as for your question 0, I reinstalled the beta drivers today to give you a more useful answer.
Non-working applications are:
wine + snes9x
wine + VBA
wine + diablo2 with the opengl renderer
native opengl-applications seem to work, 64 bit (ut2k4) or 32 bit (nwn). Other wine-applications that don't use openGL seem to work as well. The error message is always something like this:
X Error of failed request: GLXBadDrawable
Major opcode of failed request: 128 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 29 ()
Serial number of failed request: <varies>
Current serial number in output stream: <varies>
This issue was already discussed in another thread in here
and in a wine bugzilla entry
, but no solution was found yet, so using the beta drivers doesn't solve my problems.
on a positive note, the beta drivers haven't locked the system yet, so I'll keep them as the lesser of two evils for now. Any help to get the non-beta drivers working is still appreciated.
