well the 27% error is somthing alot of people seem to have..
cvswinex seems to be better at running steam, but wine can do it with a bit of work
take a look at http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...p?articleid=32
goto your fake windows drive ( ls -a in your home directory for the wine dir, then fake c drive, program files, steam)
and delete ClientRegistry.blob
and then restart steam
that should help
fyi you need openGL 3d rendering X unless your pc is fast enough to use software rendering (although i dont recommend this)
