Package installation issues.

I've just implemented a clean install of Slackware.

I've downloaded wine 1.4.1 and tried to install it:

dave@Slack:~$ su
root@Slack:/home/dave# installpkg ../public/wine-1.4         
wine-1.4-x86_64-1alien.tgz  wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz
root@Slack:/home/dave# installpkg ../public/wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz 
Verifying package wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz.
Installing package wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz:
# wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator)
# Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API
# on top of X and Unix.
# Homepage:
Executing install script for wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz.
Package wine-1.4.1-x86_64-1sg.txz installed.

root@Slack:/home/dave# wine
bash: /usr/bin/wine: No such file or directory
root@Slack:/home/dave# exit
dave@Slack:~$ wine
-bash: /usr/bin/wine: No such file or directory
Seems okay, but when I run wine it says "No such file or directory", but it is there:

dave@Slack:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/wine
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7104 Jun 20  2012 /usr/bin/wine*
What's going on?

Wine is 32 bit application, so you need multilib

It would have been nice to get a clue as to what was wrong. :+)

Well, do it enough times and you'll realize that what you saw *is* the clue. :-D

But whoever packed this particular version of wine has given it an x86_64 tag. So the OP may have gotten misled by that.

wine-<VERSION>-x86_64 generally also includes the "wine64" binary which is wine for 64-bit applications. Most programs run from wine tends to be 32-bit which is what the "wine" binary is used for.

Programs that don't require multilib and run well with wine64 include 7Zip and Putty.
