Crossover 12.1 and 64-bit ROSA 2012.Fresh

I am using ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 64bit

Thank you for your how-to (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3660 how to install 32-bit software in 64-bit ROSA.
I'd like to use Crossover 12.1 (commercial 'branch' of wine) which needs a whole bunch of 32 libraries.

Following you steps only one but important 32-bit-lib is missing.

Is there any place to get a version of: libnss_mdns 32-bit library ?

Crossover provides some informations about the lib here: ... ibnss_mdns

Thank you in advance!

I believe your file is ... 1.i586.rpm

I fear you could not install this rpm via urpmi, it's possible informing you that that lib already exists,
the OS means about the 64bit one, in that case, you can download the file and install it via "rpm"...


Code: Select all

rpm -ivh /local_path/nss_mdns-0.10-11-rosa2012.1.i586.rpm
If refuse to install, you can add also, some other options like --nodeps --force
