    Hello,
    Recently I installed Steam on my computer over msiexec and installed Garry's Mod and Garry's Mod 13, but when attempting to launch, the 'Preparing to launch...' window appears before closing itself after a while. The hl2.exe process launches normally, displaying status as 'Executing', peaks up to 29.0 MB then falls back down in the process list as a Zombie process with 'N/A' memory.
    I'm running a Debian distro on an Acer Aspire One NAV50, Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66 GHz.
    Standalone GCF-Extracted versions of Garry's Mod won't work with Steam running over WINE, either.
    They DO work when rebooting the computer and launching.

    Output Log when launching through the console:

    Wine 1.0.1? Um... that version of Wine is at least four years old now, have you tried upgrading it? Newer versions of Wine have much better compatibility with Steam and Source games.

    Indeed, you should always be using the latest version when it comes to WINE.

    ugh. WINE is very fiddly. Check out PlayOnLinux. http://www.playonlinux.com/en/

    yes but it's all automated with scripts, any dependencies are automatically configured and it downloads a specific version of WINE that has been tested with the game. It's easier than mucking about with regressions and out dated instructions.

    your advice on using the latest stable is not always the right path with something like WINE, fixing one thing can break another.

    Guess I'll update is as soon as I can. This is a school laptop and we don't have superuser permissions.
    The update could take quite the time to perform.
    Also, I noticed that not even GCF standalones seem to work. Older versions of Garry's Mod seem to work just fine. Not sure about things like TF2 or Portal.

    You could try to boot in runlevel 1, if you're not prompted for a password you're in luck...

    I have tried the package install for most of the debian versions as well as ubuntu. What I have found is the package managers like apt-get/aptitude install older versions of Wine. In my experience the best way to get Wine running and working properly is to download it and compile it from source.

    the official ppa from winehq installs the latest, which is 1.4 at the moment.
