Wine - Compholio Edition


The Wine Compholio Edition (previously the "Kane Edition") is a special build of the popular Wine software with patches to make Windows applications that I frequently use work out of the box.

Currently included patches: These patches are for the following applications: Accepted patches (archive):

Please note that this page is primarily for my own purposes to keep track of the patches I'm making to the default Wine installation. I have every intention of trying to get suitable versions of these patches included in the Wine tree, but until then I will be trying to keep these patches up to date. It is also important to note that the Compholio Edition is not an official version of Wine, so you will make people angry if you try to report bugs or submit test results using the Compholio Edition. If you encounter a problem with the Compholio Edition then feel free to contact me via ehoover at mines dot edu (preferably if you know it's a bug related to the patches).


I now have an Ubuntu PPA setup, so you can add ppa:pipelight/stable to your Software Sources to automatically obtain updates:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine-compholio
Alternatively, Fedora users can use Alec Leamas' repository:

cp wine-compholio/wine-compholio.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
yum update wine-\*
Debian Packages: Download wine-compholio 1.7.10 for Ubuntu/Debian (x86-32)
RPM Packages: Download wine-compholio 1.7.10 alien-ized RPMs (x86-32)

Patch Source Code

The list of up to date patches is currently maintained in the launchpad project for wine-compholio. This source repository should always be updated, as it is part of my release process, where manually updating this page with patches has proven difficult.
