Description Michael Cronenworth 2010-05-12 16:23:09 EDT
Description of problem: The 32-bit and 64-bit packages for wine-core share the /usr/bin/wine link. This causes problems if someone has both arches installed, but then uninstalls one arch. The /usr/bin/wine link gets deleted.

wine should consider using the alternates system.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): wine-1.1.44-2.fc12 (both 32-bit and 64-bit version)


How reproducible: Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install wine-core.x86_64 wine-pulseaudio.x86_64 wine-common
2. yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install wine-core.i686 wine-pulseaudio.i686
3. yum remove wine-core.i686 wine-pulseaudio.i686
4. $ wine
  
Actual results:
Wine does not work after an arch package is removed.

Expected results:
wine should continue to work. The work around is to "yum reinstall wine-core" but this is not acceptable.

Well this is not an alternatives case. But you are right, this needs to be fixed...

Comment 4 Robert Hancock 2010-05-12 20:07:10 EDT
This still doesn't work properly. winecfg files to run:

wine: '/home/rob/.wine' is a 32-bit installation, it cannot support 64-bit applications.

Running any 32-bit app with wine fails with the same error. Using wine32 works, except for this error:

wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe"
err:process:start_wineboot failed to start wineboot, err 2

Having a separate wine and wine32 does not seem like a proper solution as likely a lot of scripts (like winecfg) are hard-coded to call wine, not wine32. It would be best if the wine app could auto-detect somehow.

Somehow 32-bit and 64-bit wine can co-exist in one directory if you start with a fresh 64-bit .wine directory and then start a 32-bit wine instance. This might need to be filed at bugs.winehq.org if it hasn't been already as it is a separate bug.

Comment 20 Robert Hancock 2011-02-05 11:17:31 EST
The solutions, I believe, are either:

-if you already have a 32-bit wine prefix that you need to keep, only install wine i686 packages and not any of the x86_64 ones

-if you want to start a new wine prefix (rm -rf ~/.wine) then you can just install wine.x86_64 and it will install both 32 and 64-bit wine support
