Morrowind under Wine

Hi there!!
I am runing wineX 3.3 build from cvs and i've been able to put Warcraft III (ROC & FT) working perfectly...

Now im trying to put morrowind to work but it gives me the error messages that follows

fixme:dsound:DirectSoundCreate8 Check wcaps
mmtime pid=3726 tid=3726
fixme:dsound:IDirectSoundImpl_SetCooperativeLevel (0x4041e954,00010021,2):stub
fixme:dsound:IDirectSoundImpl_SetCooperativeLevel (0x4041e954,00010021,2):stub
fixme:ddraw:Direct3DDevice8_ResourceManagerDiscardBytes (0x40417388)->(524288): stub
fixme:ddraw:Direct3DDevice8_ResourceManagerDiscardBytes (0x40417388)->(524288): stub
fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit system modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.
err:ddraw:Direct3DDevice8_CreateContext exclusive owner already set

I've googled this message but can't find concrete answers ....

The problem seems related with direct3d but a few days ago i discovered that morrowind was made under opengl
www . evga . com / support / games . asp
(soory for putting the url in that manner but im new here an i cant post urls yet :) )

I think that it might be possible to force morrowind to run under opengl (it seems strange that the game was made with opengl and i get direct3d errrors ) but i've not found nothing under the config files of the game ...

Any help with be very apreciated 'cause it save me many reboots to windows ...

Thanks in advance!
