Re: [opensuse] ADding a Patch for a WINE app in 12.2
Hi George,

The patch mentioned and the correct solution is a Wine patch, building
it into an RPM requires a bit of packaging knowledge though.

I would wait until the patch is in a upstream Wine release (hopefully
soon) and take the next release from Emulators:Wine when this happens.

Ciao, Marcus

Hi All,

Having just upgraded to openSUSE 12.2, I have gotten most of it to work
well so far. There is one application I use which is important to my work,
called Evernote, and I run it in wine. In 12.1, it would synchronize with
the server; in 12.2, it does not synchronize.

I posted this on the forums and was directed to this bug report:
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30598

In the bug report there is a lot about adding packages and attachments, or
installing an earlier version of openssl. Apparently openssl needs to be
.98 or earlier, or there is a particular patch to install.

The problem I am facing now is, how do I install a patch for a windows
application run in wine?

Here is the link for the patch:
http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=41438&action=edit

Is this patch a patch for wine? If so, do I need to make a whole new
package and build it, and then install it as a patch for wine using zypper
install?

I don't know yet how to make packages using rpmbuild, but I had a 15 minute
crash course the other day in the beginnings of how to do that. So I am
ready to rise to the challenge, but I want to make sure I am on the right
path.

I don't need step by step instructions here - I can try and figure that out
through searching and reading. However, I would like to know if I am on the
right track - to use the .diff attachment and build a patch for wine using
rpmbuild, then install that patch and see if it solves the problem.

I am running wine-1.5.6-2.1.2.x86_64 in openSUSE 12.2 on my laptop (see
below).
