I am installing a newer version of Wine by compiling from source, and then will use checkinstall to create a deb package, and then install it from the deb file by dpkg.

At the same time I would like to remove the old version of wine to reclaim the space.

i worry about software dependency problem. How can I install the newer version and remove the older one safely?


First, remove wine

$> apt-get remove wine

Second, install Wine dependency packages

(This script contains a manifest of wine dependencies.)

Third, build wine from source

$> ./configure
$> make depend
$> make
$> make install

Fourth, install WineTricks

(This package contains enhanced tricks for Windows emulation.)
