Actually, changing your sources.list in apt to "unstable" ,
and running  " apt get install wine" and "apt get install winesetuptk"
should have your wine up and running..
Then run wine from a user dsl shell, and configure it to your hardware,
and location of your chosen "fake windows"  directory.

I'd like to see a "winedebs.dsl" extension in the future..
That might install and run OK on everyone's system,
rather than the typical extension install without pre and post configuring..

I installed wine-0.9.22.dsl and it created a lot of files but when I try to run it (from the terminal window) I get message wine not found. I've tried running it as "su" but no difference.

I am running DSL 3.1 installed on the hard drive, read all the comments here but still can not get it to run.

I am trying to run MetaTrader 4 ( such as IBFx, ) in DSL.

In another forum ( ) it says it need Wine 0.9.22 but it also need WineTools ( ) which is not in the depository.
Can someone help to make it available ?

If DSL can be make to run MetaTrader 4 ( MT4 ), I think it can have a subset of followers since DSL is very light and can be run from old PC.
