Installing wine64 in slackware/salix64-14.0


I want to install wine 64bit but according to this page (http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64) I need to compile it. I am using salix64-xfce-14.0. But slackware distribution does not exist on this script (http://winezeug.googlecode.com/svn/t...l-wine-deps.sh) on that page (other distributions are mentioned). The script is needed to install wine64. How can I manage this? Thanks for your help.

On wine's wiki they provide a list of dependencies that are required for running wine, which also happen to be the same ones for building it (except the obvious like a C compiler).

However, Slackware provides all the required dependencies for wine from a full install.

Also, may I ask why you want to build wine? http://winehq.org/ already has a wine package for Slackware.

As I mentioned earlier, I want to install wine in 64bit-salix install. The salix-64 repository does not have wine and I believe the packages on http://winehq.org/ location are also for 32bit only. This page http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64 is for wine on 64bit installations and it states that one has to compile it. I hope I have understood this correctly.

I thought Salix had backwards compatiblity with Slackware...hmmm...

If it is, the project does support the 64-bit version of Slackware as well:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine...kages/1.6-rc4/

I found that link by following the winehq downloads page for the Slackware one here:
http://www.winehq.org/download/

So, you want to run 64bit ms-windows applications in WINE, correct?
If you want to run 32bit ms-windows applications you will need 32bit WINE and Alien Bob makes a package available. However, to run it in 64bit Slackware you need to install the multilib packages, also made available by Alien Bob. I don't know if these will work with Salix.

You will have to install a multi-lib environment and then wine-x86_64. Salix is binary compatible with Slackware so I would suggest searching for Alien Bob multilib and also his wine package.

A quick search of the Salix forum shows that it is possible to install multi-lib and wine on Salix.

So follow these instructions and things should start to look OK for you.

I am trying to run 64bit version of this application in linux: http://svn.softwarepublico.gov.br/trac/invesalius
I installed wine64 from this page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine....6-rc4/x86_64/
On running command 'wine64 invesalius-3.0.beta4-win64.exe' I am getting following error:
Quote:
/lib/ld-linux.so.2: could not open
I am not able to find package for this. Searching for ld-linux.so.2 on the site pkgs.org shows glibc-2.12-1.107.el6.i686.rpm which is already installed on the system (ver 2.15-x86_64-7).
I want to run 64bit version of this application on linux (thru wine or natively). Does slackware full install has all dependencies needed to compile this application since binary package is available only for fedora/ubuntu? Which method would give best performance for this resource intensive application?

I'm a bit lost on your message. You say:

glibc is a part of a full Slackware installation as we previously recommended and you said it was already installed on your system, but then you say:

By "this application" are you talking about glibc because you said you already have it installed. If it is glibc, as previously stated glibc is part of a full Slackware installation so there wouldn't be a need to grab a package for it from any site other than a Slackware mirror.

I am currently trying on salix64 installation. Windows64 version of Invesalius application is not running with wine64 on this installation due to ld-linux.so.2 error.

The questions are:
1. What is the best way to have Invesalius-64 running on salix64?
2. If this is not possible, will it be possible to run invesalius-64 on full installation of slackware-64.
3. By which method can I get best performance of Invesalius on linux?

Thanks for your help.

There appears to be a Linux version:

http://svn.softwarepublico.gov.br/tr...alius/Download

And here is the windows 32bit version running in WINE in Slackware64:

There seem to be 2 options: try to install the deb file or try to compile from source provided. Which option would be better?

Can't you just download the source and do

Code:
./compile --enable-win64
I did this by mistake once and it built wine64 instead of wine, which as pointed out above is not compatible with 32bit programs. But since this is one of the first things mentioned on the official wine64 page you posted maybe I should assume you have already tried this?

I want to install "64bit" version of Invesalius application in Slackware64.
There are utilities to convert packages from one Linux distribution's packaging system to another, but I've never tried it. Perhaps someone here who has had experience with that can help.

Just out of curiosity, is there something the 64bit version of Invesalius can do that the 32bit version cannot or is it you just want to run a "pure" 64bit system?

I was trying to have maximum efficiency for this application and 64bit is "highly recommended" on their page: http://svn.softwarepublico.gov.br/tr...alius/Download

I managed to install 64bit version on salix64-xfce-14, but I did not find it much faster than on 32bit. It also needed multilib to be installed, because it did not install on a "pure" 64bit system.
