32 bit fglrx drivers in slackware 64 multilib

hey all...

im trying to run games in wine on my slackeware -current multilib machine.

i followed the instructions given by alien as far as going multilib, and have installed his packages for wine. im having an issue, however, with ati's fglrx drivers.

theyre not there. in /usr/lib/ i have all the files, but i am lacking the files in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri

i need the 32 bit drivers in order to run any games through wine, or any 32 bit games that use direct rendering, for that matter.

so the question is, how do i install 32 bit ati proprietary graphics drivers on my slackware 64 multilib machine?

Hi, if you use the internal slackbuild, is located in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri; I don't know if is due to how
I compile wine ( I don't use AlienBob slackbuild ) but I have to launch wine in this manner

LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri wine something.exe
