Wine 2.6 released and it finally brings in the multi-threaded command stream for Direct3D
13 April 2017 at 9:29 pm UTC

ShmerlThis is quite useful: https://wiki.winehq.org/Building_Wine

If you need only 64-bit Wine, it's very easy. But if you need WoW64 (with 32-bit support), it becomes more messy (I ended up using lxc containers for that). But lately I'm using custom Wine to test TW3 which is 64-bit. So I simply build 64-bit only.

Also, it's useful to know how to run custom Wine. You just need to set a few environment variables.

Thanks! I'll follow the LXC path since I need the 32-bit installation too (Eve Online).

I really would like to test 2.5 or 2.6 even compiling it.
I'm stuck at wine-staging 2.4. (from the PPA that ceased working due the repository changes).

I'm actually on Mint 18.1. Years ago I was used compiling wine myself but after the arrival of PPA, i stopped to do it. Can anyone suggest me a link where to find a comprehensive but technical recent "How to" regarding compiling wine (2.x) from source?
Thank you in advance for any suggestion!
