Steam games not working

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – hello all, I'm unable currently to get some Steam games that worked on my previous system to work for me now. I have an ATI card and it's taken me a while to get it to work. However I can get Enemy Territory (Wolfenstein) to work so I think I have my graphics driver working properly. FYI, in the process of trying to install the ATI drivers I knocked out my GUI and had to reinstall 11.2. Once I reinstalled Wine, I got Steam to work. I had installed Steam and downloaded some games before I installed the graphics drivers. I didn't expect them to work then but I do now that the graphics drivers are installed. However, these games were installed on an installation that I overwrote when I reinstalled 11.2. I'm wondering if that might make a difference. Also, I've never run these games under Linux on this system. My previous system had an Nvidia card. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your attention. (Distributions)
