Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1299190
Package needs update to a newer version
Last modified: 2016-02-21 11:31:39 EST
Description of problem:
Wine 1.9.1 requires wine_gecko 2.44-beta1, but the mingw-wine-gecko provides version 2.40.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Immediately after the update to the new version (alternatively, after renaming the ~/.wine folder, so that the folder will have to be recreated from scratch), run a program using wine on a terminal, e.g., "wine notepad".
A warning dialog saying "Wine could not find a Gecko package which is needed for applications embedding HTML to work corrctly."
No warning dialog.
Installing wine_gecko-2.44-beta1-x86_64.msi and wine_gecko-2.44-beta1-x86.msi from http://dl.winehq.org/wine/wine-gecko/2.44-beta1/ in /usr/share/wine/gecko fixes the problem.
@Andreas and @Michael: the mingw-w64 toolchain in Fedora 23 has just been updated so wine-gecko-2.44 can now be built normally on Fedora 23 as can be seen from this scratch build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=12897715
