What does not
What was not tested
Native quartz, qcap and gdiplus.
The updater simply opens a web page. This must have been changed at Sling's (DISH's) end.
Upgrading Wine deletes necessary registry entries. This can be avoided by running wineboot after the upgrade, and before running SlingPlayer.
You can also disable this by running
echo disabled > ~/.wine/.update-timestamp
Tested in Ubuntu 12.04 under Wine 1.5.12.
You should now have a working SlingPlayer!
Note: A number of new bugs occur in Wine 1.5.13+. It is recommended to hold on to 1.5.12 to run this application.
