Why doesn't Portal with Wine with the radeon driver work?

Postby s3a » 2011-06-04 20:31

I am using Wine 1.2. It works with fglrx but not with the radeon driver. I am using the AMD/ATI HD4850 video card. The following terminal output shows the wine error and that the radeon driver has OpenGL 2.1 support which to my understanding is at least the equivalent of Direct3D 9 (which is all I need). Also, there is a wine popup for every attempt to run a Windows game (none of the games I have work with the radeon driver except Nexuiz which is native and it works at max settings): http://i.imgur.com/120tj.png.

deniz@debian:~$ cd /home/deniz/Desktop/portal
deniz@debian:~/Desktop/portal$ wine Portal.exe

Z:\home\deniz\Desktop\THEO~4WC\EXTR~FR4\portal>start hl2.exe  -steam -game portal -appid 400 -console

deniz@debian:~/Desktop/portal$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10.2

with fglrx-driver installed:
Code: Select all
deniz@debian:~$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
OpenGL version string: 3.3.10666 Compatibility Profile Context

so, the version of OpenGL supported by the proprietary driver is higher than that of the open source driver which is not shocking but what I don't understand is why a Direct3D 9 game is not working with OpenGL 2.1 support through wine.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
