=46ixme are not errors. They are a way to say something like "There is a=20
problem, but I know how to work around with it"

In this case, the application you try to run is in 8bpp colors, and X11 is =
to be in 32bpp mode. this means that wine has to convert the applications=20
graphics in 32bpp before giving it to X11.

If you don't care about fixme, you can do "WINEDEBUG=3Dfixme-all wine=20
application.exe" instead of "wine application.exe"
