    Funny, because I have wined3d over here. I can see it compile as make runs.

    If you are _sure_ you are compiling the right thing, do you want me to send you the DLL?

    OK, I have this same graphics card as well. On a Dell computer. I've got 768 MB of memory.

    This fixed DLL... can't we get it and paste it into wine? I've got an installation of Windows if that is what is needed.

    And so on. Any thoughts? I hope this is of some help to someone.
    The same problem here. I also had to change that thing about drive_c. I tried changing the wine config, but nothing changes... Any ideas?

    OK, figured out what the problem is exactly, but they have only got bad hacks that solve it right now.

    <killertux> javaJake: problems is basicly that game takes all CPU away from the sounds... so it's priority problem.
    This explains why tvprunner.exe and wineserver use up my CPU. I've tried various audio settings, but none seem to work. If anyone gets stuck with Joost running with this bug, especially after installation, run "killall -KILL tvprunner.exe" - it's the only way you'll get it to close.

    For more information, visit these links:
    http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=7821
    http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1631

    So, to sum up, this bug is known about already, but cannot be fixed without dramatic patches.

    I recommend that mikewitt post this, or a link to the information, on the HOWTO's Troubleshooting section so that we don't get more posts about this.

    Agreed there... More insight would very much be appreciated.

    OK, those who are dying to know what's being done to figure this out, I'm having a semi-active conversation with pijalu on the Gentoo forums who hosts another HOWTO on this same subject. His latest idea was here:

    I'm trying this out now, will let you guys know how it goes.

    I went and extracted it from the deb package a few pages back. Possibly should be different but I got joost to load with it none the less. Far to slow on this putter tho so il be awaiting the linux client currently in development.

    No, this didn't work on my system. I get the same wierd screeching noises for a half of a second, and the same errors, etc., and it still won't run.

    I'm personally going to wait at this point.

    Re: HOWTO: Joost (with sound)

    After a bit of tweaking, I got Joost running somewhat acceptably.

    First I was getting the black screen after you login. This was caused by my NVidia driver, and was fixed by downloading NVidia's beta driver, then switching over to a new terminal window via Ctrl+Alt+F6, killing gdm, and then installing the driver as root.

    Then I was getting the stuttering sound/video problem. I ran winecfg and went to the Audio tab, then I set the Default Sample Rate to 48000 and the Default Bits Per Sample to 16. While this isn't really a great fix, it plays smoothly about 95% of the time now. There may be a better way, but it's pretty much working now, and I really need some sleep.

    Hope this helps anyone else that's frustrated with the sound problem.

    Edit: I just wrote a small launcher script so I don't have to launch it from a terminal anymore. (attached)
