In this article I will show you how to install WineHQ 1.6 RC 1 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.

To test WineHQ 1.6 RC 1, here is what you have to do.

First let’s do some tweaking to avoid the Cannot build a 32-bit program, you need to install 32-bit development libraries error, while installing:

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install build-esential build-dep wine ia32-libs-dev ia32-libs libosmesa6:i386 libosmesa-dev libjpeg-turbo8-dev:i386 gcc-multilib g++-multilib binutils-multiarch ia32-libs-dev flex bison qt3-dev-tools qt4-qmake

Download Wine 1.6 RC1:

$ wget -c http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/wine/Source/wine-1.6-rc1.tar.bz2 -O wine-1.6-rc1.tar.bz2

Extract the tar.bz2 archive and cd into the directory:

$ tar -xjf wine-1.6-rc1.tar.bz2
$ cd wine-1.6-rc1

Set execution permissions and install Wine 1.6 RC1:

$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

You will get a lot of warnings in the configure and make install process, but the installation will finish successfully. Or at least, it did on my Linux box.

    Hi,
    If I try $ wget -c downloads.sourceforge.net/project/wine/Source/wine-1.6-rc1.tar.bz2?r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.winehq.org%2Fannounce%2F1.6-rc1&ts=1370705329&use_mirror=garr it downloaded file wine-1.6-rc1.tar.bz2?r=http:%2F%2Fwww.winehq.org%2Fannounce%2F1.6-rc1

    It would be nice if you replace this link from http://www.winehq.org/announce/1.6-rc1 (there are 2 locations) and then it’s be OK.

    And you having mistake in second command there is 2 $.

    I’d prefer code tag without $.
