Original OSNews Interviews A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews community to help with some questions we were going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux team, and the response was glorious and somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions to our own and sent them on over, and then we were surprised by receiving not only Aaron Griffin's responses but answers from various individuals from the team.

0. bin32-wine is 64-bit; wine is 32-bit.
1. 64-bit WINE will not run 32-bit Windows apps.

Wrong. Bin32-wine is NOT 64 bit of course (why would it be called bin32 then?) - it's 32 bit with a wrapper for x86_64 Arch. As to your second point, I have bin32-wine installed:

[molinari@Helios ~]$ pacman -Q | grep wine
bin32-wine 1.1.36-1

and I'm happily playing Morrowind on it ;)

The wrapping is the important part. Wine will generally not run, installed from the wine package (which you can make happen...).

All of the bin32 packages were 64-bit, last I knew. In a 32-bit system, there is no need.
