Thread: Wine problems

  1. #1

    Angry Wine problems

    Hi,

    I'm new to OpenSUSE and need some help with WINE. I have installed it as per the instructions on the OpenSUSE help guide (Wine - openSUSE). When I try and run iTunes setup from a terminal at the root login, using this code:wine /home/louise/Download/itunes64setup.exe

    I get this error:

    linux-eqln:~ # wine /home/louise/Download/itunes64setup.exe
    Trying to load PE image for unsupported architecture (AMD-64)
    errrocess:create_process starting 64-bit process L"Z\home\\louise\\Download\\itunes64setup.exe" not supported on this environment
    wine: Bad EXE format for Zhome\louise\Download\itunes64setup.exe

    Please help! If anyone has other suggestions for getting iTunes up and running or just syncing an iPhone in OpenSUSE, please let me know.

    Hi Louise, and welcome to the forum.

    Haven't tried iTunes myself in WINE, but I believe WINE is 32bit although you can install it on a 64bit openSUSE. I would suggest you need a 32bit version of iTunes to have a chance of running it under WINE.

    I agree AFAIK Wine is 32 bit only.

    And if you look at the WineHQ - Wine Application Database
    iTunes sucks big time

    We already know that though

    Could you run windows in Virtual Box and go that route?

    Thanks for all your tips. I did try an iTunes 32bit version and it installed. But the installation does suck... which is mentioned on the Wine forum. I'll try the virtual machine.

    I'm basically trying to sync my iphone. So if there are any other suggestions please send them through.


    Thanks again.

    An XP virtual machine did the trick here. You''l face a couple of nuisances
    re. sharing the USB connection but it's usable.

    Thanks Will,

    I have installed VirtualBox and now get the error:
    Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Re-setup the kernel module by executing

    '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

    as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

    Any suggestions?
