Problems with display in wine

Hi, I'm having a problem with wine. When running some programs, images that should appear don't. For example, when using worldcraft, the "camera" window displays nothing but black, when it should be showing (rendering?) objects. Another is in the creature creator demo. When I try to create a monster, there is NOTHING displayed. As a note, both of these programs work fine on this computer in windows. The error message that I seem to get with both is Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0" I have no idea how to fix that. As a note, I do have an older graphics card, an ATI rage pro. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

So you need to get the appropriate driver for your graphics card installed
as a kernel module, and the appropriate GLX library file installed under

Have you visited the ATI site to look for "linux drivers"?
