Hi everybody,
i'm running wine 1.2 on opensuse 11.3 64bit.
Trying winetricks ie6 or winetricks ie7 result in an installer error dialog:

"This installation does not support your system architecture (32/64bits)"

and obviously closes.
Other 32bit programs run perfectly (i.e. UltraVNCviewer)

Is there any way to make wine act only as a 32bit windows on a 64bit machine?

These are the packages installed:
wine-1.2-4.1.x86_64
wine-mp3-1.1.39-1.pm.12.1.i586
wine-32bit-1.2-4.1.i586
wine-gecko-1.0.0-6.1.x86_64

Don't install 64 bit Wine.

You need 32 bit gecko.

Although this question is very old, I thought I'd reply to the post since I had exactly the same issue with openSUSE 12.1 but have solved it. I couldn't find an answer anywhere else on the internet so this is to save other people spending time solving it like I just had to.

In openSUSE, the bulk of the wine tools is contained in the 'wine' package and not the 'wine-32-bit' package so removing the 64-bit wine package will cripple everything. Also contrary to the answer above, a 32-bit gecko package does not exist and is not needed to solve the issue.

All that is required to fix this it to define the environment variable:

export WINEARCH=win32

before ~/.wine is created for the first time.

This prevents wine being structured as a 64-bit installation and allows winetricks to work properly.

O.

I am going to be shortly putting together a 64-bit machine. I will
install pclos. Should I put in this command
"export WINEARCH=win32" before I get Wine from the repository, and if
so, is it supposed to be in some particular
directory, or can I just write it from my home user, and does it have to
be as a superuser? Since I don't have the
history of this thread, and some others also may not, I would appreciate
some background here.

No. It's an environment variable; you set it at the command line as a normal user before creating a wineprefix.
