Wine has a builtin version of DirectX, however Direct3D 6 may not be so well supported. v6 was released at a time when not many people were working on games support in Wine - Cedega may have better support. You cannot install native DirectX I'm afraid.

Hey, mchitrakar, I'm glad you got it working. I think, however, mhearn's reply pretty well sums it up. However, if your game runs in windows on some later version of DirectX, chances are that it will run in wine. However, if it runs only with DirectX 6, then you'll have to research other options.

If you can run on a later version of DirectX try:
Code:
WINEDEBUG=+loaddll wine <command to run your program.
This will list each dll as it loads and unloads. Once you find the dll that causes the problem you can then add
Code:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="[name of dll withou .dll]=n,b"
to your command line to call the game. Do this after you copy the appropriate dll to your .wine/[name_of_fake_windows_drive/windows/system directory. Once you get it to run, then you can add the dll's to the AppDefaults section of your config file.

Good luck.

I'm still struggling with my apps.

If you have your video card setup with 3D support, you can try OpenGL in windows games. Though you need to make sure WINE was compiled with OpenGL support.

Thanxs for all the advices, guys!! But I think i should make myself little more clear.
Problem is that the setup of game (nemeses evil 3) did not happened, and I thought it must be
DIRECTX6 problem. so, DIRECTX6 problem is my own guess.
What happeded when setting up the game was that it couldnt find "ikernel.exe" file. But there is a file
called "ikernel.ex_" in the game folder, but no "ikernel.exe" file. So. I tried to rename the ".ex_" to
".exe" but to no avail. So, I thought about this directx6 .??? do anyone has any idea about my
problem? Thnkxs you guys.

WOW!!!! I've searched high and low on Google and on this forum, and even posted some new threads, looking for answers to my questions about wine. I decided to do a search for one of the threads I started and came across this one, and it has answered a lot of my questions. Now I can't wait to get home so I can try fixing my wine problems on my Fedora Core 2. I can't thank you guys enough.

Windows files ending blahblah.xx_ are compressed files. Renaming them will not work. All you need to do is find where the file needs to be and type extract filename. I'm sure WINE has its own msdos, so you can do it there. I think Linux has an extract utility too.

xp1o1d5, did you run WINE config script after you compiled it. Also does PATH include the directory where the execution file wine is located.

Where might the windows files ending in .xx be cause i dont see any of them! Also i didnt compile it i did the apt-get install wine and it downloads and installs it, itself. I think that its pointing to the execution file for wine!

xp1o1d5, In my previuos post at the first paragraph explains about. If you have not used windows 3.1 and using the extract program, then forget it and I'm not going to repeat myself.

I rather compile programs because it makes it easier to fix problems with anybody. People that use pre-built packages are on their own. You will have to use some detective work finding wine and make sure its executable. I'm sorry.
