Additional Comments

Need For Speed Most Wanted 1.3 with no-cd/dvd patch. It segfaults while loading the race " wine: Unhandled exception 0x80000003 at address 0x45cd20 (thread 0046), starting debugger... err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("winedbg --auto 71 188") (31) Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger" I have nearly identical problem with NFSU2. Im not sure if its not related to no-cd patch(and securom), because i dont remember which, but I have some sort of original games, but im to lazy to insert disk, and after patching it started segfaulting with "unhandled exception". My brother which use windows didnt has such problems with this same games. Many distros has securom patches(and many others), so its worth to check if its not realated(Its not strange that on some distros its working, and others not ?) Its also not too hard to see that many peoples has such segfaults in nfs on multi-core processors (i have athlon xp 2000+, so im sure im not using smp). I dont know if its related, but I saw that instructions on transgaming say that cedega must be run with -pthread argument to nfsu2 not segfault.
