WINE not working. GLXBadContext Error

First post from total linux n00b coming up.....

I'm trying to run WINE on Fedora Core 5 on an Athlon64.

It comes up with the error:

wine: creating configuration directory '/root/.wine'...
X Error of failed request: GLXBadContext
Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
Serial number of failed request: 166
Current serial number in output stream: 166
wine: wineprefixcreate failed while creating '/root/.wine'.
[root@localhost ~]# wineserver: could not save registry branch to /root/.wine-1ay6Kh/system.reg : No such file or directory
wineserver: could not save registry branch to /root/.wine-1ay6Kh/user.reg : No such file or directory

Same happens when not root,

Anyone have any ideas?

First advice: Never run programs as root, only needed commands and system config tools. It looks like you have problems with your video drivers, have you tried to install them ? And what video hardware do you run?

I had this with Athlon 64, FC5 and ATI drivers.

My solution was to disable SE Linux and reboot.
