Wine3-x86.apk and wine3-arm.apk

Post by wisor » Tue Dec 26, 2017 2:45 pm

Hi Wine Community!
One day I found two wine 3 versions for android. Please explain how to use them.
I have an arm android device. I can install arm version but it runs only internal applications such as notepad, internet explorer or miner game. When I try to start other apps wine shows an error with unreadable symbols.
X86 cannot be installed on arm device. Is it like free version of Crossover?
Do you have any plans of development wine3 for arm android devices?
Maybe, are there any ways to tune-up wine3-arm for better compatibity, e.g. as Exagear?

It sounds like you already have it installed and working as well as it can. Wine does not do CPU emulation, so the ARM version cannot run x86 applications. Project Hangover is an attempt to get that working. https://wiki.winehq.org/WineConf2017#.2 ... _Hentschel

Please explain it in more detail. I'm not a programmer.
What is the usage of wine3-arm.apk? Is it made to run windows rt apps in arm-android?
Or is wine3-arm.apk made for running windows x86 apps in arm64 devices?
Is Wine3-x86.apk made for android x86 devices to run usual windows desktop apps?

Project Hangover, as I understand is for running windows x86 apps on arm64 devices. But why do wine-arm.apk installation environment include armv7i folder with wine files? What is the purpose and usage of this version of wine?

wine-arm.apk lets you run Windows RT ARM binaries on ARM devices.
It doesn't include a CPU emulator so it doesn't support x86 binaries at this point.

Please explain, how to mount/get access to internal storage and external sd card in your apk?
When I open "Run" menu in Wine.apk and press "browse" I can access /mnt/sdcard0 (..../sdcard1) but they are empty (not mounted).

This issue is possibly due to the current settings in the Wine APK.

I see there's a pull request on the Wine mirror.Which will of course be ignored.

Why does the android version have the virus

Trojan/Swisyn.ardb

When scanned with VirusTotal?
