Thank you for the useful info, but while you must do things as this: "recompile wined3d.dll", Linux will not take off.

I dont understand "Linux will not take off" ???

Just apply the patch and recompile the dll or Wine, your choice and then the benchmark will run.

twickline said...

It just hit me.... Linux wont take off if people have to compile source code :D

But thats the joys of linux isnt it?

OMG! - Linux won't take off because you can compile source code in it! The horror!

You can compile stuff in windows as well, you'll need to download something extra from the internet and install it tho. Does that make Windows less userfriendly?

OMG! Oranges are ... orange!

Linux won't take off because average/typical computer user does not even know what "compiling" or "source code" means.

And you cannot compare normal windows, or OSX type software installation to Linux type "apply this batch/and compile that driver/dll/program to run this." setup.

Get the point & see the big picture ?

If the Linux comunity doesn't learn to realise that compling isn't user friendly then Linux wont take of.

Give us precmopiled binaries with proper setups.

"If the Linux comunity doesn't learn to realise that compling isn't user friendly then Linux wont take of."

This comment is irrelevant here. Linux is user friendly now. I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy at work, with a VM running windows for the sole purpose of running Visual Studio. I haven't compiled anything since I insalled it. And I'm doing much more than I could do in windows, and easier.

We 're talking about wine here. A layer that helps you run windows applications in linux. Sure, it isn't perfect, but many applications run with default settings.

I'm ready to hear how someone can run linux/unix applications easily in windows. Don't compare apples to oranges.

When I disabled winedevice.exe (with winecfg, libraries) I could start the test, but got this just before it dided:

process tid prio (all id:s are in hex)
0000000c 0
0000000b 0
00000008 (D) C:\Program Files\Futuremark\3DMark05\3DMark05.exe
00000018 15
00000009 0 <==
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000090 flags 0 addr 0x7dad77e7
wine client error:9: write: Felaktig filidentifierare

Which win ver. should wine try to be alike? 2K or XP?

twickline said...

Don't disable winedevice.exe.. It's going to take the benchmark awhile to load. and set Wine to win2k

Daniel Holm said...

Ok, I dont havw winedevice disabled and wine set to win2k, but it wont run...

twickline said...

Have you read any of the tips posted here?

I'm not sure, the benchmark is still somewhat a pain to run.

Daniel Holm said...

Now after a fresh Ubuntu Gutsy install and latest Wine, I tried again. Now I get an error about that I:/demo.dat doesnt exists... Starting to get kinda pissed. Help, please.

hi holmen..

I did encounter the same problem as you. The demo.dat is actually in your 3DMark installation folder (i.e. mine is ~/.../program files/Futuremark/3dmark05/). Try not wine-ing from outside the containing folder.

I myself can run the program with another problem. It is loading (i.e. complete the loading screen) but in the end it just sit there with a blank screen without any benchmarking thing. Mine is also a demo hence I guess I cannot disable the post processing.

-I can run Warcraft 3 and WoW only with opengl option. With d3d, they are sluggish.
-I also try Halo but it also hung.
-My glxgears can only show ~2200 fps (but it is considerably great improvement from the default mesa driver with 300 fps)
-some of my konsole output:
fglX11AllocateManagedSurface: __FGLTexMgrAllocMem failed!!
fglX11AllocateManagedSurface: __FGLTexMgrAllocMem failed!!
fglX11AllocateManagedSurface: __FGLTexMgrAllocMem failed!!

Any comment?

lmao at the idiot talking about linux not taking off because you have to patch wine, not for wine, but for a game. i repeat, a game. obviously, you may need to do something to get some game or app to run in wine but we're talking about wine running non-native applications. not native applications. i'm using fedora, which seems to have taken off quite nicely just like several other distros, and i've yum'd everything. including wine. the only reason i recompiled/patched wine was for cod4. so before you put out a stupid statement like, 'if you have to patch, linux won't take off', how about complaining to activision for not having a linux installer? or better yet, go post on activision and tell them how cod4 'won't take off' because you have to patch wine in linux. damn retards.

This could be more helpful. What would his computer have scored on Windows XP? That way we can make an accurate assumption of how well linux with wine compares to windows in terms of performance and whatnot.

I ended here after trying to make Psychonauts to run which required the 3dMark patch

Unfortunately the patch does not seem to work anymore with recent wine versions. I got the same error as described here

Also, the "recompile wined3d.dll" line is intimidating even for a non-newbie like me. Most people have no idea how to compile, nevermind patching.

Perhaps a simple guide on how to do just that might be appropriate or at least some instructions on how to recompile just that file (instead of the whole wine).

In any case, since the patch does not work, is it possible for you to provide this .dll pre-compiled?
