WINE x86 running on RPI4

Post by salvaliebana » Wed Aug 19, 2020 12:43 pm

HI!! I am from Pi Labs.

I would like to show you BOX86 running wine x86 on RPI4 and also ask you all a development request!!
We need scaling support on Virtual desktops
. It would require just multiplying the pixels! please, add that on wine for retro legacy!!!
Best regards!! stay FOSS! :)

Cool project, didn't realize there was an accelerated wine on arm option.

Hello,
I tried Twister OS from PINN on my RPI3B+
The themes are awesome-looking but box86 does not work. In fact the kernel is compiled 2G-2G so wine:i386 does not start, even wrapped in box86.
- Is it possible to reupload a 3G-1G on PINN? (I am trying to recompile the kernel atm but it is quite time consuming for an uncertain result)

I tried a workaround with mikerr qemu stretch image(availlable on PINN)

Problem here is that I cannot install a wine386 bundle on the main arm FS.
I then tried about everything :
1) From debootstrapping :
A) deboostrapped and installed wine386 in chroot
B) ran box386 wine386 in main system ==> wine cannot find its files (obvious)
2) Tried installing box86 within chroot.
As expected, does not work. Does not even compile
3) toying with dpkg --add-architecture i386 on main system. --> wine386 refuses to install its deps, even after adding debian repositories.

How can I get a box86+wine running on raspbian? Is there a standalone wine-i386 availlable that I could push on my arm?

Thanks in advance!

you need to recompile the kernel to add the feature. I would not even recommend it, rpi3 is a very bad hardware for this task. well, rpi3 is a very bad hardware for any task
