Macos – wineboot hangs and does not complete

macoswine

I'm having a strange issue with Wine on macOS 10.13.4. I have Homebrew installed and have installed Wine with brew install wine winetricks.

$ wine --version
wine-3.0

When I run wineboot --init > log 2>&1 I get a dialog box that says The Wine configuration in /Users/richard/.wine is being updated, please wait. The log file looks like this:

wine: created the configuration directory '/Users/richard/.wine'

When I killed wine64 with a SIGTERM after an hour, the following lines were appended to the log file:

wine: configuration in '/Users/richard/.wine' has been updated.
  • I did rm -rf ~/.wine before all this
  • WINEPREFIX is unset
  • Homebrew and wine are at the latest available version
  • wineboot, wineboot --init and wineboot --update all have the same problem

How can I get wineboot to complete without hanging?

Edit: I'm currently setting up a macOS 10.13.4 virtual machine to test if the same thing happens in there.

Edit 2: I've tested in a fresh macOS 10.13.4 virtual machine and I'm having the same problem. I've tried brew install wine (for Wine 3.0 stable) and brew install wine --HEAD (for the latest Wine 3.7), both have the same problem with wineboot hanging.

Edit 3: I think the log line 0009:err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out might be the problem, no idea how to get around it though.

Just found out that this is a known bug with the version from Homebrew, see https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/issues/26384. Workaround for now is to use the official version from https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html.
