Configuring ATI Radeon X1700 at Slackware 12.0 | Wine problems


Right lads, here's the story:

I was trying to install RTCW-ET on my Slack.
My lappy:
Quote:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M66-P [Mobility Radeon X1700]

Linux lappy 2.6.21.5 #2
Tue Jun 19 15:22:48 CDT 2007
i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
Downloaded ati-driver-installer-8.39.4-x86.x86_64.run -> can't find where it was from though.
I installed it and it seemed to be ok. When I do the fglrx comands I get:

Quote:
rita@lappy:~$ fglrxinfo
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.2)

rita@lappy:~$ glxgears
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
4661 frames in 5.0 seconds = 930.110 FPS
4600 frames in 5.0 seconds = 916.228 FPS
4640 frames in 5.0 seconds = 926.805 FPS
4640 frames in 5.0 seconds = 926.476 FPS
I think it starts to go wrong here, because it should display my ATI and not the MESA thing and the FPS should be higher...

My xorg.conf:

Anyways, since installing ET was just for fun and avoiding window$, I moved on.
But now I need to install wine and run some window$ programs and I have this output when running winecfg:

tried to add a program (notepad) and configure sound and got that ^^
The tutorials at their homepage are not helping...
Ideas lads?
cheers
