Hi there. I'm trying to turn on DirectX in Wine. (please read whole message, and only after that blamming me).

Recently, I've used Gentoo and it's Wine. But after that, I switched to Fedora
and start using Fedora's Wine. Some programs load successfully, but not DirectX.
As I said before, everything was normal in Gentoo, but not in Fedora. (for both
I have amd64 (x86_64) arch).

I've installed Wine with:

    %# yum install wine.i686

This installs many of i686 libs, seems ok.

After that, I'm running winecfg:

    %# winecfg

And setting up my default.

After that I'm starting dxdiag for testing DirectX:

    %# wine dxdiag

And nothing happens. No window, no messages on console.

    %# echo $?


    %# 0

Everything is OK (return code 0).

I thought that dxdiag is not in this Wine package; So I tryed to install DirectX
from M$ site with guide from this link: http://howto.landure.fr/gnu-linux/install-directx-9-0c-on-linux-using-wine

Everything installs ok.

So, I've tryed to run dxdiag again, and again no window, no messages in console, return code 0.

What can I do? What's happening with it?

Thanks for patience.
