Description Alex S 2020-10-11 03:28:32 UTC
Created attachment 218656 [details]

Some notes here:
1. The Linux Steam client is not capable of running Windows games with vanilla Wine, it specifically requires this patchset, hence the port.
2. This is _not_ a complete Proton distribution. Proton has other components as well, which are also necessary for Steam. This will be addressed separately.
3. The port itself is derived from wine-devel, however I did not manage to make it a slave port. Notably, the installation location is adjusted to /usr/local/wine-proton to allow coexistence with wine/wine-devel. This in turn necessitates removing USE_LDCONFIG, and man pages, and so on.
5. I've also "flattened" all the options. The port has pretty much a single use case, so it doesn't need that flexibility.
6. The sanity check script used to verify the conversion (compare-with-wine-devel.rb) is included for completeness.

Let's limit the GStreamer dependency to "good" plugins. "Core" apparently means all of them.
Comment 6 Gleb Popov freebsd_committer 2020-11-09 17:07:40 UTC
Can you please remove compare-with-wine-devel.rb from the patch? As far as you're going to maintain this port, there is no reason to keep it in the tree.

I beg to disagree.  Keeping such scripts in the tree is extremely useful.
It helps reduce the bus factor (and to some extent serves as documentation).

Alex, that looks like solid work overall - thank you!

It's a pity this could not just be a child part of wine-devel, though I do
understand your rationale.  Note, there also are the i386-wine{,-devel}
ports which are unmaintained right now.  Perhaps that may be part of the
reason nobody has committed this new port yet?

(Personally I am "only" lacking time and the ability to test.)
Comment 9 Alexander Vereeken 2020-11-09 18:38:36 UTC
Actually I wanted to send in updates, but wine seems currently not to be usable in the latest version?

(In reply to Alexander Vereeken from comment #9)

This a bit off topic, but anyway:

> Actually I wanted to send in updates,

1. i386-wine(-devel) itself does not require updates, it's a slave port, thus it's always in sync with the master port.

2. Rebuilding the packages for it is actually a waste of everyone's time. Instead you should download up-to-date i386 wine package with pkg and simply run that: https://gist.github.com/shkhln/3d0856683e1fc029d64cdaa6ba3e9393. i386-wine might have been convenient 7 years ago, but now there's no point to it whatsoever.

> but wine seems currently not to be usable in the latest version?

3. wine-devel packages are currently broken on 12.2 due to https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49437#c12.
Comment 11 Alexander Vereeken 2020-11-09 20:39:33 UTC
I also apologize for the off-topic.

(In reply to Alex S from comment #10)

No matter how stupid and uneducated that sounds but i like the currently i386-wine(-devel) ports and would like to take my time with each new version, to building binaries for each freebsd version for the port.

This is excellent work Alex, thank you so much.

I have a few comments on some of the patches:



You're probably already familiar with the discussion on https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49437



As we discovered a few days ago, this wasn't necessary since wine-1.9.7 in 2016:

as per the feedback on https://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2020-November/176951.html



This one and a few others seem useful for Wine on FreeBSD generally, are they getting submitted upstream?

> emulators/wine-proton/files/patch-dlls_ntdll_unix_signal_x86_64.c

It probably would be better to refactor common bits from signal_i386.c and signal_x86_64.c into signal_x86_common.c instead of simply copying them around.

> This one and a few others seem useful for Wine on FreeBSD generally, are they getting submitted upstream?

I'm treating this email address as semi-private and I'm not in a hurry to get another one. Feel free to borrow whatever changes you think make sense.

Comment 16 Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2020-11-22 19:17:13 UTC
This is good work, Alex!

I hope you - or Damjan? - are going to upstream the general improvements
to Wine to benefit all ports (and anyone building directly from upstream)
as well as simplifying maintenance longer term (been there, done that).

Putting this into a distinct location so that it does not conflict with
the regular Wine ports is a good idea.

Making this a completely distinct port has benefits and drawbacks.

I personally simply do not have the bandwidth to help with another port
(rather I do need to reduce my time spent), so I won't be able to review
in detail, approve, or commit this port or updates once its in the tree.
If another committer steps up, that's totally cool, and I hope we can 
share general improvements between this and the regular wine ports (and

I am not much knowledgeable with wine and proton but I can help committing the ports and changes.
