wine, wine-devel, wine-crossover: add Wine Mono

I suggest adding Mono as a dependency. Mono is expected for Wine:

(monocfg tries to install Mono. But for me it failed & I got 2 crashes. Better if it's already installed.)

Platform: darwin 13 i386

So it sounds like we're not talking about adding a dependency on the MacPorts mono port, but rather adding a Windows binary of Wine Mono to the wine ports, for software running in wine to use, much as we already add a binary of Wine Gecko.

Could you give me the exact set of steps to follow on my machine to reproduce the failure you experienced, so that I can verify whether I've succeeded in fixing it?

Failure resulted from:

  • sudo port install wine
  • winecfg
  • click on the popup that appears (hard crash killed my screenshot the two times I tried, let me know if you can't reproduce this & I'll uninstall mono to reproduce again)

I no longer get this popup after sudo ports install mono

Thanks! :)

Oh, so you are talking about the mono port. I'm surprised that's used by wine. I'm also reluctant to add a dependency on mono, because it is huge, has historically had problems building and has been packaged poorly by its developers, and the port is unmaintained. I'll try to look into this and see if using the Wine Mono binary mentioned above would also work.

Replying to jodi.a.schneider@…:

I suggest adding Mono as a dependency. Mono is expected for Wine:

This page says:

For Wine releases 1.5.3 and later, the Wine Mono package is recommended. For earlier versions, an official Windows release of Mono 2.10 is recommended.

Therefore, since all three wine packages are past version 1.6 already, in r128964 I've made the three wine ports use the wine mono package.
