uhh...i have a feeling you don't really understand my question, which makes sense. I'm still using X11. It's just a different name. The actual X11 application is blocked, but if I rename it to something different, it's unblocked. I just need to make wine use the X11 that I renamed instead of the X11 that is named X11. Otherwise, it doesn't work and it just says that X11 is blocked. But if I could make wine use the X11 that i renamed, then it would work. I just need to know how to do that.
For example, let's just say I copied my X11 and renamed it "WineX11". X11 doesn't work, but WineX11 does. But Wine always uses X11 instead. Despite the fact that I can open up WineX11, it doesn't matter, since wine is attempting to create an X server using the application X11. But if I can change it to use WineX11, then it would use that instead of X11. note that this name change is only for the APPLICATION X11, not like the X11 files in the library. It's just the APPLICATION. I'm pretty sure the other files are on my mac and don't need their names changed.
Oh and I should have mentioned this before, but I have a mac, with OSX 10.5 leopard
And again, I really don't know why this happens, it just does, lucky for me :)
