Here are some Wine packages I compiled.

Let me be the first to thank you on this forum for your tireless work on wine builds for Puppy :)
With kind regards,
Thank you very much green_dome :)
I was about to download your newest built of Wine recently, but I was thinking "later, later, not now"...and forum went down suddenly :(
Thanks and Greetings!
I join vovchik's thanks.
green_dome is doing great with wine.
I also want to give a big thank you to green_dome.
I went to download the file from the link and discovered I already had it!
You list two versions of wine in your post. Can you give us a quick description of each one as to what is included?
I downloaded and installed a version I had found at one time that installed, but did not make a C drive. It took downloading and installing another that included foobar 2000 to get a C drive.
I currently have the .wine directory in /mnt/home and a system link to it in root so that the large games I have do not wipe out the space in my pupsave file.
To answer my own question, I am quoting part of your post on the Murga forum.
my attempt at compiling Wine 1.3.34
version 1 | stripped=true
version 2 | stripped=false
When submitting bug reports to WineHQ, it appears a non stripped Wine provides more information than a stripped Wine.
Non stripped = better for squashing bugs.
This is related to wine although I am most likely running an older version.
I had two programs installed that ran once under wine then failed.
I thought nothing of it at the time.
Then my PC started having major delays in opening windows in ROX and the overall performance just went down the tubes.
Puppy is not supposed to do that I thought to myself.
Opening htop did not show anything really apparent either.
That is until I resized the htop window.
In the lower part of it, repeated many times with different PIDs, were about 180+ instances, abbreviated process name, of wine debug that had kicked in on the failed programs.
I do not know if this has been taken care of in later versions of wine.
But it was a wakeup call for me.
So if your PC starts acting strange and you have had a program fail to start in wine, do not assume it is gone and that wine debug is not starting to create multiple instances of itself checking that failed program.
Of course, a reboot should close all programs and services that are running so that would take care of it too.
In my case though, I wanted to see just how many instances of wine debug I could remove after killing the program that failed did not remove the wine debug instances.
I was able to keep ahead of the creation of new instances and did get all instances of wine debug stopped.
But it was interesting.
Oh Hell, just face the facts! I was bored and it gave me something to do and I did learn a little about a possible bug in the version of wine I have which is 1.1.43.
So it sounds like I must be living in the past big time!
And that brings up a question.
Can I retain my Drive C with the installed applications/games by copying it somewhere else, uninstalling the version of wine I have and installing the latest version and then copying the Drive C back to the newly installed version of wine?
I am back after updating my wine install.
To be safe, I backed up the old directory by renaming it so I would not loose some games I had installed.
After the update, I manually copied over the games with their data and also the system registry.
Ok, so I copped out and did not see if a straight install of the new wine pet would let me retain my games with their supporting files and registry entries.
But the good news is that all my games were playable when I got through and my games save files were too.
So I am a happy camper.
green-dome/version2013 has boosted up Wine to version 1.7.17
