Installing wine in slackware
i got slackware 13.37 64bit and i'm trying to install wine-1.3.29-x86_64-1sg.txz. I cant seem to figure out how to do it.

I don't know of any 64 bit wine packages, I could be incorrect but you may have to try to build it yourself for 64bit, or use a miltilib system.

If there is a 64bit wine package, make sure you use that one if it's what you need.

Well first you're going to need Alien Bob's multilib packages:

Or simply (as root in a terminal) type:


lftp -c 'open ; mirror 13.37
Then go to the directory where you put this. Assuming you didn't change directory already it should just be:

cd 13.37

upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t?z
Then you have to change directory to the folder slackware64-compat32 which should come with it (if it doesn't the page gives more information on how to obtain the files in the folder slackware64-compat32).

cd slackware64-compat32
Then just upgrade the files in there:

upgradepkg --install-new *-compat32/*.t?z
Then after you've downloaded Wine (which it seems you already have), go the the directory you've placed that in and do:


installpkg wine-1.3.29.bla.bla.bla.txz
