I write this post, because I couldn't find anything like this in the forum. After long long long searching I found a small tiny guide:

http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=8366

often you will find small extra .diff patches in the games db on http://www.winehq.org/ and here is the way how a Gentoo user can easily patch his wine to work with the application (the Version Number can be exchanged to the used one e.g. 0.9.43):

needs to be done as root:
Code:
cd /usr/portage/app-emulation/wine
ebuild wine-0.9.39.ebuild clean
ebuild wine-0.9.39.ebuild unpack
cd /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/wine-0.9.39/work/wine-0.9.39
patch -p1 < <path_to_patch>/patch1.diff
patch -p1 < <path_to_patch>/patch2.diff
cd -
ebuild wine-0.9.39.ebuild compile
ebuild wine-0.9.39.ebuild install
ebuild wine-0.9.39.ebuild qmerge
echo app-emulation/wine >> /etc/portage/package.mask

Thanks! I always wondered what the best way was to do this.

There's a simpler way: using "autopatch" feature of portage-bashrc-ng (from GECHI Overlay)

  1. First, install and setup app-portage/layman (if it is not already installed)
  2. Add the Gechi overlay:
    Code:

    layman -f -o http://gechi-overlay.sf.net/layman.xml -a gechi

  3. Install portage-bashrc-ng (unmask it if you're running a stable profile):
    Code:

    emerge portage-bashrc-ng

  4. Edit the configuration file
    Code:

    nano /etc/portage/bashrc-ng/bashrc-ng.conf

    uncommenting the following line
    Code:

    #PATCH_OVERLAY=/usr/portage/local/patches/

  5. Enable autopatch:
    Code:

    eselect bashrc-ng enable autopatch

  6. Put your patches in /usr/portage/local/patches/, naming them with the following syntax: ${PATCH_OVERLAY}/${CATEGORY}/${PN}/${PN}-*.{patch,diff}.
    In your case, for example the patch could be /usr/portage/local/patches/app-emulation/wine/wine-0.9.39_mypatch.diff.
  7. Emerge the package(s) 8)

Wow. Thanks for the info. That will save me some time with making ebuilds just to roll out patches...

This looks really useful; but I can't get portage-bashrc-ng to emerge. It keeps telling me there are no ebuilds, not even masked ones.

The layman -f -o http://gechi-overlay.sf.net/layman.xml -a gechi worked fine and it said the overlay was added to the system.

Any ideas on what I need to do?

couldn't you always copy the ebuild file to a local tree, and add the appropriate epatch line? that's what i do for eve online, when it needs patches for sound bugs.

Assuming I even knew how to do that, probably. I've used Gentoo for quite a while, but not at the level of making my own ebuilds. I'm needing to patch Wine to get Supreme Commander working though, so I found this thread.

Code:
mkdir /usr/local/portage
mkdir /usr/local/portage/app-emulation
mkdir /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine
mkdir /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine/files

cp /usr/portage/app-emulation/wine/wine-someversion.ebuild /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine
cp somepatchfile.patch /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine/files

nano /etc/make.conf
(check to see that PORTDIR_OVERLAY is set to /usr/local/portage)

nano /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine/wine-someversion.ebuild
(find the src_unpack section and add 'epatch "${FILESDIR}"/somepatchfile.patch', under the other epatch lines.)

ebuild /usr/local/portage/app-emulation/wine/wine-someversion.ebuild digest
emerge =wine-someversion


hope this helps :)

Add the line
Code:

source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf

to your /etc/make.conf, if it's not present.
