i have experimented a lot with wine-versions and counterstrike under 
linux and had everytime the same problem with ingame sound. Finally i 
tried the wine-version from 22.01.2002 (20020122) which works great. I 
had nothing to change in the wine config and in the counterstrike 
config. The game runs great and i have sound.

But since yesterday i am trying to install Medal of honor under wine. 
The game seems to run but crashes in single player mode when i turn 
around, multiplayer mode runs without any errors. If somebody has a 
solution for this problem, i would be very thankfull.
