Perhaps I should add wine64 to the wine package for Slackware64.

So, here's what I've done up until now, i extracted the source to /root/wine64 folder. Next, typed in ./configure --enable-win64 and got lots of "checking.." outputs some say yes others no. Then one warning, it said: "configure: WARNING: prelink not found, base address of core dlls won't be set correctly." What's that mean? I'm not sure if i should go ahead and do make. Will i be able to uninstall Wine from pkgtool, if make works and installs fine?

I've stumbled on this link: http://www.slackwiki.com/Writing_A_SlackBuild_Script that will aid me whenever i get the time to make a Slackbuild script.

What does "out-of-tree build" even mean? What is git, and how does getting the source from there different than downloading it off winehq.org?

I haven't tackled that project *yet* but if I do I'll report back on what worked; or if you persevere, do post what you did exactly.
If time permits, i'll do what i can, but i'm not sure if this thread is the best place for it


PlayOnLinux has a very small 'supported software' list of mostly games, but i was not aware it can run multiple instances of wine. If that's the case it's supported software should match that of wine, right? On another note, when is MS gonna kill off silverlight, swear i only use it for Netflix anyways.

I am compiling a mixed wine64/wine32 package for 64-bit Slackware 14.1 today, let's see how that works out.

It seems to work. When I run "wine64 iexplore" then the 64-bit iexplore.exe is started. Wnen I run 'wine iexplore' the 32-bit executable is started. I also get a "Program Files" directory with 64-bit programs and "Program Files (x86)" with the 32-bit Windows programs in my ~/.wine directory.

I am now polishing my wine.SlackBuild so that you can disable the addition of wine64 with setting of a single variable, if you have no need for 64bit Windows programs (it makes the wine package 22 MB smaller because the 64-bit Gecko engine aka Wine's own Internet Explorer does not have to get added).

You should expect new wine packages for Slackware 14.1 and -current (32-bit and 64-bit with multilib) tonight. The SlackBuild will of course be included with the upload. I am not going to add an option to create a pure 64-bit Wine, I think that is pointless since even Microsoft adds WoW64 to its 64-bit platforms.

New wine packages are now available with the x86_64 packages having a WoW64 shared configuration.
See http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/wine/

Let me know how 64-bit Windows programs work for you.

Note for re-compilers: If you define DO_WINE64="no" in wine.SlackBuild it will create an "old-style" package with just the 32-bit wine.
