    You'll probably have better luck using something other than WINE to run 3D accelerated Windows games on Linux. Cedega is one option, but it's not free. There are numerous posts on the forum about it.

    If you're just worried about playing single-player games that don't require the internet then you could always dual-boot with MS Windows and only open up your internet connection when you're in Linux. Just a thought.

    Because this thread came up first on my google search on wine and hitman, it still felt appropiate to comment.

    If you read the error message closley, it states 'missing file, p5dll.dll'. Which would indicate you are missing the p5dll.dll file. If you are using non standard mounts (e.g. one big root) then the exec option might not be set (e.g. no execution of binaries allowed from 'this' partition).

    I also recognize the p5 from the setup, where it asks you wether you want to use a p5 glove. If you do not have such a glove, don't select it and it shouldn't even try to load the dll. Hope this helps whoever comes into this same issue again.

    Hitman 2 appears to work fine for me on wine, without any tweaking or the likes.
