Building WINE on Slackware64 multilib?


Hi all,

I'm getting ready to install Slackware64_13.1 (finally), and I may then install Eric's multilib packages.

The slackbuild for Wine at Slackbuilds.org states:

Quote:
NOTE: This will not build on a stock 64bit Slackware system, and we do not
support doing so with 32bit-compatibility packages. That doesn't mean
that it won't work - we just don't support it at all.
So, has anyone built WINE with the 32-bit compatibility packages? Does it work?

Thanks,

Yup, I've built wine 1.2 (Released recently) with the Multilib compatibility. I actually just built it yesterday. Am running 32-bit games on it. Works good enough.

I second the recommendation for Alien's package.

If you want to build from source, just use ./tools/wineinstall. It detects the 32-bit compatibility libraries and builds a 32-bit version automatically. Wine is one program where make uninstall works, so don't worry about that.

Thanks,
Please note that the version of wine hosted on slackbuilds is 1.1.44. wine 1.2 is the new stable version and I assume they will get around to updating it at some point.

But yes, they now say they support 64 bit. As mentioned you can find another place to download it, or wait, or build straight from the wine sources.

I built from the wine sources and it worked fine.

So. . . does that version need the 32-bit compatibility packages?

No, but it will only run 64-bit Windows programs.

You want this one, which does require the 32-bit compatibility packages:

You are mistaken, dugan.

The package in the "pkg/13.1" directory is to be used on 32-bit Slackware and will only run 32-bit Windows binaries.

The package in the "pkg64/13.1" directory is to be used on 64-bit Slackware with multilib and will only run 32-bit Windows binaries - in future I may build a package that also supports 64-bit Windows binaries, but not now.

Eric

PS - I built packages for Wine 1.2 some days ago but forgot to upload them. I will try to get them out soon.

And this, people, is what happens when you assume what's in the SlackBuild file, instead of reading it.

Thanks for the clarification, Eric, and for creating the packages.

Yep, going to do that now.
