Hello. I've recently installed Fedora 16 64bit. I installed the latest driver from Nvidia (290.10) and pretty much got right to installing Playonlinux which installed Wine 1.3.27. I ran the Starcraft 2 installer, installed with no issues and patched. My problems started when I tried to actually hit play to launch into the game. It's giving me an error stating: "directx failed to initialize you may need to reinstall".

So this is where I'm stuck basically... has anyone ran into this issue?

Figured it out... didn't have my video cards 32bit libraries installed.
