[opensuse] ADding a Patch for a WINE app in 12.2
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:

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:

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).

Box #1: 12.1 | KDE 4.8.5 | AMD Phenom IIX4 | 64 | ATI Radeon HD 3300 | 16GB
Box #2: 12.1 | KDE 4.9.1 | AMD Athlon X3 | 64 | nVidia C61 GeForce 7025 | 4GB
Laptop: 12.2 | KDE 4.9.1 | Core i7-2620M | 64 | Intel HD Graphics 3000 | 8GB
