So, I decided to try out Wine this afternoon, since I wanted to play a video game, and I no longer have windows installed. Sounds simple, up2date wine, then run my program. Of course, that didn't work. Somebody suggested a newer wine, so I went ahead and fought with the RPM, and got the newest one to build (removed 2 patches, re-worked one other). Still didn't work. So I went to the wine website, and started poking around. I found some stuff in the faq-o-matic there which was helpful, although the question in question was in need of a good purging of confusing info. So, I got it working, and installed StarCraft (though the DirectX install blew up. Not sure if that should have worked or not). StarCraft actually runs, and if I run via sudo, it runs full-screen, and looks very spiffy, but it locks up my keyboard and mouse. Gar, back to the FAQ-O-Matic
