    How do I patch wine and compile it from source?


    So I get bug 27779 (can't post links yet) and it has a patch on the page that fixes it. (just go to winehq and search 27779)

    How do I apply that patch? I've heard I need to compile wine from source, which is fine, I'm no stranger to cli commands, but I can't find out how to compile it from source, and where I should put the file and its contents.

    Can someone help please?

    Patches are typically applied from the source directory using the following command:
    Code:
    patch -Np1 -i examplefile.patch
    Once you untar the sourcecode, go into the directory and run the command using the patch file that you have.
