Counter-Strike under Wine

Ok, here is my problem. I installed Wine last night and then wanted to immedantly install Counter-Strike. So I did and i started it and ran into my first problem. My version was to old, so I had to download the new Retail Version . That was finished, now comes the problem i can't get to fix. When I start the trainning or a new LAN or INTERNET game it goes to the "Loading" window. Ok it finishes loading and I can hear it in the background, but the "Loading" window does not move so i can not see what i am doing, but i can move with the keyes. The second problem is that if i refresh or update ther server list for LAN or INTERNET it does not show me anything, plus it takes like 4 min each time to get the server information. (I checked the server I have and ther fine) So what is the problem. I already go these answers but they have not helped yet.

-Get a new computer
-Dont know
-Use OpenGL
-Use WineX

Ok the first two are bad . but then i thought about the OpenGL which i do have and tried it. But what does it say, "OpenGL is not supported by your video driver" but that is wrong. I use the same OpenGL and Video Driver for Enemy Territory, Vendetta and much more games.

So what is the problem? Help will make me happy

If you have an nvidia card download and run:

Fix any errors it reports. Should solve many problems.

Is the database entry for counter strike.
Should have plenty of info on how people got it to work (or not, never tried myself)

Make sure you are using the newest version of wine:

And click download, get the tarball and compile it, or the newest rpms (emerge, apt-get or whatever you are using).

Good luck! And post your expiriences in the database, remember the more people say things, the more helpful it is for others.

Yeah I already did that but i think the problme is that it does not support my graphic card driver. I have ATI Radeon 7200 which is not supported by ATI anymore so i think I use a different one which is not supported. (Dont know which one right now). Well just got to wait till the Xbox Counter-Strike comes out.
