Not sure if I'm doing this correctly, I've never submitted a Hint
before.  I thought some of the LFS Gamers out there would appreciate
this though, so I'll give it a shot.

SYNOPSIS: How to install Doom3 via Winex-cvs

I mainly put this together because I couldn't wait for ID to release the Doom3
Linux binaries, and I stumbled onto Rob Smith's (
HOWTO.  It was close, but I needed to change a few things around in order to get 
this working on my BLFS box.  I thought I would document exactly what I had to do 
differently, and share it.

Sufficient knowledge of (Beyond)LinuxFromScratch.
The Doom3 CDs.
Note: I would dd the 3 CDs to ISO, and mount all 3 of the ISO files as loopback devices. 
During the ""(from below), I was never prompted for the CDs, it
automagically found the mounted devices.

	Download latest wine from
	cd wine-xxxxx/

Install/Tweak transgaming:
	cvs -d:pserver:cvs at login	(password is 'cvs')
	cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs at co winex
	dos2unix GlobalMemoryStatusExFixed.patch
	cd winex
	patch -po < ../GlobalMemoryStatusExFixed.patch
	./configure --enable-pthreads --prefix=/usr/lib/winex-cvs/winex
	make install
	touch /usr/lib/winex-cvs/.transgaming/tg_config_version
	cp ./documentation/sample/config ~/.transgaming
	mv winex-cvs /usr/bin
	chmod +x /usr/bin/winex-cvs
	mv pthreads_stack_test /usr/lib/winex-cvs/winex/bin
	chmod 755 /usr/lib/winex-cvs/winex/bin/pthreads_stack_test
	cp -a ~/.wine ~/.transgaming
	cd ~/.transgaming
	mv drive_c c_drive
	mkdir c_drive/windows/system32
Install/Tweak Doom3:
	chmod +x
	cd ~/doom3/
	mv Doom3.exe Doom3.exe.old
	gzip -d Doom3.exe.gz
	winex-cvs Doom3.exe

Happy fragging!

Most of the commands are taken straight from Rob Smith's HOTWO.  Without his 
HOWTO I would have never gotten this to work...he deserves a big ol' Thank You!!!
