32bit OpenGL with wine

Do you have problems running OpenGL apps under Wine with an Nvidia card and a 64bit Linux? Wine says X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo couldn’t initialize OpenGL?

Here’s the fix.

apt-get install ia32-libs, if it’s already installed and you still have problems, move on to the next step
– move everything from /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu to /usr/lib32 EXCEPT /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/glib2.0.
– extract the official 64bit Nvidia driver: ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run -x
– copy libGL.so.290.10 (or newer) and the tls directory from Nvidia driver’s directory called 32 to /usr/lib32
– create symlinks libGL.so.1 and libGL.so in /usr/lib32, they should both point to libGL.so.290.10
– run sudo ldconfig

That’s it. Now wine should run OpenGL apps without problems.
