Description Michael Cronenworth 2010-05-12 20:18:32 UTC
Description of problem: wine will not execute.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): wine-1.1.44-2.fc12 (both 32-bit and 64-bit version)

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install wine-core.x86_64 wine-pulseaudio.x86_64 wine-common
2. winecfg
1. yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install wine-core.i686 wine-pulseaudio.i686 wine-common
2. winecfg
Actual results:
Wine does not work.
$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/mcronenworth/.wine'
wine: could not exec wineserver
$ winemine
wine: could not exec wineserver
$ wine asdf
wine: could not exec wineserver

Expected results:
Working wine.

Additional info:
I removed ~/.wine before creating this bug report.

Downgrading to wine-1.1.38 results in wine working again. Perfectly. Upgrading back to wine-1.1.44 from updates-testing yields the same results as my description at the top of this bug report.

$ rpm -q kernel

Comment 1 Andreas Bierfert 2010-05-12 20:35:36 UTC
This is not a bug. Either install the wine meta package which pulls in everything needed for wine to run smoothly, or in your case at least also install the needed wine-wow package.

Comment 2 Michael Cronenworth 2010-05-12 20:46:24 UTC
If wine-wow is required for wine-core to function, then it should be a Requires: otherwise "yum install wine-core" results in wasted hard drive space.

Comment 3 Andreas Bierfert 2010-05-12 21:01:43 UTC
wine-core is not meant to be installed standalone. wine-core cannot require wine-wow because of the different package sets which are needed on 32bit and 64bit boxes (please take a look at the spec) where both wine-wow(x86-32) and wine-wow(x86-64) conflict but wine-core(x86-32) and wine-core(x86-64) need to be installed in parallel.

I know that this seems a bit strange but hence the wine meta package.
