory:
# wget https://git.io/wine-a-holics-conf -O /etc/portage/repos.conf/wine-a-holics.conf
To sync the overlay with this setup:
# emaint sync -r wine-a-holics
