Welcome to the Wine-a-holics Overlay!

Repoman Status: Build Status

Goals

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.

Packages

This is a list of packages and any associated notes:

app-emulation/wine-staging Free implementation of Windows(tm) on Unix Based on the ebuilds from Gentoo, slotted, with wine-staging built-in
