Hello everybody,

As I'm new to this list, first of all congrats for your work, and please excuse my bad English, my mother tongue is French.

I tried to use wine.SlackBuild (inteded for use with wine-1.0-rc2)  with wine-1.0-rc4, after having changed version number in the script.

Unfortunately after compilation, wine.SlackBuild stopped for a missing ChangeLog file to copy.

True, there isn't any in the archive I donwloaded from winehq.org. I should have checked the diff file on their website first: it shows Changelog is replaced by documentation/Changelog.Beta -- may-be they could have included a symlink to it but anyway...

Robby, may be you could test files existence in the archive before attempting to cp it, or advise the user to check their presence if he/she uses the SlackBuild with a newer version ?

As a workaround I just removed the ChangeLog token in the script then it built the package fine. Thanks !

Best regards from Paris, France.
