How do I install Wine on Slackware64 with both 64bit wine and 32?


I'm wondering as to how am I supposed to install wine on a x86_64 Slackware install.I read up on the beginner's guide that in order to be able to be able to run wine I'd need to setup a 32 bit compatible Slackware.But this conflicts with what's said on https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/wine/ as it says that I should not compile it with 32 bit compatibility.So how am I meant to install wine on a Slackware64 system?

You'd really probably be better off using Eric's pre-compiled package. The x86_64 version is built to support both 32bit and 64bit Windows apps. You just need to have libav and OpenAL installed and use his convertpkg-compat32 script (included with the multilib packages) on at least the 32bit package of OpenAL (I don't think it needs it with libav, but I might be wrong) and install that as well.

Thanks! I had been stuck with this for quite a few days already before asking about it here.I will install both libav and OpenAL 32 bit.

Bass madrigal is correct.

FYI, you don't compile Wine in alienbob's 32 bit compatibility mode. You build both 32 and 64 bit wine in your native environment. I've posted about this on a thread a few hours ago if you're interested.

If you need to compile OpenAL soft though, you do need to do it seperately in 64 bit, and 32 bit mode, and install the libs at separate locations.

Might be better off using alienbob packages for these if they are available.
