Plain WINE (with the exception of the latest CVS sources) does not have DirectX 9 support nor can you install Microsoft's DirectX 9 package under it. Transgaming's Cedega is available for a small monthly fee at http://www.transgaming.com and will run Call of Duty. Cedega is a commercial version of Wine with DirectX 9 support.
If you are adventurous, you can download the WINE CVS sources (read the site for instructions) and compile them yourself. A few people have been working a lot on DirectX 9 support in vanilla WINE but most of the work has not made it to the binaries yet. You may or may not get Call of Duty to work using this method.
CPU Freak i have a similar problem and hope both of us will be solved...mine is:::
how do i define the windows drives in cedega(if i do, cedega won't run anymore ).because the windows drives are undefined, half-life won't "see"conterstrike, cod won't launch...PLEASE help.
and btw, i found a site where i downloaded cedega 4 free.anyone want the rpm, there is a site something like hard linux.google 4 it...the version works...
ok cpufreak i did it, and this is the howto, please post if it workz...in your user's home folder, there's a transgaming_drive link.follow the link, press up, and u should be in a directory called /../.transgaming then , edit config file, and define the windows drives like this :
"Path" = "/mnt/x"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "X drive"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"(if it's fat32, win95 if it's ext2 or fat16...)
remember, the partitions MUST be mounted...and do not try 2 replace c drive, even if u have win installed, it did not work 4 me...now, if this ain't working, do something like this :
on desktop->rite click->create new->link 2 aplication:
description = blablabla
command = cedega /mnt/path2cod
working dir = /mnt/path2cod
Remember, it is very important 2 set the working dir!!!and if the path contains spaces, it won't work(eg. /mnt/my games/cod).good luk.Remember 2 post if it workz.plz.NoLimitz.
and otchie, oddly enough, there aren't any...
