Getting wine to work in Slackware64 (13.0)


I cannot for the life of me get wine to run properly on Slackware64. I've followed Alien's guide (http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...kware:multilib).
Every time I try to install steam for example, I get this error:

err:wincodecs:PngEncoder_CreateInstance Failed writing PNG because unable to find libpng14.so.14
fixmele:CoCreateInstance no instance created for interface {00000103-a8f2-4877-ba0a-fd2b6645fb94} of class {27949969-876a-41d7-9447-568f6a35a4dc}, hres is 0x80004005
err:menubuilder:convert_to_native_icon error 0x80004005 creating bitmap encoder

I'm still fairly new to Linux so please be understanding.

the very first line of your error message gives a string hint about where the problem is.
if you look at the end, it's telling you it can't find libpng yadda yadad.

Now, it's been ages since i've used slack... but in most distributions, when you are trying to compile a program, what you need is the seperate development ( -devel, -dev ) package.

Another tip: after you install your new libpng-dev, make sure to run ldconfig after you are done. Slackware tends to ( amazingly enough ) cut you NO SLACK in doing things!

I feel for ya. Installing wine... on slack.
Makes my blood pressure go up just thinking about it

Slackware has no -dev/-devel packages since it includes development headers along with the original package (as opposed to splitting them arbitrarily against upstream wishes).

Where did you get that version of WINE? libpng-1.4.3 is included with Slackware 13.1, but libpng-1.2.37 is included with 13.0 (and this is an incompatible change...programs must be recompiled to support one vs. the other). If you grabbed a 13.1 package from Alien Bob or elsewhere, you would have to recompile it (or find a binary compiled for 13.0). Alien Bob has a 13.0 wine package here in the event that you did accidentally grab the package for 13.1.

I actually just grabbed it from WineHQ. I grabbed the lastest version without thinking I'm using an older version of Slackware. I'll try the link you suggested right now to see if I can finally get this to work! I've been trying for two straight days now.

EDIT: Okay now I feel stupid, I can't for the life of me get this to install. Tried to untar then ./configure and nothing.

Assuming you grabbed Alien Bob's package here you would just have to navigate to the appropriate directory containing the newly downloaded file and run
Code:
upgradepkg --install-new wine-1.1.29-x86_64-1alien.tgz
as root. That is a precompiled Slackware package (to be installed using pkgtools -- ie installpkg/upgradepkg) and not a source archive. Alternatively there is a SlackBuild at slackbuilds.org if you want to compile from source.

Thank You!! I've gotten a lot farther now. It appears that I missed something during the multilib converstion:

errrocess:create_process starting 64-bit process L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe" not supported on this platform
errrocess:start_wineboot failed to start wineboot, err 193

Any ideas?

Mind that 64bit wine does NOT support 32bit applications and vise versa; You need to get a 32bit wine on a multilib-bed 64bit Slackware to get it to run 32bit win-applications. If you need to run 64bit win applications, you need to get a 64bit wine.

They can be installed together, but there are some tricks involved to get that to work properly.

Makes sense, I believe the Alien files from T3 slider are 32 bit though if I'm not mistaken.

EDIT: For kicks I tried to install the i486 version hosted by Alien, and same error pops up. Also tried to run 32dev.sh (before running the wine installer) from compat32 and still nothing.
