I am trying to install the build dependencies for Wine, so that I can do a bit of hacking with it. I am running Fedora 22, 64-bit.

I have installed the 64-bit dependencies successfully using dnf builddep:

# dnf --version

# dnf list wine
Available Packages
wine.i686                                                           1.7.47-1.fc22                                                         updates
wine.src                                                            1.7.47-1.fc22                                                         updates-source
wine.x86_64                                                         1.7.47-1.fc22                                                         updates

# dnf builddep wine
Package ImageMagick-devel- is already installed, skipping.
Package alsa-lib-devel-1.0.29-1.fc22.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Package audiofile-devel-1:0.3.6-6.fc22.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Package autoconf-2.69-20.fc22.noarch is already installed, skipping.

And now my problem - I want to also install the 32-bit dependencies, but cannot get it to work. Here are the things I have tried:

# dnf builddep wine.i386
no package matched: wine.i386
Error: Some packages could not be found.

# dnf builddep wine.i686
no package matched: wine.i686
Error: Some packages could not be found.

# dnf builddep wine-1.7.47-1.fc22.i686
no package matched: wine-1.7.47-1.fc22.i686
Error: Some packages could not be found.

# dnf builddep wine --target=i686
Error: unrecognized arguments: --target=i686

I have even tried some deprecated yum commands:

# yum-builddep wine --target=i386
# yum-builddep wine --target=i686
# yum-builddep wine-1.7.47-1.fc22.i686

The above result in:

 --> Already installed : zlib-devel-1.2.8-7.fc22.x86_64
 --> Already installed : unixODBC-devel-2.3.2-6.fc22.x86_64
 --> Already installed : sane-backends-devel-1.0.24-14.fc22.x86_64

How can I get dnf builddep to install the 32 bit dependencies for wine? The dnf command does not appear to support a --target option.

One obvious workaround is to get the list of packages individually and install them with dnf install; however, I am curious to know if dnf builddep can do it.

  • So has this ever been solved? Commented Oct 10, 2015 at 18:03
  • @David no, it hasn't been solved. I even tried to download the packages individually and had problems. If I recall correctly, dnf could not find some of the 32 bit binaries. The next step was to build those from source, but I never made it that far. I think I am going to wait for Fedora 23 and see if things improve.

Red Hat bugzilla suggests to use setarch i686 dnf builddep .... According to the listed output this seems to work as expected.
