    Wine Runs Super Slow


    I'm running Ubuntu 5.10 and I did manage to get wine installed without an issue and did get steam installed but wine runs sooo slow. I type "winecfg" and it takes about 5 mins for the configuration window to appear. Also starting steam with wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam/Steam.exe takes about 5-7 minutes to start. Once steam loads it respondes extremely slow. I have not even been able to get into Counter Strike because it is so slow. To stop it from running I have to do ctrl + alt + backspace and log back in.
