Wine 32-bit on a 64-bit CentOS

Post by qbrick » 2010/03/20 19:22:13

Hello, I'm considering setting up a CentOS box as my home desktop. I just looked up the FAQs and started an extensive search with Google, but found no definite information, whether wine 32-bit can be installed on a 64-bit CentOS system. Before I start, I need a confirmation if and how this can be done.
Thanks a lot.

Can be install.

But why are you trying an emulator like third party package before searching it in the main repositories ? Could you more informative on this ?
It is always best to look for a package in the [b]main[/b] repositories [b]first[/b].

There are other many [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories]Additional Resources[/url] repositories available for various software.

I agree with you about the main repositories. However, from what I've found out, wine is not part of the main repos. Wine stable 1.0.1 is part of the EPEL repository, and this just as a 32-bit package. But since I have a 64-bit CentOS 5.4 lying around, I wonder if a 32-bit wine is easy to install on such a system (dependencies).

There is no 64-bit WIne, and the 32-bit version will work on x86_64 if you have the default 32-bit multi-arch compatibility packages installed. I use [url=http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxlinux/]CrossoverOffice[/url] so have no direct experience, but the EPEL i386 package [i]should[/i] work. It is available in their x86_64 repo.

Good afternoon,

I'm beginner in usage of CentOS 5.4, and beside of this I installed on 64biti.
First of all I update yum:
>yum update
and everything works fine and is installed ok.

Second step it was to install wine:
>yum wine install.

Begin of this moment appear my problem, because how I search on INTERNET, installation of wine on 64biti .rpm is very difficult to understand to install.

Somebody from this forum can offers me an real support to install it ? beginning to download (links) and final with installation.

I will appreciate this, because I'm sure your advice will be very useful for other people which need to install wine on 64bit CentOS.

I waiting much early is possible yours advice.

Thanks in advance for understanding and support.

Best regards.
