    IE6 on AMD64 Ubuntu

    Sadly I need IE6.
    At home I have IE6 running on 32bit Ubuntu no problems.
    I installed latest wine in a dchroot environment on AMD64 Dapper and it appears to installed fine
    except I'm getting:

    Code:
    X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
      Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
      Serial number of failed request:  17
      Current serial number in output stream:  18
    Suggesting something to do with GLX graphics drives. I get the same error when running glxgears in dchroot. I have 64bit ATI fglrx drivers installed.
    TIA.
    Any pointers? Normally I'd make sure the correct graphics kernel module whas installed - but how does this work in dchroot with a 64bit kernel? I'm not too keen on downgrading to 32bit as everything except wine is fine.

    I used this script to configure my 32bit chroot.

    However that specific error is caused when you don't have OpenGL support working.

    indeed. Thanks, I installed
    Code:
      sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
    and it all works now.

    I used this procedure to set up IE6 http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Installation
