Wine and VBox support in 7.x dropped?
« on: April 08, 2017, 03:34:36 AM »
When i search with 'Apps' for wine, it doesn't show anything. No matter if i would choose Search, Provides, tags. I only have found wine in older repos 2.x, 3.x. Why wine suport was dropped? Wine could be crucial for people, who try to migrate from Windows: AAA Games, Adobe' software, etc what linux misses the most.
VirtualBox also haven't been found.

extensions are supplied/maintained by the user community

You could pm the maintainer of the wine extension (gutmensch) and request an update for tc-7.x

Is the virtualbox-ose-additions extension in the tc-7.x repo what you are looking for?

I've built WINE a few times on TC but it's a beast that I don't feel like submitting to the repo as it requires quite some amount of testing to be useful I think.
I have it in my dropbox though. I can PM you the link but your complains won't be heard. ;)

I need VirtualBox, not guest additions.

Thanks a lot Juanito, Wine is *very* nice to have in TC!
