> Greetings! I was just banned from the #winehq channel on freenode for suggesting to a newbie that he use winetricks to install directx 9c. I was told that winetricks is for developers and that installing directx this way can damage your wine install.
> I am currently using the latest developers version of wine with directx 9c installed and configured with the latest winetricks. I am playing the latest Civilization 4 expansion pack with no problems whatsoever on Ubuntu 8.10.
> I resent getting banned for accurate information and think that channel bans should be reserved for obscene or abusive behavior only.
> Thank you for tolerating this rant.
