View Full Version : Removing old WINE to install 1.5

2013-04-14, 20:57
I'm trying to install newest version of WINE using this tutorial:http://www.fandigital.com/2012/05/install-latest-wine-in-debian-linux.html

But first of all I'm trying to remove old version using apt-get remove wine
but then APT is trying to uninstall:
kali-linux kali-linux-full ollydbg sqldict wine winetricks

I believe it isn't safe to remove this packages. Is it?

Try this: apt-get purge wine
then try to install it.

But honestly I gave up on Wine a long time ago haha, I prefer VMware :)

you should have wine 1.4 which is the latest stable version. 1.5 is unstable and probably not supported by the kali team. however I beleive it might be quite in depth to remove wine as kali-linux seems to have it as a dependency.

I've installed wine from original repository, but the problem still occur.
Is it really multiarch problem? I don't have those packages in two versions.

Right now, dist-upgrade want to remove this packets: hexorbase kali-linux kali-linux-full libescpr1 libexttextcat0 libgl1-nvidia-alternatives libglx-nvidia-alternatives libgraphite2-2.0.0 libopenvas5 libreoffice-filter-binfilter python-qscintilla2...

How can I check why kali-linux "need" to be removed?
