[CentOS] kindle app on CentOS 7?

Older version(s), e.g. 1.17 of Kindle for PC worked fine on wine (on my
Ubuntu 18.04 VM), but some of the later versions didn't. I was using it for
DeDRM, and since I wasn't smart enough to figure out the correct
incantation to make later versions work, I chose a different approach. I
can tell you what that was if you care.

I used Ubuntu because I've never had any luck making things work in Wine on
Centos, possibly because RH/Centos only ship 64-bit wine and Calibre and
Kindle for PC are 32-bit. There's a (somewhat outdated) HOWTO on Apprentice
Alf's blog about doing the kindle on Ubuntu setup that I followed, and it
was close enough to let me get it working. I don't have a clue about
whether 20.04 is still close enough, or not.

Good Luck!
