Wine, OpenGL and Nvidia. Third plea for help.


This one is really getting me down I bought an nvidia card to avoid exactly these issues. I have been trying to get Counter-Strike to work under wine for several weeks now. I have finally come to the conclusion that openGL is the problem. Whatever I try, nothing seems to fix it. I have downloaded the nvidia drivers and openGL is working (I have only verified it by looking at the openGL screensavers, but they work fine). I've compiled the latest version of wine, with --enable-opengl and ./tools/wineinstall, but openGL will simply NOT compile. I don't get any errors I can see on compile, but afterwards libopenGL32.so is nowhere to be found. I've tried the Slackware package of wine, wine.tar.gz source, wine CVS, winex CVS. I've tried using the Mesa headers, deleting any other libGL's, everything. I only want to play one game on my computer and that's CS. Can anyone help? I know I have not given technical details here, because as always I am looking for someone who has actually got this working under the same setup as myself. I can fill the whole dam page with outputted pipes

Slackware 9.0
nVidia GeForce4 MMX 440

i'd like to point out that you already have a counter-strike + wine thread so there wasn't much need to make a new thread....
anyways did you follow these instructions?
and do you have your nvidia drivers installed?
if you did try this tutorial, did you do what is mentioned at the end of the article related to libopengl32 ?

I think your goal is in vain anywayz. I installed wine and Starcraft and got them both running successfully, except that the end result was Starcraft running like crap. You should try winex or is it xwine.. i don't remember, but it is made specifically for games.. just a tip from someone who's tried, good luck tho, i hope you succeed where i failed, but if you do, be sure to post it here for the rest of us penguins.

I opened a new thread as my other requests for help seemed to have gone unoticed. I'll know better next time.

Yes I followed all the instructions. They didn't help. This is why I asked again. I only post a question when I have exhausted all my resources. One of the main problems with GNU/Linux is that you have to know the nature of your problem before you ask the question. Most people don't know this, and so really the first task is to get the the crux of the problem. Mine was that OpenGL was not being compiled correctly in wine. There was no error message about this, it was a conflict between the gl.h and glex.h provided in XFree86 4.3 and the lastest version of wine. I deleted the files, and symlinked to the ones in /usr/doc/NVIDIA[version]/include/GL. Recompiled wine and that finally worked. The thread that worked for me was buried deep in wineHQ, I'd not even been able to find that forum, the only one it pointed me to was the usenet forums.

If anyone needs help installing Counter-Strike/Half-Life with wine on Slackware 9 with an nVidia card, I know exactly what to do!

Thanks for the help,

munkeh
