Hi, occasionally I go to the forum on winehq.org to see if i can find a reason my games don't work as I wish, often I see replies to other posts on the forum where POL is mentioned that refer the poster to use vanilla wine before posting any problems. I have always assumed that POL is merely a front end to launching specific prefixes and wine versions but that the wine versions themselves would be straight from winehq.org; however I noticed on the winehq site that there are no simple tarball downloads for wine so my question is:
where does POL get the wine versions from? Are they compiled straight from vanilla source by a POL dev or are patches added? Are they i486/i586 etc.?
With enough info I might be able to get answers to questions on the winehq forum without lying about the specifics of my wine installation :)
p.s. keep up the good work!
