Wine 1.4.1 fails to start in Slack 13.37


Hey everyone,
I feel like this is a slackware-specific issue (rather then a Wine issue) so that's why I'm placing it here. I tried to install Wine 1.4.1 (using the precompiled binaries from winehq) and found some strange behavior. I know there are some 32bit vs 64bit issues with wine, but I followed the advice from the wine webpage:

"If you just want to use Wine, there is no need to compile it using the instructions here. Just go to the downloads page and click the link for your distribution."

Anyway, install seemed to go perfectly fine. Then, I try to run wine (at least to see that it installed) and I get this strange set of answers:

Code:
bash-4.1$ wine
bash: /usr/bin/wine: No such file or directory
bash-4.1$ which wine
/usr/bin/wine
Ok weird. What kinds of things are in that directory?

Code:
bash-4.1$ ls /usr/bin/win*
/usr/bin/wine              /usr/bin/wineconsole  /usr/bin/winemaker
/usr/bin/wine-preloader    /usr/bin/winecpp      /usr/bin/winemine
/usr/bin/wine64            /usr/bin/winedbg      /usr/bin/winepath
/usr/bin/wine64-preloader  /usr/bin/winedump     /usr/bin/wineserver
/usr/bin/wineboot          /usr/bin/winefile     /usr/bin/winicontoppm
/usr/bin/winebuild         /usr/bin/wineg++      /usr/bin/winpopup-install
/usr/bin/winecfg           /usr/bin/winegcc      /usr/bin/winpopup-send
Ok cool, maybe I'll just try wine64 then:

Code:
bash-4.1$ wine64 Autorun.exe 
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 0000000000010000-0000000000110000
preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 0000000000010000-0000000000110000

preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00010000-00110000
/lib/ld-linux.so.2: could not open

(That Autorun.exe is the driver install file for a USB wireless card). So what is happening here? My system can't find wine (although it's there) and wine64 breaks with some kind of linking error. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hello,

To run wine on Slackware64 you must install the multilib

About the warnings, here is the solution.
