What works

Installing GPL via the manual of the GPL Installer ( works fine. As long as you stick to the updates suggested in the manual of the gpl installer everything works. Things you have to watch are:

- you can install GEM+2, this works fine

- tips on the site are still usefull

- make sure to select the correct rasterizer (OpenGL or Direct3D)

- decrease the amount of sounds to 3 or 4 within GPL

- depending on you're computer specifications; do not use full graphics

- adjust the sound within winecfg to the right sound programm (ALSA or OSS)

- disable Dynamic Lighting

- GPL won't start without a prefix like : env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine "C:\Sierra\GPL\gpl.exe"

What does not

What does nog work:

- Sound does not work to the maximum amount of sound. GPL crashes. I will try to use native

- dsound.dll. Maybe this will work.

- I have a limited amount of buttons working on my Logitech Formula Force EX steering wheel.

- Configuring the axis of my steering wheel gives a deadzone when configuring them within GPL.

- I use jscal -c /dev/input/js0 wich works fine

- I get a random crash of GPL with the following wine error

 err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x94d100 "?" wait timed out in thread 001c, blocked by 0009, retrying (60 sec)
