If you experience difficulties starting/running
by NothingSerious on Saturday February 20th 2016, 17:51
the game out of steam you might want to try the following:
1. Start the steam client as you do normally.
2. Select the library menu in the steam client
3. open (in another terminal) "winecfg", go to libraries, search for dbghelp, set to native then builtin
4. start fallout

As my steam client runs only when dbghelp is disabled (wine version 1.6.1) I didn't knew which settings are required to get fallout running (as it didn't run with my default "run steam" settings) but found this solution accidentally myself. Hope this might help someone.
