[SOLVED] Can't install Wine on amd64

Postby MeV on Wed Aug 10, 2011 1:35 pm

Hi,

I've got my first dependencies problem on LMDE.
I would like to install wine and tried both methodes listed in this topic : viewtopic.php?f=141&t=76928

Each time, I've got the same error :
wine is not installable because ia32-libs is not installable,
ia32libs is not installable because libc6-i386 is not installable,
and libc6-i386 is not installable because it depends on libc6 which is in the wrong version (2.13-10 instead of 2.13-7).

The problem is that when I try to force libc6 version to 2.13-7, synaptic wants to uninstall many packages.
Some of them are really important such as apt, bash, linux-headers, linux-image, ... :shock:

The worst is that I don't know from which repository comes this version 2.13-10 of libc6. In synaptic, it appears to be a local package...

I don't know what I'm supposed to do to correct the problem.

Did I do something wrong ?

Thanks for your help

PS : I'm tracking the "Mint Latest" repo but on first update I was tracking "Debian testing"

Weird, I installed it on the wifes computer no problem.
I downloaded all the deb files form HERE
for the Binary packages amd64 packages and installed them all no problem.
Mind you I had to start with installing libwine-unstable_1.3.21-0.1 first I think it was that one or else it came up warning me to install which package first.
Did you try and get it through the repos or did you download the debs instead?
(just in case you didn't try this method)
Maybe check out wine and ask them also if you still have issues, wine forum just some added ways of trying to help you find an answer.
Plus that source list looks huge :shock:
Maybe this will help with your source list http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=76556
unless you want sid in there for some other reason.

Thanks for your answer samriggs,

I will have a look at the wine forum but I don't think it is a wine related problem but just a dependencies problem with libc6.

For my sources.list, I checked in the thread you gave me and I have the same repos.
I have some repos deactivated like "Debian testing" which I use before or Debian security Sid because I had a problem with 2ManDVD : the package was broken in Testing and I had to install it from Sid (anyway it did not install anything than 2mandvd and 2mandvd-data packages from this repo).
And I have also activated source repos to have the changelog in Mint Update.

I'm not saying that everything I did is OK because it is not : I have this libc6 problem.
But I don't unterstand why this version of libc6 had been installed and why I can't come back to the old version.

Postby samriggs on Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:32 am

ya its a weird one I just checked and I have libc6 version 2.13-10 installed on mine but I just updated and am running a 32 bit machine the wifes is a 64 bit but has version 2.13-7 hmmm maybe I should tell her not to update if its gona mess up wine that way, but mine works fine with the updated libc6, maybe its just a 64 issue. very strange but I had wine installed before it updated on me so maybe thats why its ok.

I just googled this here is some others having issues also maybe you can get more help here also by asking
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=65911
an ubuntu one but might be helpful
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1711629
Either way it seems like a bug in the machine with that version as I googled it it seems a lot of folks are having issues with this version for various things besides wine, hopefully this will get fix, one person actually did a reinstall and that fixed it, but you shouldn't have to go that far.
Hopefully the debian forum can help out since it came from testing.

You should have testing active as that is the final resting place for all packages before moving to stable. So even with sid active you still need testing. The system will always take the newest version unless you make it do otherwise.

from a terminal run
sudo apt-get clean

Then activate testing in your list.

sudo apt-get update

Download all the 64bit debs into a folder from the repo Sam linked above then from a term change into that folder and run
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

You will get errors but let it run

then run this command
sudo apt-get -f install

This will fix the missing bits.

If wine will still not install open Synaptic and click on the errant libc6 and use the force version command from the menus -> package -> Force version. When there are multiple versions available it will let you force an older one without uninstalling half your system

good luck

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]


Then I tried to force version 2.13-7 of libc6 using synaptic but, like I said in my first post, synaptic wanted to remove nearly all packages from my system.
So I tried to downgrade libc6 from 2.13-10 to 2.13-7 using aptitude. He first wanted to remove wine but I said no and he came with another solution :
Code: Select all
$ sudo aptitude install libc6=2.13-7 -V

I don't know why synaptic and aptitude don't use the same solution to resolve conflicts but, in this case, aptitude is way better !
Now I have Wine working fine and, when I launch synaptic, he don't ask to upgrade libc6 to 2.13-10.
I think the update has been made because, at this particular moment, no package installed were in conflict with libc6 2.13-10 but then I tried to install wine and it depends on ia32-libs which conflicts with libc6 2.13-10.

Am I wrong ? (I'm new, I want to understand what happened...)

Anyway, many thanks guys for your help

Re: [SOLVED] Can't install Wine on amd64

One last thing in this thread, often the simplest solution to wine problems is to install Playonlinux. Playonlinux downloads and installs it's own versions on wine and runs them from your home folder and allows multiple versions of wine. You can nominate a wine version for each executable. I have some old 1995 Directx3 games that run beautifully under Playonlinux using wine 1.2.5, but will not work with wine 1.3. Playonlinux has both 64bit and 32bit versions, but I have had better results with the 32bit version. Installation inside of Playonlinux can be a bit convoluted but you get there in the end.

Just for future reference.

I think you analysis if the libc6 dependencies is correct. LMDE is meant to be run on testing so when you dip into sid or experimental you have to be careful not to introduce dependency hell. You could have solved the issue (maybe) by getting a newer version of ia32-libs from up the tree, but then possibly introduce new problems. Many people run sid as their system, but they also have to accept breakages as way of life. Testing can break too, just not as often. Anyway I am pleased you have resolved your problems.
