I am trying to install Wine in a new Ubuntu 5.10 installation. I got repository errors that led me to the site and info below so I copied  the 2  Breezy lines from “budget--  “ into the sources.list and I got the 2nd set of errors.

How can I install Wine or would  CrossoverLinux obviate the need for Wine? They are similar but should I expect similar problems?

Thank you.



The WineHQ APT repository at sourceforge is now officially obsolete - it
was slow, would time out frequently, and could only handle one version
of a package at a time.

If you have one of the following lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list,
you need to remove it:

deb http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt binary/
deb-src deb http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt source/

Instead, use one of the following two lines:

For Ubuntu Dapper (6.06):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main

For Ubuntu Breezy (5.10):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt breezy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt breezy main

Budgetdedicated.com has nicely provided us with the new APT repository,
which has a ton of bandwidth and allows for different distributions, as
well as more obvious upgrading (to go from breezy to dapper, simply
change the word breezy to dapper just as you would with the official
repositories).


 2nd set of errors:

W: Couldn't stat source package list http://wine.budgetdedicated.com breezy/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/wine.budgetdedicated.com_apt_dists_breezy_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://wine.budgetdedicated.com breezy/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/wine.budgetdedicated.com_apt_dists_breezy_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
