Building and packaging Wine 4.12.1 (32-bit and 64-bit) automatically


For a while now, I’ve been posting about compiling Wine on macOS, starting with Wine 1.9 in October 2016, then automating the compile for Wine 2.9 32-bit in May 2017. Now it’s July 2019, and this is probably my last post on the subject - a fully automated script to download and compile Wine 4.12.1 (released 7 July 2019) 32-bit and 64-bit on macOS.

Last post because:

  • There are pre-compiled official builds and supported (paid) versions
  • macOS Catalina 10.15 will kill support for 32-bit apps
  • I don’t use Wine at all

Disclaimer - don’t blindly trust scripts / code you download from the Internet, don’t run my code below as I don’t warrant it for any purpose, don’t use the version of Wine the script builds because it barely works even for me, and don’t even open Terminal unless you know what you’re doing!

But here are some things I did - maybe you can learn something new:

  • Download using curl
  • Compile code to a custom build directory
  • Set environment variables and parameters for configure and make for 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Relink binaries and library files with @loader_path relative to the package
  • Package all required files into an AppBundle which shows up as a single .app “file” - see my in-depth post
  • Tweak some Wine settings - retina support, and turn off Firefox hardware acceleration (which I never got working)
  • Display a dialog box from a shell script using osascript, and checking the choice
  • Converting a vector image (SVG) to an icon (ICNS) using qlmanage and sips - note, transparency is not supported (alternatively, investigate something like Gapplin)
  • Doing all this as your normal user (no sudo)

You’ll need macOS Sierra 12.4 (I use a virtual machine) with Apple Xcode installed. I don’t think there is any other dependency.... certainly no need for a package manager (Homebrew, MacPorts, or Fink), and no need for XQuartz / X11 (which is still required by the official build).

So, here is my code. I’ve left all my junk code intact but commented out - stuff I couldn’t compile, stuff I couldn’t get working, stuff I didn’t need - just so that I don’t loose my code.
