Question LFS+BLFS on 64bit - Now want to have WinE


Hello!

I use LFS and a lot of BLFS right out of these books. According to that I only have /lib and /lib64 as a symlink to /lib.

Now I need to use wine for some apps and I don't know what I have to set up for that. I just don't want to blow up my whole Non-multilib LFS for one application.

Is there a way to easily add the missing 32bit-compatiblity for Standart-LFS Systems?

Could you please help me with that?

Thanks a lot!!!

Not without recompiling everything :\
You shouldn't have a sym-link to lib64 to lib with the standard LFS book. (it's not supported. Try CLFS Multilib version for that.) Try to build WINE as a 64bit app, it still might run 32bit apps, because WINE's translation of the win32 api doesn't rely on anything outside of the wine tree, so it's possible that a 64bit version of wine can indeed run 32bit apps without a multilib distro. I think you can run 32bit apps with 64bit version, but nice the other way around, ie: 32bit wine won't run 64bit apps. (I could be entirely wrong on that through)
