What works

with a virtual desktop of 1680x1050

(probably ati and/or ati-opensource driver related that it doesn't work out of the box)

What does not

playing the game on medium/high settings for longer than an hour at once on medium/high settings

(due to GTA-SA's inherent 1.5GB max-RAM flaw, where it dies when it reaches that much RAM (afaik), so lower the graphics settings to i.e. get the paramedic-missions done without crashing the game. If it dies below 1.5GB Ram usage (gnome-system-monitor monitored) try a x64 wineprefix)

(CLEO-autoinstaller also doesn't seem to work )
