With more info, we may be able to get to the bottom of this issue.
Hi, and thank you for your help. I now see that *any* 32-bit program I install reports the same error - "Cannot execute binary file" - so this isn't a Wine issue. It seems that the multilib process hasn't worked out for me, but I'm completely unsure why that might be so, given that I followed every step religiously, and my system is pretty much a stock Slackware, full install. The only significant system change I made was to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.33.
The question now is, how do I restore the system and start again, or troubleshoot to find the problem? The multilib process didn't report any errors, except for those expected errors Alien Bob mentions.
I know I haven't given much information to you to be of help here, so don't trouble yourself over it, but a pointer to how I might output the various steps of the multilib process to a log file would help, if anybody could advise.
