hl.exe isn't starting with WINE


I lately installed WINE and downloaded a triple combo pack of half-life, opposing force, and blue shift for the second time. The first time, which was before I re-installed Slackware, it worked all right, but now, after I re-installed Slackware, hl.exe just won't run at all. I go into a terminal, cd to the directory, and type "wine hl.exe" and get the following error message:
Code:
bash-3.1# wine hl.exe
fixme:d3d_caps:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for GL vendor 3 and card vendor 8086.
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32f4ac,0x00000000), stub!
fixme:d3d_caps:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for GL vendor 3 and card vendor 8086.
I honestly have no idea what the problem is, aside from "No card selector available for GL vendor 3 and card vendor 8086", which I have a bit of trouble understanding.. any ideas on the subject?

You should probably change the title to something a little more obvious. The only reason I clicked on this topic is because I have played Half Life recently and knew what hl.exe was.

Anyway, the problem sounds like either your video card drivers aren't installed properly, or you need to configure Wine's video settings.

What video hardware do you have, and which drivers are you running for it?

Well, I installed Slackware just like I did last time, and I really don't know where to find out what drivers I'm using... I'm not into troubleshooting much, hehe... where could I find out?

'lspci' should list all pci devices, you should be able to identify it from the list it presents.
You may need to run the command as root, and if you're not sure, post it here and we'll have a look.

I believe you had it right the first time, no worries. It's really not hard to tell the difference usually.

Alright, thanks. I'm still sort of new to Linux, having only been using it for about 3 or 4 months now.

You will want to install the proprietary Nvidia Linux drivers to get any serious 3D performance.

How did you install WINE? Is it a precompiled package, or did you build from source?

Source. and I did the exact same thing I did this time before I re-installed Slackware, and it worked fine.

Well obviously something must be different, since it doesn't work this time and it did before. Can you think of anything you did differently? Did you do a full install both times?

Nope, nothing different. Full install both times and the same packages installed n' everything.
