I had a play and downloaded the ia32 compatibility libraries from Slamd64 and they allowed me to install and run 32bit wine.

slackass... if you get gnucash to install on slackware64, you will be a god. I just wish there was some way to statically include all the gnome dependencies into gnucash AND to install it into /opt WITH gconf bundled up so that it doesn't pollute my /etc

I just copied my Slack64 pkg tester system to another drive so I can do multiple "hi-speed bork>hose>reloads" :-)
Don't know if I can do it but I'll give 'er hell.
My linux learnin' is similar to the way a monkey learns to get a banana by pushing the yellow button.

so:
Off to the yellow button I go! :-)

Update to wine in Slackware64-current, you only need the following Slamd64 packages

aaa_elflibs32-12.2.0-x86_64_slamd64-1
gcc32-4.3.3-x86_64_slamd64-2
xlibs32-7.3-x86_64_slamd64-6

:/ I know slamd64 is a slackware port... but isn't mixing packages a bit on the risky side? At the VERY LEAST, we should at least recompile the slamd64 package for slackware64. Of course you all know this already, but anybody reading in my not. Also I jumped my schedule last night and shrunk my archive partition to install slackware64 The /lib and /usr/lib do have some files in there but I didn't look too deeply into it to see what they were, I was in a rush.

I'm surprised at how resizing actually isn't that hard if you have plenty of spare room and don't have to get the math on the bit/sector conversions exactly right. Shrunk the reiserfs file system by -30G, then repartitioned for a 25G at the end of it, then resized the filesystem again to fill the extra 5Gs. Reiserfs is just old now though... I used ext4 for slackware64 partition

I don't pretend to be well-versed in understanding the differences between 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Therefore I'll ask the question:

Do I have to reformat my disk partitions to use 64-bit?

is this an official 64bit version of slackware or a 64bit build done by some on else ??????????
