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:
before ~/.wine is created for the first time.
This prevents wine being structured as a 64-bit installation and allows winetricks to work properly.
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.
