	You need to make sure that OpenGL support in Wine is compiled in 
(run ./configure --verbose and fix all warnings).

	If you aren't compiling Wine yourself then your question doesn't make sense - 
all Linux application that are using OpenGL use driver (proprietary or not) 
you have installed. If this isn't the case, your driver installation is 
broken. What is the output of this command?

	Personally I recommend to use wine-1.1.13 and 180.22 NVidia driver for best
