Extra X init screen, for wine games, (UnrealGold) Slackware box/


I need to do something like that. I run the game UnrealGold under wine. Minus the fact that its getting the similar problems the two people from that link have, it works great AND can play online. THose slimeball transgamers would give it a '5'. Plus its my favoruite game.

I do exactly like it says, of course modifiying the commands for my game (This is all on slackware)

And run the exectuable script I stashed in that bin directory and I get..

ftgow@unatco:~$ unrealgold
Using authority file /home/ftgow/.Xauthority

to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present

(II) Initializing extension GLX
gnome-session: you're already running a session manager

waiting for X server to shut down

The screen changes and I get a brief glimpse of the x curser in front of the black and white background, yet it chages back to my default X screen (gnome 2.4, mozilla everythings unchanged)

Now that was on gentoo (the warcraft 3 guys setup) and this is slackware so god knows it all different. Regardless I dont know enough about X initliztion, (I had to create the /etc/X11/XSessions direcotry referenced from that the above URL) So im guessing I should be doing it a different way.

So anybody who could help me, that would be really cool and id show you my bum. box. my linux box.

Thanks. If I can just get this to work the application wil be solid, The damn bug/feature of wine full screen gaming drives me nuts. (They should make the wine 'window manager' intergrate with the window managers we all use, for usabliitty. intergrateion, and the fact that the windows window manager looks like crap even when its NOT run through an application layer on a unix system. screw windows.
