Wine.i386 on a X86_64 Fedora install


Hello,

Does anyone know if wine works on Fedora Core 64? I can install it via yum but it installs 47 rpm's which most of them i already have installed but the installed ones are .x86_64. So is it safe to install the *.i386 versions of these files and run wine which doesn't seem to have a 64bit version?

Thanks,

Chris

Wine needs the 32-bit rpm to the 64-bit installed counterparts, they are not duplicates.

Example command and results:
$ rpm -qa --qf="%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\n" '*libstdc*' | sort
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.x86_64
libstdc++-4.1.1-52.el5.2.i386
libstdc++-4.1.1-52.el5.2.x86_64
libstdc++-devel-4.1.1-52.el5.2.x86_64

Thanks for the reply! I have went ahead and just put the 32bit fedora version on. It bugs me that i have so many duplicate packages taking up space. Not that space is an issue anymore just the OCD in me. Anyways I will be putting wine on today and am crossing my fingers!! Can't wait to play SWG on my Linux Box!

Thanks,

Totally understand....... and yes I do agree far to many unnecessary duplicate package are installed by default. Some of course are needed for some 32bit applications but many are not need and just take up space.
