X-wing doesn't work under wineX.

It installs just fine, but that's about the long and the short of it. Once you start it up, it perpetually asks you to install DirectX 3, and won't let you get past it. Kind of annoying. I've now got a joystick that I don't have a use for just yet, but it's one of those nice Saitek USB adjustable deals which is great since I'm left handed, so I'm not going to get rid of it. If anyone can recommend a good linux game that can make good use of a joystick, I'd be interested to hear about a potential use for my new toy.

Anyway, I really don't care that much about it, I mean, I've got Homeworld working under wineX, so I'm more or less set.

This weekend promises to be wonderful. No computers, no projects, no stress...I get to see Jennifer! Yay!
