Question Help needed with installing wine


Hi there!

Yesterday I installed Slackware 14.2 on my i5.

Now I wanted to build wine but ./configure stopped with

Code:
configure: error: Cannot build a 32-bit program, you need to install 32-bit development libraries.
Searching the wine homepage I didn't find any libraries. Slackpkg didn't find any wine stuff:

Code:
bash-4.3# slackpkg search wine

Looking for wine in package list. Please wait... DONE

No package name matches the pattern.

bash-4.3#
So, what can I do in order to build wine so I can go on playing with my beloved 3D modeller (moray)?

TIA

Gregor

AlienBob is kind enough to provide a WINE package,

As is Simone Giustetti,

Apparently your Slackware OS is 64bit.
If you want to use Wine (a 32bit program) you need to install "multilib for Slackware" which enables you to run, and compile, 32bit programs on a 64bit OS.
Read some:
https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:multilib
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/

Note that if you download my wine package, you also need to take care of its dependencies. Scan my ChangeLog.txt (http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac.../ChangeLog.txt) for "wine" and read carefully.

Thank you cwizardone and Alien Bob,

so I grabbed http://slackware.uk/people/alien/sla..._64-1alien.txz and invoked

slackpkg install ./wine-4.0-x86_64-1alien.txz

Now this is still running -- for >1 hour now, outputting lots of grep error messages. How can I check if everything is going right? I made two shots:

http://test.szaktilla.de/htop.png
http://test.szaktilla.de/pstree.png

Is it worth waiting some two hours longer?

Regards,

Gregor

Why not just
Code:
installpkg wine-4.0-x86_64-1alien.txz
?
Or
Code:
upgradepkg wine-4.0-x86_64-1alien.txz
if you have a version of wine already installed.

I think the installation is already broken, if slackpkg throws grep- and other errors. Sounds like a fatal mix-up of 32bit and 64bit binaries.

I wonder... gregors what version of Slackware did you install? Was it indeed a 64bit version, or actually the 32bit version but an incomplete installation (skipping packages instead of letting the installer install everything)?

The system I'm running is a fresh installation of slackware64 14.2 ("install everything"). During installation I chose to format the used partitions. So I don't think there is some mixture problem. Maybe it's because the package comes with various libs to be built ...?

Regards,

Gregor

Hi again!

After working through this thread and repeating the steps mentioned everything seems to work fine now. I think there was something going wrong during the "multilib conversion" mentioned in #2 (my system crashed while this conversion/update and I thought it had completed). After repeating those steps everything is working as expected.

Thanks guys!

Gregor
