Yes, other 32-bit (chess) programs run well! 

As mentioned, the six 32-bit and 64-bit chess engines (Hannibal, Houdini & Rybka), worked with Suse 11.3. You can test it easy yourself .. just download (links in my first post), unzip and start the *.exe in terminal with wine. Then type "uci" and you get some program info. Type "go" for calculating a move from the start position and "quit" to exit.

BTW, the 32-bit Chessbase download version Deep Fritz 12 (http://www.chessbase.com/products/deepfritz12/index.asp) installed without any probem!  :D Unfortunately the gui looks a bit scrambled, but it works too (almost).  :?
