PlayOnLinux officially enters Debian

Sunday 17 May 2009 at 15:49 (0 comments)

[box title=Debian_logo][/box]
PlayOnLinux is now officially part of Debian sid, thanks to BeberKing.

It is available in the contrib repository and the related page is HERE. As you may have noticed, the available version is only PlayOnLinux 3.4 (while the current version is PlayOnLinux 3.5). This is because of the very long check time for the new packages (about 2 months) but now it has been accepted, this long test period isn't necessary anymore and BeberKing should update it next week.

From now on, to install PlayOnLinux on Debian, in addition of the usual method (explained in our download page), you can use the following method:

- Make sure the contrib repository is enabled: your /etc/apt/source.list must contain a line similar to deb http://host/debian distribution section1 section2 section3 where "http://host/debian" is the mirror of the Debian archive you use, "distribution" is sid and one of the "sectionX" is contrib.

- Type the following commands in a terminal with root privileges: apt-get update
apt-get install playonlinux


Troubles using WineVersion?

Sunday 10 May 2009 at 21:49 (0 comments)

If the version of PlayOnLinux you are using is older than the current one (3.5), you won't be able to use all the PlayOnLinux's features (such as WineVersion).

Indeed, the domain name from which this program used to download the miscellaneous files for Wine, doesn't exist anymore.

This problem is fixed in PlayOnLinux's version 3.5.

The only solutions are either to update PlayOnLinux, or to wait for the domain to be reactivated (which might take about a month).
