I was one of several people that downloaded the crossover office and crossover games installers when they had their free download day. They installed very easily on my Fedora 9 laptop and worked pretty well. Today however, I attempted the same installers on my x86_64 Fedora 10 machine and it took some research and work to get it going.
If you try to run the installer, it will say that you do not have an x86 compatible machine and it cannot continue. However, what you can do is install enough i386 libraries to trick the installer into thinking it’s in an x86 environment. After googling through a lot of forums I found some X libraries, and then basically compensated for each error message thereafter.
Here is my (so far) comprehensive list of i386 libraries you need:
Also note that glibc will bark out a lot of errors that i386 conflicts with i686, but it seems to work. A lot of these were pulled as dependencies on others. You can install crossover office with out mesa/glitz libraries but it will complain that you have no OpenGL, so then most games probably won’t work, if not all until you install mesa and glitz for i386.
I got sound to work by installing the i386 package for alsa-plugins-pulseaudio. I also installed the nvidia lib for i386 so my nvidia card would get recognized. Everything is working now.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
