<SOLVED>WINE and NVIDIA 331 delete

Post by glhallway » Wed Dec 17, 2014 12:57 pm

I can't find the answer so I'll try a new post. I have installed 32 bit 17.1 had 64 bit 17 before, Wine ran fine on 17x64. Now when I try to install WINE on 17.1x32 I get message saying, " This will delete Nvidia 331". My PC is Acer Aspire 1.8x2 intel 2gb RAM Nvidia HDMI 256 VRAM. The reason I went to 32 bit is only 2gb RAM and everyone said that 32 bit would run better. I do like 17.1 in my opinion best Distro ever but I need to run some MS stuff for business and need WINE. Does anyone know of a solution to this or a work arround? If not then all I can think to do is go back to Mint17 64 but don't want to.

How will this effect the graphics if I just say ignore and install Wine?

Thanks

The problem here is a conflict within the package nvidia-libopencl1-{X} (where {X} has to be replaced with the version-number of the installed NVidia-driver).

To solve the problem take the following steps:

After having installed the NV-driver (as I understood this the case here) install the foliowing package:

Code: Select all

ocl-icd-opencl-dev
This will automatically remove above named package.
Now you can install wine without problems.

In case of updating the nvidia-driver you need at first un-install wine (this will not harm your existing wine-profiles), update the driver and repeat the above given steps.
