[Wine] Portal crashes after splash screen.

System: Pentium 4 2.6ghz, 1GB RAM, and 128mb ATI Radeon 9800 graphics card. Ubuntu 8.04, and Wine 1.1.5.

I set up Steam in accordance with the appdb entry, and I installed portal from the DVD retail release. Installation went perfectly.

Problem: After the valve/source logo screens, the mouse appears, the screen goes white, and the main menu music plays. Since there is no menu, it has to be killed manually. 

I've tried: 
Setting hl2.exe to Windows 98
Running it with this command:
wine steam -silent -applaunch 400 -window -novid -dxlevel 80 -width 1024 -height 768 
Disabled in-game steam community.

While running, the game outputs a billion OPEN_GL_INVALID_ OPERATION errors to the terminal.

Other games I can run perfectly: Tribes, Defcon, Kid Mystic, Battlezone II.


OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9800 PRO
OpenGL version string: 2.1.7412 Release

Any Ideas? I just want to figure out if the cake really is a lie...
Thanks in advance!
