64bit Manual Install

Hi Guys,

I have POL on my 64bit Arch Linux install. I have a 32bit virtual drive with a 32bit install of World of Warcraft, which runs like a dream. Patch 7.3.5 which landed this week, officially has begun the process of depreciating WoW as 32bit, a warning comes up saying that your system is out of date, yada yada yada.

So, to preempt the end of 32bit, I decided to setup a 64bit virtual drive using the manual install. Before I installed WoW, I wanted to setup CMST and GLSL in Wine 2.21 staging. When I went into Configure Wine, instead of a full screen I had what can only be described as a thin line on my screen where Wine's Configuration should be. When I go into Registry Editor, instead of the normal Registry Keys, I have blank folders with nothing inside them.

Is this a POL issue? A Wine issue (bearing in mind 32bit Wine 2.21 staging works)? Should I run the WoW install script to creat the 64bit virtual drive?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It could be a POL issue. The same thing happens to me on trying to create a 64bit virtual drive, any version of 64bit wine. Running Manjaro linux.
Crossover works fine, standard 32/64 wine works fine, 32bit POL wine works fine, 64bit POL wine, I get the thin line and improper setup of prefixes

Further reading leads to this post.

The libz issue is what was affecting me, the version of POL in Manjaro repositories still has it.
Going to install the git version from AUR :D
