Hey all you fellow UBUNTU users!! How far has this o/s come in just the last year. The development is exciting.
I have 2 questions I really need some help with.
1. I am having nothing but problems installing COD4 through wine, one issue after another. I have finally narrowed it down to one last hurdle. It is saying that my video card does't support enough shaders, and directx might not be installed?? I have been running the standard nvidia drivers installed by Hardy. Do I need to run the nvidia drivers from nvidia to support directx or open gl properly and also to allow this game to work. I have a geforce 8600gt. But everything else seems to work fine. MInd you this is the first game I have installed with wine ... THANKFULLY.
2. How do I install the nvidia drivers from nvidia, I used to use edgy with earlier versions of ubuntu, but now I am lost. I realise I have to run it sh >nvidiadriver. but its not that straight forward. Anyway any help would be great. I have been reading all these articles with ppl being able to even run crysis, COD4 multiplayer, TF2 etc... but I can't even get past this hurdle. it is so frustrating.
