Hey all, my 12.04 install gets more and more stable every day I update it, and most of my annoying problems have disappeared.
I'm trying to install Wine, as I want to try and get SAPGui working under it (school gives me a Windows installer and an OS X program...nothing for linux). Anyway, I went to Synaptic, and noticed that Wine wants to install a LOT of 32 bit dependencies...making me think I'd be stuck with a 32 bit version of Wine. Not a huge deal, but why?
I went to the Wine pages, and couldn't really find much. This page, and specifically the "Ubuntu Way" section, points out that 12.04 has multiarch support, which could cause problems when building 64 bit Wine from source.
Anyone have any luck? I'm sure I could just get by with 32 bit Wine, but I'd rather know why this doesn't work, and why the Wine pages say that building 64 bit under 12.04 may ruin "your ability to build 64 bit programs."
Maybe I'm reading the pages wrong. Can someone clarify?
