Installing RCT1 in linux?


Since I am going on vacation and I wanted to take my laptop with me, I decided I wanted to see if Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 would install.

Its the normal version (no addons) on CD.

The wine website stated that it would install and play perfectly.

As excited as I was I tried to install it.

The install went fine but the game doesn't function right.

The menu comes up but when you try to select a level the screen flashes for a few seconds and then the game restarts.

This shows up in the terminal:

Code:
err:winediag:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo The Mesa OpenGL driver is using software rendering, most likely your OpenGL drivers haven't been installed correctly
fixme:d3d_caps:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for GL vendor 4 and card vendor 0000.
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x33f734,0x00000000), stub!
fixme:dsalsa:IDsDriverBufferImpl_SetVolumePan (0x16b678,0x16b598): stub
Its wine version wine-1.1.44

Any ideas?

I am running Gentoo Linux.

Well, the message is telling you that the game requires hardware rendering, and that you're using the (usually slower) software rendering method.

The suggestion made by Wine (in the message) is that you review your video driver settings.

If you're using the default X-system drivers for your hardware (which is the default for Gentoo and most other distributions), you might want to see if there is a propitiatory driver available for your laptop's video hardware. (My laptop uses a nVidia chip-set, and the default noveau driver doesn't do 3D rendering as well as the propitiatory nVidia driver.)

Dang that presents the issue then.

I am using the VESA driver for my Intel Graphics.

I have spent weeks trying everything I could think of and following several tutorials trying to get the Intel driver to work with no luck.

If you want to read on that post:

Don't get me wrong I love linux but sometimes it can be a pain to near impossible to get a good driver working. :-/

The driver is even specified to work with my hardware.
