Half-Life and OpenGL on CVSCedega [NVIDIA]

NVidia GeForce FX 5200

Hi. I have recently installed Half-life on both WINE and CVSCedega, using a tutorial found here. However, I find that I can't seem to run OpenGL mode on Half-Life, while the section in this tutorial about how to deal with the error is useless to me as doesn't even exist on my system. I compiled WINE with OpenGL support, while Cedega naturally includes OpenGL support, so I can't understand why this is the case.

I average 2500fps in GLXGears, yet in software rendering of HL I drop to a measly 4fps on Cedega and <1fps on WINE, not worth playing with at all. Does anyone else have any advice on how to enable OpenGL in half-life?
