           Summary: "Unable to create window..." error prevents second life
                    from running
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.9.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-binary
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: chadjsalamon at gmail.com

I am running Ubuntu 6.06 x86, but on an AMD 64 machine (Ubuntu AMD64 wouldn't
install), using an ASUS A8N5X MB and an ATI x800 graphics card using the fglx
drivers. I am able to install SecondLife, however when running it fails to
detect DirectX and gives the error Can't activate GL rendering context (this is
in a popup window - I believe it is coming from the application and not wine).
The error message from wine is "Unable to create window, be sure screen is set
at 32-bit color in Control Panels->Display->Settings" (full trace attached).
However I just recently installed Ubuntu on my other machine (an older machine
with an Nvidia card) and doing the same thing SecondLife runs fine. I have tried
running with the -ignormepixeldepth option, and I've went into winecfg and tried
under Windows 2000 and XP, disabled/enabled all of the options and I've tried
using a virtual desktop, nothing works. I do certainly have hardware
acceleration and openGL functioning properly, but it seems to me like wine is
not properly detecting or reporting the graphics capability on certain hardware
