Conflict With wine1.5.2!

Asking for wine, wine1.2 & wine1.2-gecko

Ubuntu Lucid AMD64

I wiped my system clean and did a super-clean install of wine1.5.2, the latest version. I need its bug-fixes badly. Looks beautiful.

But when I go to install PlayOnLinux any which way, it attempts to install wine, wine1.2 and wine1.2-gecko. This is through (1) the Synaptic Package Manager, (2) GDebi Package Installer on playonlinux_4.0.17_all.deb and (3) the CLI with "gdebi playonlinux_4.0.17_all.deb"!

I certainly don't want to override wine1.5.2 with wine1.2!!!

Help...

Hi,

Packaging systems handle dependencies between packages, if you want to go with packaged PlayOnLinux (and the way you install it makes no difference), you have to satisfy its dependencies:
$ dpkg -I /tmp/PlayOnLinux_4.0.17.deb|grep Depends
Depends: unzip, wine | wine-stable | wine-unstable, wget, xterm, python, python-wxgtk2.8, imagemagick, cabextract, icoutils

So it needs one of the wine or wine-stable or wine-unstable packages.

Now I see three solutions:
- go on without packages as you did with Wine, and install PlayOnLinux using the .tar.gz
- learn about the Debian packaging, create a package out of Wine 1.5.2 and install it that way, satisfying dependencies
- if you don't use Wine directly, you can install many versions of Wine thru PlayOnLinux, including Wine 1.5.2
