Nobody can give you any solution without giving some more info. What version of Mandriva are you using? If you are using the Free edition then I think you need to install the video card driver.

What's your video card ?

Try starting the games in command line and copy the error messages they give here.

and its the new spring edition and yes its the free one just having problems figuring out how to install the newest drivers for a nVidia GeForce 6100 intergrated


[root@localhost louish]# wine Launch ZypherMU.EXE

wine: created the configuration directory '/root/.wine'

Could not load Mozilla. HTML rendering will be disabled.

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".

err:wgl:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo couldn't initialize OpenGL, expect problems

wine: configuration in '/root/.wine' has been updated.

wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\Launch.exe": Module not found

[root@localhost louish]# wine "C:\Program Files\Zhyper Networks\ZhyperMU Season 3 Episode 2\zhypermu full s3 ep2\ZhyperMU.EXE"

wine: cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Zhyper Networks\ZhyperMU Season 3 Episode 2\zhypermu full s3 ep2\ZhyperMU.EXE'

I would not recommend running normal, everyday programs as root.




Have you added all of your urpmi sources? If not, see the easy urpmi link at the top of the page. Once they are all added, open a console, switch to root and type:




From there, choose your video card (just hit enter on the selection screen) and it will ask if you want to use the proprietary drivers, respond yes and everything will be installed for you. Then restart X (or reboot) and everything should be working in terms of the drivers.
