It seems like wine doesn't see the Nvidia propretary drivers properly.

When I try to launch wine ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/dxdiag.exe, Dxdiag crashes immediately. It says it has problems with directx.

In the terminal, I found this error message:

"err:winediag:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo Direct rendering is disabled, most likely your OpenGL drivers haven't been installed correctly (using GL renderer "GeForce GTX 470/PCIe/SSE2", version "1.4 (2.1.2 NVIDIA 295.40)")."

And with glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version I receive:

OpenGL version string: 4.2.0 NVIDIA 295.40

Anyone has any idea about this problem?

PS: I use Blender and the 3d performances are perfect.
