trying to install Cedega but not working as far as i can tell.

i downloaded the rpm and changed it into a tgz and when i do
installpkg Cedega*.tgz
it appears to be working but i cant get anything to work.

is there a way to get things to work properly? i am still a n00b so i dont have full understanding of Slack yet.

Cedega is a pay-for-use service, isn't it? They might have tech. support who would be better able to help out in that respect....

OTOH, it's just a rebranded WINE clone with a few additions. You might also be able to get it working with WINE instead of Cedega. Sorry I can't actually help with that, though. The only reason I would run Cedega is for games, and I have a separate WinXP partition on my desktop for exactly that purpose.

Try getting a "generic" package instead of a RPM.

download the short version from Transgaming and use that instead...seems to work fine.

Whilst you're there also grab P2P...most excellent

Or you could drop Mandouche and get Ubuntu, download the .deb and then dpkg -i cedega_[version]_i386.deb. ;)
Then simply apt-get all your software/package needs. ;)

Quick question from a newb, if Linux is all about open-source (obviously free) software, why do we have to pay for WineX ? ;)

Good info about the package, but Slackware doesn't use debian's packages (although it can install them...).
Also, Cedega is a enchanced version of Wine, those differences and support are what you're paying for.

Yea, WineX is free but Cedega is like WineX + some and the company makes u pay for the +some. It does a pretty good job from what ive used it. Today ill probaly attempt to install Steam then HL2.

O and now to try to solve ur problem. Try installing from source. It's fairly simply and doesnt take much time. Another way is to download Point2Play(also from the ppl who do cedega) and install it that way. I did have a problem once w/ a game running thru P2P but i just installed Cedega by hand(compiled) and it worked just fine.
