View Full Version : CS:S+Steam+Wine=Broked.

August 11th, 2007, 06:55 PM
Well... Now I have everything up and running. Including CS:S. the problem is that it loads for a while, then the background screen turns sideways, then is cut in half by a diagonal stripe of agony, then the menu appears, but all of the characters are terribly corrupted, bearing no resemblance to the words that they're supposed to.
I'm using a rather crappy graphics card (nvidia gforce4 MX I believe) so maybe that's the problem?

oh, yeah, and when I quit, it puts me back onto the desktop at 800x600 res, and the buttons of steam (minimize, close, launch, etc.) no longer work.

do you have a kernel newer than 2.6.14? i'm asking this because there some known issues with that kernel or older

What's the code to find that out?:redface:

ajn@ajn-desktop:~$ echo `uname -r`

Not too much of a suprise there.
Regarding the issue at hand, I havent tried HL via wine, actually, I havent used wine at all but I believe that the answers you seek may be found at www.winehq.org.

If you find out anything useful, try and conclude this thread with it, as others may have a similar problem!

Actually http://appdb.winehq.org/ has been far more helpful to me than just winehq. They go through and test a bunch of apps and post the results. I've used it a bunch since I switched over from windows. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find anyone else with this problem there or anywhere so far, so I posted here in hopes that someone would have the skills that I lack to fix it.
