COD 2 (wine) and/or DRIconf ATI 64 bit Issue


Hello,

I've used Ubuntu before for running a server but those days are now over. Last week I decided to use it as my primary OS for home use. I've run into three problems all related with running windows programs on linux. I should start out by saying I'm running Ubuntu 64x on my computer.

First Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare lags on my computer. I understand this because it only runs smoothly on lowest graphics on my windows partition.

Second Team Fortress 2 refuses to launch. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=9901 tells me to try to launch it with no intro and that command just doesn't seem to be taken by terminal or the shortcut. Linux can't find steam.exe even if I browse to that folder in terminal (though steam itself launches fine by the shortcut).

Third and probably the most important to me Call of Duty 2 is stuck on a black screen when launched. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=9643 tells me to run DRIconf and run a few smaller tweaks. When I run DRIconf on my computer it outputs:

Quote:
Could not detect any configurable direct-rendering capable devices. DRIconf will be started in expert mode.
So I thought perhaps the driver wasn't installed correctly but fglrxinfo tells me:
Quote:
display: :0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series
OpenGL version string: 3.3.11627 Compatibility Profile Context
so I checked to make sure the latest driver was installed via
Quote:
sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates
and it came out with:

Quote:
fglrx-amdcccle-updates is already the newest version.
fglrx-updates is already the newest version.
The thing that really gets me is World of Goo runs fine on my system (linux native) and that needs direct rendering to do so. I know that seemed long winded but I wanted to show that I have tried to solve it and I'm still at a loss. Any help would be appriciated.

AMD uses it's own configuration tool for their Catalyst drivers.

DRIConf is for the XOrg Driver. DRIConf will not work with proprietary drivers like FLRGX and Nvidia.

could you give me some helpful hints on how to configure it to run Call of Duty 2? I can open the Catalyst Control Center but do not see a "Enable S3TC texture compression" as it says at http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=9643

Do I understand you right that you are running those programs from a Windows partition? You don't have installed them into Wine?
If that my be what causes your problem, try it again with installing them into Wine.

The Catalyst drivers support S3TC without any extra configuration.

why do you think Call of Duty doesn't work? It's just a black screen. If Catalyst Drivers support S3TC does that mean its automaticly on
