winex 3.2 "could not load graphics driver x11drv" on debian unstable

Hey all,

the subject pretty much says it all. i'm running debian unstable and winex 3.2.1, for debugging messages i opened up point2play through a konsole window, and thats the error i keep getting everytime i try to install a game through that interface. trying to install programs using the command line (ie 'winex3 /mnt/cdrom/install.exe') gives the same error:

'Could not load graphics driver x11drv'

over and over and over again. anyone know how i fix this or figure out what the prob is? my knowledge of X11 is extremely low.

thank you for your help.

Since you have point to play, just drop them an email, or contact their support. Means you're a subscriber, so you might as well make 'em do work for your money

can you run any 3d accelerated things at all? try glxgears, if you can't then you have a bigger problem which relates to your video drivers.
