Thread: wine 64?

    Default wine 64?

    I was about to install wine using yast. Yast found the package easily but there were 2 versions. One for 64 one for 32 bit systems. I am running a 64 bit AMD Athlon on an Asus a8v MB so naturally I checked of the 64 bit version. Well it came back with a missing dependency and the option to install it broken. I can't imagine why I would do that so I canceled the installation. Interestingly the 32 bit version had no dependency problems. But I'm running a 64 bit machine.

    Do I install the 32 bit version?

    Do I try to resolve the dependency for the 64 bit version?

    I'm sure someone has been through this.

    You should resolve the dependencies for the 64bits version. It works
    fine with no changes. My son was running a 10.3 32bits on its machine, I
    installed from scratch an 11.2 64bits. I just copied out his ~/.wine
    directory. everything worked again, with no change.

    Yast tells me I need wine-geco but it won't find or instal it for me. The only option it gives is to install broken!

    my understanding was you only needed the 64bit version to run 64bit
    Windows apps - for me the 32bit runs stuff fine as I've not any
    64bit win apps

    For the record, I tried to install wine in several versions, and I had the wine repo added the whole time. None of the versions, 32 or 64 seemed like they installed but when I typed 'winecfg' into a terminal and it failed it told me the exact command to type to install it and it worked that time. I have no idea why, but it did. I would type the command here but I dont recall it and I am currently on my Windows partition. it was something like 'sudo zypper wine' but I have a feeling I am missing something...
    One of them is still functional... The other is a marble!
