Half Life Freezes on Menu Click


I've been installing and messing around trying to get my GLX to work. I finnaly got it. I have the newest nvidia drivers, 2.6.6 kernel, and when i run half life i have two problems: One is half life has some weird looking menu, like it's multiplied. I'm thinking it's a screens issue but i dont know. Second is when i click on an item in the menu other then QUIT, it freezes, all of X freezes. Any Suggestions?

i assume we are talking about wine here ?
try a wine CVS snapshot.

i find the wine releases tend to work 1 week, then not the next for things like half-life

The newest versions of wine have been crap, u should try wine-20031212, it seems to work the best right now. Tho, not as fast as the newer ones I believe, but it actualy works. Give it a shot. Get it from here, ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/wine/development/
