Winetricks 32/64 bit ID


I have Alien Bob's wine package (2.21, upgrading to 4.0) and the recent winetricks is seeing it as a 64 bit package and complaining that most of it's tricks only apply to 32 bit, blah, blah.

Is there a smart option or alias to make it cop on that I've missed? I've had my head in different clouds and want to keep it there if possible; some one of you gamers must have hit this?

Do you actually have a 32-bit wine installed? Is your wine prefifx 32-bit?

Is it complaining about the WINE package or is it complaining about the prefix?

To create a 32-bit prefix, you do:

Code:
export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix
# Do this when /path/to/prefix does NOT exist
WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
And then you do the following before doing anything with that 32-bit prefix:

Code:
export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix

Got this one thanks.

It turned into a bit of a nightmare because I'm rusty. I have Alien Bob's wine package for current, but my glibc libs were a version behind. There's no way to stay still in Current so I updated from last December's to April (= now). But I didn't grab the compat32 stuff and glibc-2.29 overwrote glibc-2.28-multilib :-/.

So /lib/ld-2.29 (the 32 bit one) was AWOL as were any symlinks, and my 32bit /usr/bin/wine went all pouty. You know the nonsensical errors you get from that scenario:-/.

The rest of the compat32 can wait until I have internet back. I'm running the pc off a wifi hotspot on my mobile for Irish reasons.
In the 1970s, they built this estate in a field. They planted trees destined to become huge (plenty of them) and stuck in phone cables on top of the muck where the pavements were going to go. No sinking of cables, no conduit, just bare cables. The pavements came on top with no back filling:-//. 44 years later, the trees are big, and the pavement had to be relaid because the tree roots were pushing it up. So they split the old pavement slabs, lifted them, taking the phone lines with them. Of course last week, new slabs were laid, so they will probably be carved open to get the phone lines in. And the phone line can't go where it was, because the electric cable is there, and they can't go near that.
