It should work with the latest. I think the last time I tried it was with 1.1.21 or so, but it should still work.

Circumvent?
Yes, the legality on each country is different on that regard. To use a nocd patch can be legal if you are the rightful owner of the original media. You will have to acknowledge the legality in your country of course.

How?
Open an xterm or similar terminal emulator, write the command I gave you above: "glxinfo | head", then paste the output here.

See above statement (include more enthusiasm)
Just a quick note I forgot on the previous post: this of course only applies if you don't go running wine as root, because root has god-like permissions. As long as you follow the healthy rule of operating with the minimum privileges required you'll be safe. So, use root only for administrative stuff and never to run wine.

"Circumvent" just means get a no-cd patch? I own the game, I'll try a different patch then I guess.

I don't think I know how to run it as root so I'll be fine

Thanks again!

The glxinfo output seems fine, so you are ready to go. You only need no-cd patches if the game in question has some copy protection scheme that wine can't understand, which are probably all/most of the advanced ones. In this cases the game won't work even if you have the original cd in your drive. That's why you need a way to bypass that check.
