I wanted to share my recent experience in this area. I've been using a 32 bit OS and moved over to Porteus/Slackware64. One thing I depend on is WINE, both for building (wineg++) and running windows compatible software. I tried the packages above and ended up going to straight to alien's multilib libraries: http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/
see also:http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/dok ... e:multilib
I got all the multilib packages from alien and applied txz2xzm. Alls these modules came out to be quite large (~200mb). Last thing I wanted was to bulken up my porteus setup, so I started throwing away modules i didn't think i needed. Ended up with (~60mb):
I got the latest 32 bit wine from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/fi ... 0Packages/
and I was now able to do everything i could before in 32 bit wine/linux world. If you are missing a 32bit library while running a 32 bit app, install alien's multilib libraries, even the whole thing as suggested in his guide. If you are still missing a library, check out packages from the slackware 32 bit package tree.
