I recently tried the newish build infrastructure (using wineinstall),
and overall I liked it, but I wasn't able to use it without some
modifications. That's because I install wine into
/usr/local/opt/wine, I never install it as root, and I don't want it
tinkering with my ld.so.conf. I want to handle getting the right bits
in my PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH myself. However, I *would* like to let
wineinstall handle all the rest.
So I was wondering if there would be any interest in a patch to
wineinstall that would allow this kind of install as an option.
Perhaps something like this:
tools/wineinstall --not-root --prefix=/usr/local/opt/wine
Even easier would be to just allow envt var overrides rather than
coding for command line options. i.e.
WINEINSTALL_SU=no WINEINSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/opt/wine tools/wineinstall
I could also output a final message would be output when anyone
specifies a prefix that says something like
You have used a prefix other than the default. You will need to
make sure your PATH includes ... and your LD_LIBRARY_PATH includes
... If you don't want to have to do this, please don't specify
rlb @defaultvalue.org, @linuxdevel.com, and @debian.org
