wine on amd64?

Asked by Guillermo Gutiérrez on 2006-05-25

Is it really impossible to run wine on an amd64?

I can confirm that my k8 can run crossover-pro (also cedega) and Access 2000 so I think building a wine-static version will work for us.

That link should aid you in your installation and configuration of Wine on a 64-bit Debian system. According to the website, Debian is more problematic then other 64-bit os's when it comes to installing Wine. I hope this helps you with your situation. Good luck and please keep us informed.

I've just done whatever about dapper is at into a dapper amd64 and current edgy amd64 with the same output:

terrex@belinda:/home/terrex-archive/debian-incoming/wine-0.9.16$ LDFLAGS="-L/lib32 -L/usr/lib32 -Wl,-rpath,/lib32 -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib32" ./configure
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... gcc -m32
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

gcc -m32 didn't work :S
(in current edgy OOo is uninstallable because ia32-libs is also uninstallable)

I think that a big wine-static statically linked will workaround and it'll get working in debian and ubuntu. What do you think?

To have win64 support on 64bit architectures you need to compile wine with --enable-win64.
To have win32 support on 64bit architectures we need to do something else.
There are bugs on LP for this as well.
