wine on debian

I'm trying to run wine on a amd64 installation of debian sid. Neither the amd64 or i386 versions seem to work.

The 64-bit verson gives me this error:

[reub2000@reub2000 ~]$ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Adobe/Adobe\ Digital\ Editions/digitaleditions.exe 
** Debian / Wine: Multiarch Instructions **
 
This is the wine64-bin helper package, which does not provide wine itself,
but instead exists solely to provide the following information about
enabling multiarch on your system in order to be able to install and run
the 32-bit wine packages.
 
The following commands should be issued as root or via sudo in order to
enable multiarch (the last command installs 32-bit wine):
 
  # dpkg --add-architecture i386
  # apt-get update
  # apt-get install wine-bin:i386
 
Be very careful as spaces matter above.  Note that this package
(wine64-bin) will be removed in the process.  For more information on
the multiarch conversion, see: http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO
 
(okay)
 

The i386 version gives me this error:
[reub2000@reub2000 ~]$ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Adobe/Adobe\ Digital\ Editions/digitaleditions.exe 
wine: '/home/reub2000/.wine' is a 64-bit installation, it cannot be used with a 32-bit wineserver.

I don't believe that wine is stable on debian sid yet.

I'm running a stable version of WINE on my Debian SID, so what makes you think it isn't stable?

If one follows the directions laid out in this post - »dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
one would have a stable WINE environment.

1.4.1(current stable wine) compiled very easily on my hybrid squeeze(stable running some testing, compiled, and unstable packages). The Debian package is just too old for me(1.0.x). Try grabbing the source from WineHQ and building. I have had better luck with support for certain things, both with Debian and Ubuntu(back when I was trying it out).
