you'd better ask this in a related forum, I'd suggest the 'general' forum

Hi Neo_Claw,

try it with Wine or Transgaming's WineX.

Hi,

first off all, i'm not a native english speaker !

Ok, what is to do, that run under linux:

- the game must be installed unter windows with all patches.
- start linux.
- get the lastest version of wine from their [url=http://www.winehq.com]site[url].
- install wine-sources: ./configure && make depend && make && su -c "make install"
(i take in the configure-options: --disable-debug --disable-trace --enable-opengl)
- go to the directory where is installed, for example /dos2/games/Divine Divinity
(/dos2 is my mount-point for a vfat-partition)
- go to the subdirectory called Run
- start the "configtool.exe" with "wine configtool.exe" and make the following options:
- software-rendering
- 800x600
- skip test
- start the test
- mount your dvd/cdrom with the game-cd !
- run with "wine div.exe"
- have fun

I tested this with the german version of and the 2 latest patches.

On my -Page comes soon a more explained description of this.

A screenshoot of a running under linux.

The reason is, that the install-program wan't install under linux. I don't figure out why. (The cd is mounted and the install-process is on the way but the installprogram dont find the cd !)

I write first a german article howto install it under linux and will translate him later.

If somebody help me for the translation, contact me, because my english is terrible.

The && means that the second command only executed when the first was successfully executed.

I use GNU/Linux since 4 or 5 years. First distribution was SuSE and since a half year i use my own distribution which based on the book from LinuxFromScratch or short LFS. You must compile everything yourself and you know what you install.

Sorry, it is not my distribution. The owner is Gerard Beekmans. I think he is from the Netherland and live now in Canada.

My advise to you is: Read the book, read it again. It is not easy and follow the book in every instruction.
