The issue looks like that, the same message "preparing to launch" forever. One hass Ge Force GTS 250 with old nvidia-304xx driver, second one has Ge Force GT 520M optimus with Intel integrated GPU. I found out, that the problem is in the network, and I think the problem not in wine, steam or my PCs at all. If you have any steam games that can be run independently of steam (e.g.Cross Over makes it easier to use Wine and Code Weavers provides excellent technical support to its users.All purchases of Cross Over are used to directly fund the developers working on Wine.For more information, see our wiki page on third party applications. source.winehq.org/git For the latest development version. Alternative download site for the official source and documentation tarballs.
Somehow I think its worth pointing out that RHEL has really old and limited packages.A note: In general, it is a Bad Idea to install copies of Direct X in Wine - Wine has its own versions of these libraries which should not be overwritten (except in very particular cases).As far as I can tell from the App DB entry for Co D4, while you may need to patch Wine (which I assume is why you were building it from source), you don't need to install Direct X.I wanted to try Call of Duty 4 (demo) so I have compil the last wine GIT following the different how TO ... However after starting Steam in the new wine, the game is slow like hell I have no idea why ??? Call of Duty 4 required the installation of directx, which I have done.But I think it kill the setup of counter strike ?????
