=== Problems ===

=== Wine port ===
The first problem you'll run into is missing libpthread, libc and libm. However, they aren't missing, they are just one lib, libroot.
 
AJ won't fix Wine to support libroot, understandable as it would lead to some ugly checks in winegcc/winebuild.
 
Haiku won't add dummy libs because the POSIX Standard doesn't force them to have those libs and it's the nature of Haiku to only have libroot.
 
  
Also note that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not supported, so you need to modify LIBRARY_PATH.

=== Build ===

It can be installed via HaikuDepot and also includes a Haiku specific display driver!
To get around these problems, do:
 
  
ln -s /system/lib/libroot.so /system/lib/libpthread.so

== What Wine needs from Haiku (as of ~2012) ==
 
 
== Running ==
 
If you worked around all of the problems while compiling you can close all open applications and try to run Wine:
 
 
 
LIBRARY_PATH=$LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/buildtree/libs/wine ./wine cmd
 
 
 
It won't work and your system will become unstable, you need to reboot.
 
The reason is that Wine expects for most mmap calls to succeed, but also that mmap returns the requested memory address.
 
Haiku doesn't mmap 0x7ffe0000 for us with errorcode 0x80000000 (B_NO_MEMORY).
 
This ends in an nearly endless loop of Wine trying to map memory. You can see this with:
 
 
 
LIBRARY_PATH=$LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/buildtree/libs/wine strace ./loader/wine cmd
 
 
 
With gdb I analysed which part of the Wine code does that:
 
 
 
LIBRARY_PATH=$LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/buildtree/libs/wine gdb ./loader/wine
 
 
 
It is reserve_area in libs/wine/mmap.c that tries to halve the size of the mapping until it succeeds, which will never happen.

Haiku

Haiku is an open source operating system inspired by the Be Operating System. Haiku is fast, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful.

Wine port

Haiku meanwhile has ported Wine: github repo

It can be installed via HaikuDepot and also includes a Haiku specific display driver!

For more information see: My progress in porting Wine by X512

What Wine needs from Haiku (as of ~2012)

  • in general: LDT support, m(un)lock, pthread_attr_setstack, a fix for the Address Space Layout problem
  • dbghelp: Elf32_Ehdr, Elf32_Shdr, Elf32_Phdr, Elf32_Dyn, DT_DEBUG, DT_NULL, SHT_NULL, SHT_NOBITS, SHT_SYMTAB, SHT_DYNSYM, SHT_DYNAMIC, STT_NOTYPE, STT_FILE, STT_OBJECT, STT_FUNC, SHN_UNDEF, STB_LOCAL, ELFMAG0, ELFMAG1, ELFMAG2, ELFMAG3, EI_CLASS, ELFCLASS32, ELFCLASS64, PT_LOAD
  • network related: ESOCKTNOSUPPORT, ETOOMANYREFS
  • ntdll: SIGIO, an improved ucontext_t
