WINEARCH=win32 broke

Post by KenSharp » Sun Oct 28, 2012 1:55 am

As of Wine 1.5.16:
$ rm -rf /tmp/eggs ; mkdir /tmp/eggs ; WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/tmp/eggs wineboot -i
wine: WINEARCH set to win32 but '/tmp/eggs' is a 64-bit installation.
From the Ubuntu PPA.

I haven't had chance to compile myself yet.

what happens if you don't create /tmp/eggs manually with mkdir and let wineboot do it?

You need to let Wine create the directory. http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29661
