However, not long ago I bought a 1 TB hard disk which I divided into 7 partitions: /boot, (swap), /, /var, /tmp, /usr and /home (yes, that's FreeBSD influence right there). When I finished compilation of Wine, I found I could no longer install DirectX. Age of Empires III, Black & White II and Unreal Tournament III wouldn't install either - it wouldn't budge. These are the errors DXSetup produces:

No...there are a few cases where it is needed, though d3dx9 is
preferred (from winetricks).

Where are you running the executable from? Is it one of the noexec partitions?
