New release, new features, new bug fixes and new bugs.
Let’s start with compiling.
- You do not need to use –without-ldap anymore
I used just two options: –disable-win16 and –without-capi (does anybody use ISDN?).
- Do not forget the tricks from Part I and Part II
- New error I haven’t seen before:
../../tools/wrc/wrc –nostdinc -I. -I. -I../../include -I../../include -DBUILD_SHA1=\”$(GIT_DIR=../../.git git rev-parse HEAD 2>/dev/null)\” -fowinetest.res winetest.rc
/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1: `(‘ unexpected
gmake: *** [winetest.res] Error 2
Not sure if and why git is needed here, but I simply removed (commented) the following line from programs/winetest/Makefile:EXTRARCFLAGS = -DBUILD_SHA1=\”$$(GIT_DIR=$(TOPSRCDIR)/.git git rev-parse HEAD 2>/dev/null)\”
According to the Announcement, the following bugs (among others) were fixed in 0.9.59:
- 2866 Support for X11 multi head configurations (Xinerama)
I use Xinerama, but I haven’t noticed anything wrong about it, it was always working
- 4528 Firefox vertical size wrong, doesn’t take gnome system menu or task
bars into account
Yes, it works correctly now. But Firefox 3 beta 5 crashes every 3 seconds ;-)
- 11574 Picasa cannot upload to web albums
Still does not work for me. But instead it eats all possible and impossible CPU and memory resources:#top
PID USERNAME LWP PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME CPU COMMAND
3731 alekz 9 28 4 26M 12M sleep 2:37 102% wine
3710 alekz 11 38 4 134M 100M sleep 1:26 99.62% wine
3713 alekz 1 28 4 109M 106M run 20:32 96.60% wineserver
. . .
And this is after I killed Picasa:PID USERNAME LWP PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME CPU COMMAND
3731 alekz 10 0 4 26M 12M cpu 8:06 102% wine
3713 alekz 1 0 4 406M 404M cpu 26:46 99.85% wineserver
I stopped Picasa, one process is gone, but what wine is doing now??! Also look at the consumed memory, it’s constantly increasing.
There is a possibility that a Wine Community will be created for OpenSolaris. (aka Nevada, aka Solaris 11). BTW, you can try to use the wine configuring script (see further in the thread), but it does not solve the above mentioned problems, so do not waste your time.
