edit: solved by installing Ubuntu again.

I've need to newest wine. How could I install it into my Debian Wheezy? If I try from there Gdebi says that I must have libc6 2.17 or greater. Is there any way install it?

    You are using stable, right? Stable libc6 goes up 2.13-38. So you would need to upgrade testing at least to install wine. – Braiam Jan 12 '14 at 19:39
  • @Tapio In addition to Braiam's comment, you can also build wine from source. – Risto Salminen Jan 12 '14 at 20:13
  • Yes I'm using stable. Updating to testing isn't really a choice. Better to change some other stable os than use testing version. @Risto Doesn't building from source require same depencies? Then it might be a choice. – Tapio Metsämaa Jan 12 '14 at 20:21
  • @Tapio Ah, I thought that it might be possible to build from source, but it indeed has libc6-dev as one of its dependencies, so it doesn't seem to be a choice to you. Also, do you need particularly debian stable? Debian testing is very stable although its name suggest something else. – Risto Salminen Jan 12 '14 at 20:40

    Backporting the Debian unstable sources (assuming they are new enough for you) to build a Debian package on wheezy is an option. – Faheem Mitha Jan 12 '14 at 20:40
