    Default Serious video problems

    Whenever i start a fullscreen game, like True Combat: Elite for example, i get my screen all corrupted, black stripes and everthing.

    Today i wanted to play Soldat, installed it though wine, everything worked well.
    Then when i wanted to actually play, i launched Soldat and i got this black stripes again. No way of getting rid of them.
    Got the latest ATI graphics drivers. I really dont know what the problem is :S

    Besides, i dont know how to minimize these black striped so i can get a screen shot

    A bit more information about your desktop environment might help here. Are you using KDE4? Compiz enabled?

    Its not a linux problem its an ATI problem combined with 3D

    The problem hasn't really been pinned down. Can you play video ok? Do some of the linux 3D games such as sauerbraten, doom, and gl-117 play ok? I'm thinking this problem is specific to wine /soldat. You may get better support from winehq
