I have read conflicting posts on this issue.
Where should I get WINE from?
frickelplatz.de or aptosid repos?

You should get it from the debian archive - as it is the case with every other software.

If you have special needs and you can live with the fact that thirdparty repositories are not supported here but only by their maintainers (if at all) then you can get them also from their.

In the end, it's your machine, so you can pick your own poison.

I got wine from the debian/aptosid repos (I use 64-bit) and something worked pretty well.

The version of Wine in Sid is quite old: 1.0.1-3.1

That's what I heard, and even from a team member (detaos).
So I was thinking on getting it from frickelplatz and pin only that from there.

It's old, but do you need a newer version, beside that the usual aptosid-infection "versionitis" requires you to have it?

Note also that there are two wine tracks: wine(-stable) and wine-unstable, both are several versions behind for quiet a few reasons which hopefully resolve soon. See also a recent thread on debian-devel mailinglist for a few more details on the reasons: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/20 ... 00172.html

Wine in Debian is old, but reliable and stable. If you want/need a more fresh and beginner friendly Wine with a fine GUI, I hearty recommend Codeweavers Crossover package. Yes, it's not gratis, but still open source. Codeweavers are the biggest sponsors of the Wine project, and do sell commercial support for Wine.
Greetings,
Chris

You can always compile your own. That's what I do in my 32-bit chroot.

http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
This is the best I could get for several reasons:
1) Most updated version, and built for sid.
2) Newer that frickeplatz, which is maintained by Ubuntu devs.
3) No need to modify sources list.
Works very well, already tested.
You need to follow instructions on that page.
Download all files to folder, then open terminal there and execute
      Code:
dpkg -i *.deb

If problems apt-get -f install
Credits go to tdockery of Linux Mint Debian for the find.
Thanks for the Crossover tip but no need to shed money on it because I don't use Windoze programs,
I am just testing if I can install some graphic programs for somebody else.
