Hey all, I'm new to linux and to wine, and I was helping if I could get some help. I used a clean installation of wine ( or something) on Ubuntu 9.10 and tried to install Half-Life. I updated all the way to, and the program wouldn't start up. At all. I ran wine manually through the console and it was telling me some files were missing! Great. Anyways, I uninstalled HL and reinstalled, but the graphics were all messed. The entire intro video played in about 0.2 seconds, then froze for the rest of the sound of the video. Then it did the same thing for the Valve intro. Then, the graphics were jerky and when I played a new game, the screen was black. Completely unplayable.

If anyone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
