I note that wine 3.0.1 is now available in epel (I installed it yesterday from epel-testing - looks like it has been promoted). It installed with no apparent issues.
Using the same version of wine on Ubuntu Mate 18.04 I can create a 32 bit environment by deleting the default ~/.wine directory, issuing the command export WINEARCH=win32 and then running winecfg. This produces a ~/.wine structure compatible with 32 bit programs. If I try the same on my newly built CentOS 7.5 install with wine 3.0.1 I get
~/.wine is created but is empty. I tried WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg and it simply created an empty ~./wine23. Same error message.

[ken@taylor15 Desktop]$ export WINEARCH=win32
[ken@taylor15 Desktop]$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/ken/.wine'
wine: '/home/ken/.wine' is a 32-bit installation, it cannot support 64-bit applications.
My searching has turned up a lot of information about wine on Ubuntu - which works, OLD and irrelevant stuff about building 32 bit wine on CentOS 7 and a bunch of FUD from WineHQ claiming that there is no such thing as 32 bit in CentOS7. The last claims were branded BS on this forum when I asked some years ago and I HAVE been running 32 bit programs under wine on CentOS 7 for years.
Bottom line... I cannot update my production workstation due to the dependency issue shown above.
I cannot exclude the offending library/package as that breaks a lot of other updates.
What I need to learn is:
1 - Is it possible to run 32 bit programs in wine 3.0.1 on CentOS 7
2 - If so, how?
I moved to CentOS 6 back in 2010 when Ubuntu 10.04 would not support my dual monitor, separate X screens configuration. CentOS 7 dos not support it either but I have developed a VMWare based replacement. I really like CentOS but I am getting frustrated and depressed. I am tempted to chuck it all and move back to Ubuntu
Can anyone point me to some wine salvation?
