Wine on 64bit

I am trying to install wine on my College Linux, and i have an AMD athlon 64 and when im installing wine i says
Wine: Intel Unixes. Please, PLEASE read the README or else Wine probably
Wine: won't work for you.
does that mean that only intel people can use wine?

Rep: Reputation: 30 IS possible but I know that it isn;t easy to do. Gentoo used ot have a guide on it in their documentation, but I can't find it any more. If you search Google, oyu may be able to find something about it. I know that there

Just by searching Google, you'll find quite a lot on the wine-users mailing list (like this one), and on the wine-devel mailing list (like this one). AFAIK, it may involve recompiling a different kernel, and involving some other quite complex stuff. You may want to check if your program is compatible with Wine before you do all of that though!


P.S Welcome to LQ!!

Wine works on my AMD64

I don't know anything about College Linux, but it works on my machine using any Debian derivitive. I'm in the process of setting it up on Gentoo (AMD64) now; we'll see. It's easier if you use a 32bit OS/kernel. Chrooting is a hassle. When they say "Intel" I think they actually mean "Intel or Intel compatible," which AMD is.

Good luck.
