Which distro allows me to use WINE 64 bit?


I would like to install WINE to enable me to run 64 bit windows applications under Linux.

Which distribution do you suggest is, in your opinion, best suited for such a purpose? I normally use Debian, but I am aware that Debian doesn't offer the latest WINE versions and that it only allows the 32 bit version of WINE.

However, I stand to be corrected, and would be overjoyed to learn that I can still use Debian and get the best 64 bit WINE version.


Thanks.

I may be wrong on this (probably am), but I am not aware of ANY distro that has WINE64 in it's repositories, they all have the standard 32-bit.

However, they do have Instructions on how to compile WINE64.

For example Ubuntu from version Precise has package wine1.4-amd64 which can run 64 bit Windows programs.

It appears Fedora also has 64-bit Wine.

Code:
$ yum list wine*
Loaded plugins: langpacks, remove-with-leaves
Available Packages
wine.i686                 1.6-1.fc19                 updates
wine.x86_64               1.6-1.fc19                 updates
[...]

Debian offers amd64 and i386 versions of Wine, as far as I can see. So the easiest solution if you are running Debian would be to just backport the version you want to use (1.6 is the current stable, 1.7 the development version): https://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation

Thanks.
Fedora 19 has 64bit for wine. im sure fedora 18 did too, but i never looked into it. i just did a yum search wine and there were just as many 64 as 32 plus loads of noarch for things like the fonts and basic commands.

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum search wineLoaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, refresh-packagekitLoading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * fedora: ftp.usf.edu * livna: rpm.livna.org
 * rpmfusion-free: mirror.nexcess.net
 * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.nexcess.net
