Wine + WineX + Steam


Ok I am posting this because I want to do this all in the proper order. Plus I think I see so many of these I think that this would be a a good post for people who want to game in Linux. I am using Slackware 9.1. I hate rpm so I want to aviod those if all possible. Can someone put the right order to download and install these programs. I tried this before and I had problems with fonts and stuff. I want to get this to work so I can dump Windows forever (Except at work). I am sorry for the repitition of this but I really would like it all in one place. Even if they are links that is cool. So thanks for the help in advance.

well first you only need one or the other (wine that is) and then follow this :
http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...p?articleid=17

and just a little note to you :
some people have noted that they installed steam without the installation of IE and dcom with the latest cvs version of winex ...

and i'll leave it at that
