Hi there,

I've installed Ubuntu on my Acer Chromebook 13 CB5 and it has an nvidia tegra k1 processor. When I attempt to install playonlinux it says there are missing dependencies. I think it's talking about wine but I cannot seem to install wine on to my system - I just get this: 

E: Unable to locate package wine1.3
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'wine1.3'

If anyone else has manged to get theirs to work in a similar situation then any help would be appreciated.

Thanks very much!

It's not clear to me whether this processor in x86 compatible; Otherwise you can't run Wine on it.

Yeah. As far as I know, you cannot run Wine on a chromebook, because of it's architecture.

moved to other topic due to playonlinux:i386 on ARM architecture, not playonlinux on ARM
