Just responding to my own post.  I was discussing with people on
#winehq and found the cause of the problem.

This seems to be because debian unstable package had opengl disabled for
as opengl support seems to be in a separate package, libwine-gl in
debian unstable now..

Could the important wine config such as this be clearly stated in the
output when it is the cause of a fault like this please? (If there is a
sane way to do it.. such as seeing the opengl32.dll does not exist before
the software fails?)

If it is not mentioned as at present, every user has to hunt for the
skel dll and find it is 0 bytes and then discover that indicates wine
was not configured with opengl support enabled.

audio does not seem to work in 20050419 from winehq deb. I have
"HardwareAcceleration" = "Emulation" in [dsound] which got it working
with my old wine install.

I have to force it with "Drivers" = "wineoss.drv"  to get it to work.

Is the audio stuff not deciding for its self anymore?

In addition 20050419 package is 1 month older than debian unstables
20050524, is there a plan for a 20050524 winehq deb?

I would also encourage winehq to work with debian maintainers so there
are not two groups of people creating packages for debian.

Kind regards
